#MatteosDream Photo Contest

The theme of 125th Annual Tournament of Roses Parade is Dreams Come True. From Fighting Hunger to the Reading Action program, we know the power of Lions and Leos is our ability to pull together our resources and make dreams come true every day.

Now we’re challenging you and your club to show us how you make dreams come true and rally around the #RoseParade theme in our first ever Social Media Photo Contest!

Last week, we shared the story behind our float entry in the 125th Annual Tournament of Roses Parade. #MatteosDream is just one of the thousands of projects Lions and Leos have sponsored to help people across the world. We want to see how YOUR Lions project makes dreams come true, and we’ll make it worth your while with a prize!

How do you enter?

Submit an interesting photo on Facebook or Instagram of how your club makes dreams come true. Do not include a description or caption. (OFFICIAL RULES BELOW.) Pictures must show at least one Lion or Leo in action, or your entire club working on a project.

Only one photo submission per Lion, Leo and Club will be accepted. Any additional photos submitted after the initial entry will not be considered.

Must be an active Lion or Leo member to participate. Void where prohibited. Contest will run until January 1, 2014. Winners will be selected by our social media team and contacted for an address to have pins mailed to them. Winners will be announced publicly by January 7, 2014.

Below are the rules and instructions for how to enter each contest.


Be on the lookout for a post announcing the start of the contest. Photos must be submitted within the comments section of that thread.
