1. Enjoy your hot chocolate!

When you are at one of our participating cafes or shops enjoying a hot chocolate, whip out your phone and take a picture of your drink. (Or even better, one of you and your friends indulging in hot chocolate.)

2. Tag @hotchocolatefest in your Instagram photo

Simply tag #VHCFphotocontest in your caption or tag @hotchocolatefest within the photo - and you'll be entered in!  You do not need to do both. 

3. You're entered!

NOTE: DO NOT ENTER VIA IG STORIES. WE MAY 'LIKE' THEM  OR REGRAM THEM BUT THEY WON'T BE ENTERED. ONLY ENTER VIA  PHOTOS POSTED TO YOUR IG WALL.

IF YOUR ACCOUNT IS PRIVATE WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO SEE YOUR TAGS. YOU MUST ALLOW US TO FOLLOW YOU. DM US TO REQUEST A FOLLOW. 


The draw for prizes will be drawn and announced on February 14, 2020. 

Contest Entries

  

Entries to the Hot Chocolate Festival Photo Contest will be accepted until 6 p.m. on Friday, February 14th. If your entry is properly tagged at @hotchocolatefest and placed within the photo of your wall post, OR tagged #vhcfphotocontest in the photo caption, then it will be automatically captured by the system and placed in the ballot queue.  Draws for the winners are automated and random.
 

We have removed the list posted on the website only for the convenience of the viewers as we will not be able to update it by hand today and therefore the count it showed would be inaccurate. 

*Festival organizers, participating vendors, suppliers and the winners of the $500 Grand prize from previous Vancouver Hot Chocolate Festivals are not eligible to win these prizes. Limit: Enter as often as you wish, but only one photo for each Festival flavour per person is permitted.
