It is with great pleasure and excitement that we now announce the very first winner of our #DWPickoftheYear contest
We are proud of our immensely talented community of followers. We choose to share your photos because they embody our lifestyle and mindset. They remind us to be adventurous and fun, and that if the time is right, we can do anything.
We launched #DWPickoftheDay four years ago with the simple idea that all fans who tag their Daniel Wellington photos with #danielwellington have the chance to be featured on our Instagram page. The massive response from our global community has allowed us to continuously build on this concept by introducing #DWPickoftheMonth and now, our very first #DWPickoftheYear contest.
Each month we reposted our most-liked photo to become our #DWPickoftheMonth, these photos were automatically entered to compete for the #DWPickoftheYear.
You all had the opportunity to vote for your favorite #DWPickoftheMonth from 2015 during the last two weeks in January. The outpouring of support for these photos was outstanding and beyond our expectations. We received roughly 14,000 votes and the results were pretty evenly distributed between the nominees.
It is with great pleasure and excitement that we now announce the very first winner of our #DWPickoftheYear contest.
Our very first #DWPickoftheYear winner, with 19.5% of the votes, is Julia Kivelä!
Julia, a graphic designer and photographer from Helsinki, Finland, was originally featured on our Instagram page as our #DWPickoftheMonth for May with the image above.
We would also like to give a very special honorable mention to the talented 15-year old Natalia Seth, who finished in second place with 16.8% of the votes and to Jonathan Crawley from London, who finished in third place with 14.3% of the votes.
Last, but definitely not least, congratulations to Fanny B. from France on winning a DW timepiece of her own. Fanny voted for the #DWPickoftheYear on danielwellington.com. This contest, and our page, would be nothing without our active community of followers. This is why each voter was automatically entered for a chance to win their very own Daniel Wellington watch. Thank you all for voting!
Congratulations to Julia and all of the other contestants, and a massive thank you to the entire DW community for sharing breathtaking and elegant photos with us everyday. We can’t wait to share more great photos with you, and eventually host another #DWPickoftheYear contest!
