Warning: contains Christmas chat in November 

Week 5 blues gotten you down? Are you a fan of public embarrassment and the sights of Cambridge? Enter The Tab’s NEW Elf on the Shelf contest. 

You’ve heard of Elf on the Shelf, now get ready for…Snowman in the Cam, Santa at the Granta and Scrooge counting in the fountain.

Now that the clocks have gone back that extra hour, we’re looking for Cantabs to embrace the Bridgemas spirit in Cambridge’s most iconic locations (if you dare). So its time to whip out those photography skills, rhyming dictionaries and reindeer/Santa/elf costumes. 

Whether you enter solo or as a group, we want your festive and cleverly rhymed shots!

🤶 What we want from you: 🎅

A landscape photograph of you in a creative Cambridge location. No photoshopping allowed.

Send it to us with a rhyming or punny description at [email protected] by Sunday 21st of November.

🎄What does the winner get? 🎄

Aside from obtaining infamy, we’ll change our cover image on Facebook to your festive creation for a whole month between November 25th and December 25th. That’s 20,000 admirers of your festive spirit.
