Winners of the 'One Picture from My Photo Album' Contest... Announced!

To be frank, I was a bit wary when I had taken this on. A photo album contest as a giveaway? Would this work?

30 entries, a warm bundle of wishes and a fortune of support later... today, I am a happy blogger. And proud to see that all it took was a few bloggers from all around the world to banish away all my fears and make this contest what it was - A fun venture and a delightful success!

A heartfelt Thank You to everyone who dug in their albums and shared their pictures with all of us and to everyone who stood by with their blessings, wishes and support. Everything meant a lot to me and I hope to have all of it again, the next time we have another contest here.

Who is the Winner?

It was fun to have a sneak peak in your photo albums and live your cherished moments with all of you but at the same time, it was also very difficult for us since we knew we had to choose only one from amongst so many entries - all giving a tough time to each other in the competition.

But, finally... after a lot of thinking over and considerations and re considerations,

WE have with us a winner today and an additional set of runners-up list as well!

*A huge round of applause please*

The Grand Voucher of ‘One Photo from my Picture Album Contest’ goes to...

Rajlakshmi from Destiny's Child! for her entry titled,



Rajlakshmi wins for herself one Rs. 6000 GiftBig's E-Giftcard
(prize courtesy: CupoNation)

What the judges say –
"Though most of the entries were very appealing, what tipped Rajlakshmi's to the top were the natural emotions her photo succeeded in capturing. The write-up offered a beautiful complement, further evoking the essence of those playful moments in an innocently nostalgic yet a naughty way."

And, an applause for the runners-up as well, both of them receive goodies from My Yatra Diary...:

Stir your soul: Freeze Frame The Happiness... (Wins a Rs. 500 Giftcard)

Ranjith, A Light Hearted Talk: A Photo (Wins a surprise goodie bag)

Congratulations to all the winners and Thank You once again, EVERYONE for your participation and motivation. Thank you, CupoNation for this wonderful collaboration opportunity cum shopping giveaway.

Finally... Those who could not make it to the winning list, we request you to please not feel disappointed. Remember the saying,

Winning isn't everything, but the will to win is everything.
~ Vince Lombardi

There is only one winner this time but we promise to come up with more prizes the next time around. For now though, all we can give you is a BIG thank you and a warm smile... hoping that makes for some consolation. :-)
