So, the long wait is over! We have been looking through all our competition entries today in the Koo office and after much discussion, we have finally decided on a winner.
We took the 5 pictures which had received the most likes (1 per person), to become the short list that the Koo staff were to pick a winner from (with one addition late entry which we particularly liked but did not have as many likes).
To decide our winner, we looked at the over-all picture; was it a nice picture to look at, was the composition good, was it in focus and a good quality snap, and finally, but most importantly, was it festive! We had 3 pictures which emerged as the favorites, and it was very very tight with the number of votes!!! All of our finalists will receive a Koo-Bikes t-shirt because we are that nice!
So, we are please to announce our competition winner of the GoPro camera is Richard Clark, with his picture of a rider getting super low in the snow! Well done! A great photo ticking all the boxes…
A big thank you to all that entered and spent the time to get as many people as possible to like your pictures. There were a lot of great entries, many of which unfortunately didn’t get enough likes to reach the finals. Here are the pictures which made it to the final vote, with a few quick reasons why it was one of our favourites. Make sure to keep checking back for more great competitions in 2012!
Picture 1 – Bob Williams – A great overall photo. Good composition, really capturing the riders style and surroundings on the winters afternoon.
Picture 2 – Peter Warner – Props to the rider in this one, busting out some big moves in Santa gear. This definitely gets the wow factor vote, and Peter was perfectly placed to take a great photo.
Picture 3 – Dan Foskett – Big gaps always look good, especially with a slick multi-shot! Good skills from photographer and rider!
Picture 4 – Richard Clark – A really nice photo with good composition captured at just the right time. A great quality photo with some awesome riding, and a dusting of festive snow to top it all off! top notch!
Picture 5 – Alistair Cope – This was our late entry, but despite the lack of ‘likes’ we felt it deserved a chance to win over the votes of Koo staff. It doesn’t get more festive than this, and can be appreciated by all, whether you ride or not. Theres even a cheeky Santa addition in the background to get us in the Christmas mood!
Picture 6 – Chris Hopkins – going BIG, in snow, we love it, with extra style points for the goggles!
