Once again we have been delighted with all the fabulous entries for our bag competition and now it's time to announce the winners.
The brief is to photograph your Vida Vida bag out and about - whether it's the most beautiful, unusual or funny location it's up to you to be inspired and you certainly have been! It's been great seeing where our bags have got to (selection of entries below) - this competition really gets us in the mood to go travelling! Once more our bags have visited some amazing places, from the cockpit of an airborne private plane to the beaches of Sri Lanka. We felt more than a pang of jealously this time as some of the photos were taken in some really incredible locations!
Again we struggled to choose a winner so have had to give 2 runners up prizes as well as our main prize of a Vida Vida travel bag. In first place we finally chose this photo below by Duncan Longden. He sent us a selection of fab shots of his Vida Vida messenger bag
travelling around Asia but our favourite was the bag enjoying afternoon tea at Raffles hotel in Singapore.
The 2 runners up who won a personalised leather wallet were Chris Clatworthy and Pete Myford who both took their bags on rather unusual adventures. Chris Clatworthy (below) took his gold embossed Vida Vida leather satchel
on the Three Peaks Challenge which in his words "is a very difficult trek up and down three mountains in one exhausting walk"
. He managed to do it in under 11 hours, walking 34 miles at near 50-60º slopes through all types of terrain. Again in his words "I did it all with my trusty satchel, which coped wonderfully.”
If ever there was a deserving winner who took on a great challenge with his Vida Vida satchel it was Chris. Well done for completing the challenge and for taking some great photos of it. The other runner up was Pete Myford (below) for his selection of photos using one of our bags as a shotgun cartridge bag (for clay pigeon shooting only). Great photos capturing this innovative use of the Vida Vida mini satchel
which includes or lovely embossed personalisation too.
We are opening up the competition once again so please email us pictures of your bag on it's travels. Send your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org
