Beginning today, Dunkin' Donuts' "Top of the WorlDD" Photo and Video Contest gives its Facebook fans the chance to start 2013 "at the top" by having their image broadcast high over the Crossroads of the World in Times Square on its most famous night, New Year's Eve. Fans can submit their celebratory photos and/or videos wishing their loved ones a happy New Year to a special tab on the brand's Facebook page. One photo and one video submission will each win the grand prize of a pair of JetBlue tickets. Ten first prize photo and 10 first prize video submission winners (20 total) will each receive a $50 Dunkin' Donuts Card. Dunkin' Donuts will select at least one video and one photo to be shown on the Dunkin' Donuts digital billboard atop Times Square on New Year's Eve and into New Year's Day, along with a special series of messages from Dunkin' Donuts created for the billboard to help keep revelers running as they welcome 2013.

As fans count down the days through the holiday season, the "Dunkin' K-Cup ® packs K-ountDDown" offers fans a chance to enter to win a daily prize pack, while enjoying tips related to home brewing and holiday entertaining. The daily prize pack includes several items to keep them running on Dunkin' at home, or while on-the-go, including a Keurig ® K-Cup ® brewer, a six month supply of Dunkin' Donuts K-Cup ® packs and a $20 Dunkin' Donuts Card.  And, to help cover one of the biggest home-related bills facing people after the holidays , at the end of the promotion, five grand prize winners will receive $2,500 they can put towards their home or rent payment in 2013.

According to John Costello, Dunkin' Brands Chief Global Marketing and Innovation Officer, "This has been an exciting year for Dunkin' Donuts, and as 2012 winds down, it was important to us to find a fun and meaningful way to show appreciation for our Facebook community and the millions of loyal fans who make us part of their daily lives. With our new 'Top of the WorlDD' Photo and Video Contest and the 'Dunkin' K-Cup ® packs K-ountDDown,' we look forward to rewarding our supporters throughout December with fantastic prizes, with the grand finale that puts our passionate fans in the spotlight atop Times Square on New Year's Eve."

Dunkin' Donuts is the place to help keep busy, on-the-go people running all throughout December. Dunkin' Donuts' holiday lineup features three flavored hot or iced coffee and lattes, including new White Chocolate as well as classic Peppermint Mocha and Gingerbread. Dunkin' Donuts' Peppermint Mocha packaged coffee is available for a limited time only in an 8-oz. size at participating restaurants. Mint Hot Chocolate, available year-round at participating Dunkin' Donuts restaurants, puts a spin on the classic Hot Chocolate, combining the warmth of rich hot chocolate with a cool, invigorating flavor.
