If you’re a fan of OREO cookies, this is the contest for you. Maybe you’ve heard of the OREO Wonder Vault. This is where all OREO’s flavors are dreamed up and stored.

Now, you have the chance to invent the next OREO creation and see it on shelves nationwide. The Grand Prize Winner will take home $500,000 and unprecedented fan access to OREO creations.

Eligible fans will be entered for a chance to be one of three finalists who will win $25,000 each and see their idea on select retail shelves across the country in May 2018. The Grand Prize Winner will be selected via fan vote in July 2018 and win half-a-million-dollars.

A company spokesperson said regarding the contest, “Our newest limited edition flavor got us thinking – if we can create a Firework OREO cookie, what else could we create? And who better to ask than those who are already sharing their flavor and creation ideas? We’ve always loved hearing and seeing our fans’ ideas and now we’re thrilled to merge that passion and creativity with OREO innovation to come up with the future OREO Wonder Vault creations.”

Here is how to enter:

Fans in the U.S. can submit one unique creation per person per day on Instagram or Twitter by uploading a photo, video or just copy and include the hashtags #MyOreoCreation and #Contest.

The three finalists will be determined using the following criteria:

  • Taste Appeal (40 percent) – be delicious and/or evoke a feeling of joy/deliciousness.
  • Creativity (30 percent) – be a smart/creative design and have a relevant theme to inspire a 2018 OREO creation.
  • Originality (30 percent) – be unique and evoke a taste, feeling or remind you of an experience that would inspire an OREO cookie creation.
