Caption Contests

Thank you for participating! The Caption Contest is now closed.

Throughout the season, the LOC will be releasing funny figure skating photos on Facebook and Twitter. These pictures need captions. It’s up to figure skating fans all around the world to show off their comedic skills and think of the most interesting or funny photo captions.

Think hard! The LOC is giving away a choice of a Worlds 2016 fleece blanket or an official t-shirt to the fans with the best captions!
