Thanks to all the YugaTech Contest Entries!
Just an update to everyone who joined our recent YugaTech Photo Contest. I know all of you are excited to know who won the MSI Wind U123 so here’s an update and some highlights.
There were so many entries, in the hundreds — I think it’s over 1,000 photo submissions all in all. All week long, I had to go thru each photo, download a copy and pick my early favorites.
I have to say I had a blast checking out all the photo submissions. People making t-shirt designs, body tattoos, huge tarps, projectors and going to huge events like the Hot Air Balloon, Century Tuna SuperBod Marathon and all the big malls, churches, amusement parks, political rallies, festivals. I can’t give hints right now but all I can say is wow!
My Top 5 Photos are still not final as there are so many entries to choose from. If I can’t still narrow them down, I might just give all the good submissions some sort of prizes too (that’s should pressure me to pick my top 5). I’ll send my finalist pick to @tjmanotoc who agreed to be one of our judges for choosing the grand prize winner.
I also have the winners for the Tweet, Google Image and Blog segments. Will have to wait for the other winners so I can announce them all at once. I haven’t finished tallying the Facebook “Likes” though.
Hopefully, I’ll have the complete set of winners and grand prize winners by early next week (as early as Monday, I hope) so stay tuned!
Important: I’ve uploaded all the photo submissions in the YugaTech Gallery. I might have missed some entries so please check if your submissions are there.
I know, I’m excited too! Can’t wait to give away this MSI Wind U123 (Just tried it now and it’s got a 9-cell battery that can do 8.5 hours!). I saw some pretty daring and creative stuff. They ought to get some special prizes too.
