M&T Bank, the official bank of the Buffalo Bills and Baltimore Ravens, is asking fans of the teams to show off their team magnets in a new contest that features game tickets as top prizes. Each year, M&T distributes thousands of free Buffalo Bills and Baltimore Ravens team magnets free to fans through its Buffalo and Baltimore area branches.
To add to the excitement of the new football season, M&T Bank is inviting fans to get creative and take a picture of their Ravens or Bills magnets in an unusual setting or location. The possibilities are endless—it could be on the back of a fan’s motorcycle, RV, boat, backpack or in front of a rival’s stadium!
Magnets are available free (while supplies last) in Buffalo and Baltimore area-branches. Fans can also print out an image of a magnet at http://www.mtb.com/photocontest and use it for their photo. From now until Oct. 31, fans can e-mail or send in their photos of their magnets to M&T Bank. A panel of judges will review the submissions, and three winners will be announced in both Buffalo and Baltimore.
Winners will be announced around November 15. The most creative photo in each market will be awarded a pair of tickets to a Bills or Ravens home game. The second prize winner will receive an autographed Bills or Ravens football. Third prize will receive a Bills or Ravens tailgate cooler.
Here’s how fans can enter to enter:
