Colossal Coachman Contest

June 30, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - July 17, 2015 @ 7:00 pm

Calling all artists, designers, and creative headwear aficionados! Welcome to this, the first-ever Colossal Coachman Contest presented by elope. 40 stores in 40 cities will select their champions based on the quality and uniqueness of the design. Any theme or genre you care to capture in one coachman hat is your ticket to a Grand Prize of $1,100 in cash and prizes, and Backward Glances is your entry location in New Jersey.


These durable, high-quality blocked hats are sturdy and perfect for decorating. All you need is an Elope coachman hat, and an original design submitted at Backward Glances by July 17th, 2015. You can see all the rules, and a video for inspiration at http://blog.elope.com/colossal-coachman-contest/

All entries must be submitted by July 17th. We’ll tally the votes on July 18th, then join us on Sunday July 19th when we reveal the winner at the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party at Backward Glances!

Our local winner will receive prizes supplied by the stores of the Shoppes at the Arcade; then will go on to compete against 39 other semi-finalists in the national contest for $1100 worth of cash and prizes. So put on your thinking caps! Do you have what it takes to be the ultimate hat designer? Are you ready to throw your hat in the ring?Elope colossal coachman contest
