CONTEST: Create Your Own ‘Cereal Monster’ Circle Jerks Sticker

Cereal Monster art contest 2017

This year’s contest is now closed.

DISCLAIMER! This contest is NOT an officially affiliated or endorsed by General Mills, the Monster Cereals brand, Kellogg, or any other cereal brand or mascot personality. We’re just fans who love us some cereal and horror movies.

Oh yeah…it’s that time again. Time for our (mostly) annual Create Your Own Cereal Monster art contest! And, since we recently relaunched our Circle Jerks Sticker line, we thought it’d be the perfect opportunity to mix things up a bit…kinda like tossing Seth Brundle and a fly into a bootleg teleportation pod we found on ebay and hitting frappé. Or, in this case, a bag full of Madballs and a box of cereal. In any event, for this year’s competition we’re challenging you to design an original cereal monster in sticker form! Entries can be drawn by hand or digitally, but must adhere to the Rules below.


Imagine what a pre-existing cereal mascot (past or present) would look like if he/she/it suddenly mutated into a hideous creature or alien monstrosity. Then, squish that visceral variation into a tightly packed circular ball of ugly crammed with cereal bits and moldy marshmallows. That’s how Circle Jerks are born…er, basically.

This spherical sticker must be designed specifically by you and for this contest — no taking credit for other people’s work. All entries are welcome, as long as they adhere to the Circle Jerks Stickers formatting guidelines. In addition, submissions should include 50-100 words about your design including a name, cereal flavor and any distinguishing characteristics or back story.

Your submission should be submitted as JPGs or PNGs. Pencil drawings, paintings and digital artwork are all acceptable, however the final submission must be sent as a JPG or PNG file at 300 DPI.

  • Artwork must adhere to formatting guidelines (300dpi, 4″ x 4″ and circular).
  • The artwork must be original and created specifically for this contest.
  • Your submission must include a name for your new cereal monster/mascot.
  • Limit three (3) entries per contestant.
