Cigar Aficionado's 30th Anniversary Superfan Contest

This Fall, Cigar Aficionado will celebrate its 30th birthday. To honor the occasion, we'll be releasing a special 30th Anniversary issue coming in early November. But it wouldn't be a true celebration of this magazine's success if we didn't give our biggest fans and dedicated readers the appreciation and spotlight they deserve. 

We’re pleased to offer a unique opportunity for cigar aficionados to express their fandom. We’ll be running a contest over the next several weeks where we'll give readers the opportunity to showcase their love for Cigar Aficionado by sharing your stories, experiences and photos for a chance to be included in our 30th Anniversary issue and even win a pair of tickets to our Big Smoke events.

What To Submit

You might be wondering what exactly you can submit to enter this contest, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

Simply put, we’re looking for the biggest Cigar Aficionado superfans. Maybe you have every issue, perhaps you’ve been to many of our Big Smoke events or you might just have a special connection to the magazine. We want you, the reader, to show us your fandom in a way you feel captures it the most.

Readers are welcome to submit photos and share their stories.

How to Enter

To enter, please send an email to with the subject line "CA 30th Anniversary Superfan Contest."

Make sure your submission (photos and/or stories) is included in your initial email. 

Please be sure to include your full name as well.

Prizes / Winners

The selected finalists will be included in the print edition of our 30th Anniversary issue. There is no set number on how many finalists will be selected.

There will also be an overall winner selected by the Cigar Aficionado panel of editors.

The winner will be included in the issue and they will win two tickets to their choice of either Big Smoke Las Vegas in November or Big Smoke Meets WhiskyFest in Florida in May.
