LatinaLista — You’ve heard of Willy Wonka, right?
Well it seems that the singing recluse candy maker is celebrating something new in Wonkaland â€” Day of the Dead!
In fact, Willy is having a contest in honor of the uniquely Latino tradition — with really cool prizes like a MacBook Pro laptop and an iPhone.
Teens ages 13-to-18 are invited to create artistic representations of what the Day of the Dead means to them. Entries can range from flat art, to 3-D art, to music and/or video. Each entry must incorporate the Day of the Dead theme, as well as the WONKA(R) brand and WONKA(R) candies.
Participants will need to upload a photo or video of their artistic masterpiece onto www.HolaMun2.com/wonka. All entries will be judged based on creativity, incorporation of WONKA(R) brand, candy, and Day of the Dead theme and relevance.
To jumpstart your creative juices, HolaMun2’s website has a downloadable kit with skulls, skeletons and other characters to incorporate in your finished artwork, along with plenty of samples and ideas.
To show what they mean, take a look at the following video but don’t wait too long â€” deadline is Sept. 30, 2008.
