Int'l BC Day Contest 2017: the winners!

The votes have been cast, and the votes have been counted... I have the honor of announcing the winners of this year's International BookCrossing Contest! Make sure you're sitting down, because this is going to get exciting.

First of all, the 3rd prize is for a lovely and striking drawing by Lesenslust. We love the lettering that's cleverly hidden in the eyelashes! Great job!

The 2nd place is for Krissa33 and her colourful picture of me on a stack of books! The books themselves are all about me, too... this one almost made me blush. Well done again, Krissa!

And finally, the 1st prize goes to a brilliant drawing of a reader under a book tree, made by Necoconeco, the daughter of Hippolein. What lovely colors! Bravissima!

Congratulations, all three of you, you can be proud of this!

There's some great entries this year and I'm happy to say that again, just like in previous years, every entry that you see here got votes. All of these were some people's favorites!
If you see something you love, and you want to use it in the Bookplate Creator, just rightclick on the image to save it to your computer.

As we speak, our Store Manager is working hard at making stickers and bookplates available with this year's winning masterpiece. You can expect to see them in the Store soon, and they will be available for purchase all through the month of March. And all three prize winners can look forward to a prize package full of BookCrossing surprizes.

Thank you all for participating and for voting. Let's make this another BookCrossing Day to remember!

Necoconeco's entry was my own favourite, a very deserved first place!

Too bad my own entry didn't make it, maybe I'll enter it again next year. Or maybe I'll take a hint and won't ;)

Congrats to the winners. I think I'll buy the official ones and make custom bookplates out of some others.

It was very hard but I have something with trees.
Congratulations to all the entries, they where amazing.
Profile Image
Me too. I so love trees & books. The drawing was perfectly dreamy and sweet. I'd be happy to sit under that tree and read a beautiful book.

and big congatulations to the winners!
I love the eye, this was my favorit ;-)

I look forward to buying the labels when they come to the store

to all. I have to say all of the entries were amazing, and I don't remember which one I voted for because I was torn between so many of them. Anyhow, great job to all of those who have the courage to enter.

And we're glad you like them, dear winners! They are well deserved.

So all three winners have their prizes as well as their Winner's Wings... and it looks like we're going to have a great BookCrossing Day 2017. Seems we're all set. Make it a day to remember, and have fun! Oh, and if you get any BookCrossing Day catches... please post about it. We don't want to miss out!

I tried to resist buying the BookCrossing Day 2017 bookplates but I couldn't! They're just so lovely :)
Profile Image
They're just so lovely :)

I know, right? They really are.

And now I get to have wings for a month! I enjoy having the little wings next to my name so much I might just have to keep them there ;)

Arrived!

My BookCrossing Day 2017 bookplates are here and they are even nicer than expected! I really recommend them :)

Surely a newsletter should be sent to all bookcrossers about International Bookcrossing Day? I do come on here quite often but not as much as I did, and this nearly passed me by. It's a shame that effort is being put into artwork that only visitors to the forum know about. Or perhaps there has been a newsletter and it's gone in my junkbox, though I do get release alerts etc no problem. I'm sure that noone wants to be bombarded with too many emails but there haven't been any as far as I know in a long time. I will try to release at least one book tomorrow...

Are you sure you want to delete this item? It cannot be undone.
