Firstly, thank you to the many customers who have sent us some wonderful photographs of the exciting adventures that they get up to with a little bit of help from their Vida Vida bags. It has been great fun looking though the entries which have not only taken us around the world, but also to a few rather unique and often unseen places.
It is clear that our customers not only love their Vida Vida bags, but, just like myself and Matt, you love to travel and get off the beaten track.
We did rather struggle in choosing an outright winner, but we think you will agree with our final choice! We decided to add two runner-up prizes just because we felt they each deserved something in recognition for their efforts.
Before you see the winning pictures below (no peeping) and a selection of the other entries, do remember you can continue to send us your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org as the competition is ongoing and we will be picking another winner or two sometime towards the start of the summer – just in time for the holidays. More details will appear on our blog soon.
So, onto the top three entrants…
In first place, we had to give it to Ian Gray who has really taken his use of his Grande Leather Satchel to the next level with this eggcellent set of photographs from the hatchery he works at in Scotland. Ian, we were thrilled to see your use of the bag, the attention to our logo and the strategically placed protection from bird poo!
Ian's prize of our top of the line leather travel bag is on it’s way to you with plenty of room inside to store the adult chickens or a week or two’s worth of clothing if you choose to take it travelling with you this summer.
To everyone else, please get ready for more awful puns about chicks and eggs over the Easter period!
Next are the two runners up, who have each won one of our handmade leather wallets embossed with the initials or message of their choosing.
Paul Wingfield managed to capture this fantastically evocative shot of his leather satchel on stage at none other than London’s Royal Opera House (below). He nabbed this during rehearsals where he is the conductor. The lighting and the composition with the red velvet seating worked really well.
The other runner up comes from the other side of the World and was sent one of our bags as a gift by her sisters (did you know we ship worldwide). Ash Hanson, from Raglan in New Zealand, sent us the two images below of her casually “posing” by the seafront and a waterfall. A lovely set of photographs in an amazing setting, we are all “Well Jel” (if you don’t know what that means, then look it up like we had to)! http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Well+Jel
Thanks to everyone who took the time to take some pictures and send them in. Please keep on doing so as we will pick another winner later in the year. Below are a few of the entries we really liked too, but they were pipped to the post!
