WHAT: A friendly, fun Photo Challenge, celebrating the power and beauty of running, PUMA’s running watch designs, & the inspirational lifestyle, perennial cool of the Jamaican running spirit.
The “Faas” running watch Collection features modern silhouettes with excellent lap and split time measurement and memory capabilities. The Faas 200 presents a contemporary round face for men, and the Faas 250, a sleek ovoid face for women. Both Faas ranges come in an extraordinary array of “color blocked” palettes, ranging from minimalist taupes and greys to on- trend lemon yellows, optic bright whites and saturated blues and violets. The super-slim silhouette, at just 9.6 mm, is inspired by the World Record (9.58 seconds) in the iconic 100 meters. MSRP $ 60.00

WHY: Inspiring everyone to showcase this summer’s excitement around the joy of running and in celebration of global human friendship, competition and spirit. The sport of running is innately human and has been part of our collective bi-pedal history and as such, is part of our collective soul. Participants in our Photo Challenge will simply upload an image of themselves (solo or with friends), wearing any PUMA watch, celebrating running, friendship and the human spirit.
PUMA is offering a discount of 20% on all watches purchased on puma.com during the duration of this Challenge. You can also go old school, print out one of our super cool virtual watches and design and stylize it yourself.
WHO: As individuals or in groups, participants will take photos of themselves wearing watches in the location of their choice. Some participants may elect to showcase their passion for running quite literally, while others will show off their living room, favorite local landmark or watering hole. Anything goes! The only requirement is that each Contestant must appear in every uploaded photo wearing a visible PUMA watch, whether real or virtual. All photos will be uploaded to www.puma.com/reggae
A team of PUMA Time judges will select the best photographs to win prizes, including a “Gold Medal” Grand Prize trip to Jamaica to participate and/or enjoy the Reggae Marathon on December 1st, 2012. “Silver” and “Bronze Medal” prize packages comprising a range of the “best of the best” PUMA merchandise will be awarded as well. Three “Mr and Mrs Congeniality” Prizes will go to the submitter(s) of the photographs that get ‘shared’ the most on Twitter and Facebook platforms – a modern day version of the age-old popularity contest!
Judging is based on originality, enthusiasm, and excitement. We are seeking strong expressions of your passion for life, running and friendship in any way you feel it. Photographs must display a visible PUMA watch, real or “DIY paper” as provided on the site.
