Our photo contest finished, last votes were counted and now I have a pleasant duty to announce the winner.
Starting at total of 57 wine related pictures received, you were casting your own vote for the best six pictures, chosen for the finale.
We were considering the following, when judging entries:
- The technical quality of the picture (colors, focus, sharpness)
- The unique idea
- The unique surroundings
- The best and funniest holiday atmosphere
From November 28th, when the final six pictures were posted on my blog, till Sunday, December 2nd at 8:00 PM, you all had a chance to vote for your favorite one, and you did!
As of Sunday evening, my blog has received a total of 113 votes! 52 of those votes came in for a picture F – stunning 46.2% of total votes. An author of this lovely picture, and the winner of Vera Wine Club’s photo contest: “Sip in style this Holiday season” is Mr. Gregory Tousignant from Connecticut.
Please accept my sincere congratulations!!!
The photo contest was sponsored by the one and only Wine Enthusiast Magazine – and the winner will receive the Wine Enthusiast pack of 12 U Tumblers Party pack, Cabernet/Merlot Wine Glasses, valued at $77.70.
Now we know that Gregory will definitely Sip in Style this Christmas!!! I will ship the price his way as soon as I receive it from our sponsor.
The closest runner up was the picture C of Mr. Jason Mangini. His picture received 35 votes which makes for 30.97% of total votes. Although I didn’t announce another price at the beginning, I have decided to dig in, and send him a Vera Wine Club’s own price for the second place. Jason will receive a wine decanter with the original wine decanter brush from me.
Thank you all very much for participating in our fun holiday contest. If you sent your picture, or just submitted vote for someone, I really appreciate it. Without you the contest wouldn’t be so much fun! I will be happy to come up with another contest in the future again!
