We came across this article on CNN Travel and just had to share!

Contestants are awarded in five categories: Best Male, Best Female, Best Group, Nongshim's People's Choice, and Tim Horton's Most Creative. (Names of the winners were not released.) The winner for each category gets CAD$2,000 in addition to free hot springs passes.
The contest has been around since 2011, steadily gaining popularity over the years as the outlandish images began to get shared globally. This year's contest received 288 entries -- more than double what it got in 2011 -- according to management. "We like to think that this contest will bring some joy to viewers around the world -- even if just for a few moments," says Andrew Umbrich, owner and operator of Takhini Hot Pools.
