PRLog - Apr. 11, 2014 - SAN FRANCISCO -- The search for the best cup design in the USA is over. The grand prize winner of Put Your Best Cup Forward, the first froyo cup design contest, is the Color Prism cup, submitted by Ahmad Yilmaz, co-founder and Creative Director of Forever Yogurt.
Forever Yogurt Prism Cup
The International Frozen Yogurt Association (IFYA) and CarryOutSupplies.com launched the frozen yogurt cup design contest to recognize frozen yogurt shops for their attractive frozen yogurt cups and inspire other frozen yogurt shops to create memorable frozen yogurt cup designs. Both new and existing cup designs were eligible.
The contest was hosted on the IFYA’s Facebook page. Facebook votes from fans determined which frozen yogurt cup designs moved on to stage 2. Nineteen designs were submitted from across the country. Simply Twisted won the most votes, with 949, followed by Yogo Shack with 797 votes.
A panel of experts from the IFYA and CarryOutSupplies.com rated each cup design and selected the best cup design from the eligible entries based on uniqueness, creativity, and overall attractiveness. Judges praised the Forever Yogurt color prism cup for its visually interesting use of color and shapes. They also liked the way the design draws the eye to the Forever Yogurt logo. The runner up and fan favorite, Sweetly Twisted, received high marks for creativity and uniqueness.
“We are thrilled to be able to recognize frozen yogurt shops for their cup design excellence. The contest also was able to generate appreciation and excitement of froyo cup designs among the consumers,” commented Susan Linton, President of the International Frozen Yogurt Association. “Thank you to everyone who entered the contest and voted for the cup designs."
“We are very excited about the results of this contest,” said Andy Lin, Web and Marketing Manager at CarryOutSupplies.com. “It was a tough decision to select one Grand Prize winner out of many great entries, but in the end the scores from the judges agreed on the winner.”
Mr. Lin also commented the anticipated effect of hosting the contest on Facebook. “Many participants were able to drum up support from their communities and I believe the contest served as a platform for them to strengthen those ties in the community. A successful froyo business is one that’s based on the community, and this event helped frozen yogurt business build community around their stores.
As the grand prize winner, Forever Yogurt will receive 10,000 custom 16oz. frozen yogurt cups from CarryOutSupplies.com. To show appreciation for all participants, CarryOutSupplies.com is adding prizes for all entrants. All participants will receive coupon redeemable for anything available from CarryOutSupplies.com.
