Girls & Football SA - Winners Announced!

shoutOut on 10/9/12 by travis.lyle1 in wordUp

Ladies and gents across the wide wide Interweb, the day has finally come when we can announce the winners of our Girls & Football SA ‘Fiercely Female & Awesome’ contest! 

This has been a really great contest from the point of view of variety – we received no less than 62 designs from every corner of the globe, with every designer putting their heart and soul into creations that in some way communicated the power of girls and women.

For us here at Springleap here in South Africa, it’s been a particularly important contest, as we’ve just celebrated Women’s Day and Women’s Month, in honour of the 1956 march where 20,000 women of all walks of life marched to the Union Buildings in Pretoria to demand an end to pass laws.

Taking inspiration from this iconic moment in South Africa’s history, the Girls & Football SA contest has shown just how much our community of designers care about these issues – congratulations to all entrants for a great showing of talent!

OK – enough with the preamble – so who won? The envelope, please….

In first place: with his fantastic 'Reaching Stars' design, and taking $2000 home, it's one of our most frequent contest participants, the talented kharmazero!

Second place, and $400, goes to the bold style of 'Girl Power 2' by the ever-eager and highly skilled CHUCKY.

And in third place, taking $300, with a design brimming with female energy, it's 'The Dream 2' by hellojune.

A warm round of congratulations for our three designers, and a big thank you to all who entered and voted in this contest - THANK YOU!
