The final of the second annual Jägermeister Meister Hunter Comp takes place today.
Following a tour of the country the finalists gathered in London yesterday for a two day extravaganza of a final. The winner will take away £3,000, become a member of the brand’s exclusive Hubertus Circle, and will enjoy a bespoke PR programme to raise their profile. £1,000 and £500 will also be awarded to the second and third place winners respectively.
With such a great prize it is no surprise that a series of challenges lie in wait for the final 6 competitors. Unfortunately we can’t reveal what these challenges will be (that would spoil all the fun after all) but we can tell you it will culminate on Tuesday 5th November at Liquorette.
You are invited to come down and cheer the competitors on, the final will kick off at 7pm.
