Blended Remix Contest

Starbucks Frappuccino® blended beverages are custom made just for you, so we'd like to know–how exactly do you want it? We challenge you to express your love – take the things that make you happy and put them into a cup.

Design your happiness in a cup

Create a beverage that defines you and don't hold back! Use the provided template to express yourself by putting what makes you happy into the cup—whether it's your favorite thing, a special place, or even people or ideas! The sky is the limit! Can't fit everything in the cup? That's fine, overflow it with happiness and create an entire scene!

Entries can be created in any medium on the template, but must meet the file requirements described in the Official Rules. You can create an original illustration, manipulate some of your photos, or even print out the template and create a collage with odds and ends around your studio.

I'm going to pass though here and complain that removing these things from my faves is a pain in the ass.

I think the First Place was most certainly deserved. However, there were definitely some better than third that didn't even make the cut, no offense third place person, it was nice, but well, really Unicorns?
I must have missed the instructions that said you were supposed to be in fantasy land.

I feel like there are too many Starbucks mermaids...It loses its originality after so many of them.
