Express-News’ annual Fiesta medal competition is underway

February 5, 2019

Bring on the bling, Fiesta medal fans. The Express-News’ annual Fiesta Medals Contest is on.

Each year, we showcase the best pin-on’s from official Fiesta courts as well as area nonprofits, businesses and even individuals who go the extra shimmery mile to whip up such motley, mass-produced medals for Fiesta fans to buy, sell and trade.

This year, we will once again spotlight medals across various categories, including Fiesta royals and events, sports and celebrities and just about any other theme you can slap with some Fiesta flavor. You’ll see the winners later in April in our special Fiesta section and at mySA.com/Fiesta.

Here are the rules:

The Fiesta Medals Contest is open to nonprofit groups and agencies, foundations, schools, universities and clubs. Official Fiesta royals may enter, too, as can businesses and individuals who just love Fiesta.

Only manufactured and mass-produced medals are allowed. No handmade medals.

Entries will be judged on design, originality and production quality. Judges do not consider how much the medal costs or if it’s given away.

Entries will not be returned. Medals will be auctioned off and the proceeds donated to a local journalism group for scholarships.

How to submit your medal

Fill out the short online form at mysa.com/fiesta2019form.

Take a color photo of your medal (no design illustrations) on a white background and email it to rguzman@express-news.net.

After you complete the online form, print it and mail it with your medal to Fiesta Medals Contest, c/o René Guzman, San Antonio Express-News, P.O. Box 2171, San Antonio, TX 78297.

You also may drop off medal entries in an envelope with the completed form at the Express-News lobby, 301 Ave. E (at Third Street), from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Deadline for entries is 5 p.m. Friday, March 22.
