Verbatim’s Christmas Competition

By Nick East

December 11, 2020

It’s time to dust off your baubles, grab your tinsel and get your creative Santa hat on. Here at Verbatim, for one week only, we’re on a mission to find the best #FestiveDesk! With so many of us working at home right now and celebrating Christmas parties ‘al desko’ on Zoom, we thought adding a little bit of sparkle to your workplace, wherever it might be, would be a great way to spread a bit of festive comfort and joy.

How do I enter?

Just hop over to one of our Social Media channels at Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn.

To enter you simply need to like one of our competition posts – like the one below – and then upload a picture of your very own #festivedesk – with or without you sat in it – into the comment section below the post.

We will be able to see all of your amazing efforts and will be choosing a winner in the run up to Xmas on December 18th 2020. 

Win a festive hamper!

The best #festivedesk will win a hamper including a bottle of fizz and some other festive treats. Good luck!
