BookCrossing Day Contest, 2nd edition. The winners are known!
We've had a total of almost a 1000 valid votes this year. Thank you all!
This year, every participating label received more than 25 votes; that means that there was no label that wasn't some people's avourite. That's a very nice thought for all of you who submitted a label.
Now of course you'll want to know which label won. You can see it on the voting page, right here: http://www.bookcrossing.com/bcdayvote
The third prize is for Azuki, who drew the lovely 'Follow the Yellow Book Road' label. Great work!
The second prize goes to ApoloniaX, who created the wonderful label with the newspaper-reading cat. We love it!
And the winner is:
(drum roll, of course)
Label 9, two children reading a decorated book in (mostly) black and white, by the talented bookczuk!
Congratulations! We love this design and we're looking forward to seeing the labels in the Supply Store very soon. Bookczuk will receive a free pack of 25 labels in the language of her choice, and the matching round International BookCrossing Day stickers, and other supplies to make up a nice BookCrossing Day release kit.
Her design will appear in the Store within a couple of days.
ApoloniaX gets three months of Wings on the house! And Azuki gets a month.
The designs that were in the contest can be used to make your own International BookCrossing Day Labels, or regular BookCrossing Bookplates, in our Bookplate Creator; if you want to do so (and why wouldn't you? There are some great ones!) click on the image first to enlarge it before you save it; you'll get a bigger file and a better result.
Oh, and please do us a favour, and do not use these designs for home-printed labels (unless you're the artist). Thank you.
Finally: make sure you order your International BookCrossing Day labels and stickers before April 1st! We need to make sure that you'll get them in time, and for that reason, they will disappear from the Store on that day.
Edited to add: It's hard to see, but I did put in BookCrossing tag lines, in several languages, among the curls and details of the book cover design.

Thanks for mentioning that, I hadn't seen that yet, but they are clearly visible in the bigger version of the picture http://images.bookcrossing.com/---/9.png
I thought they were all wonderful!
I loved joining the competition and to see all the entries. They are great!
Wow I just reread the first message and saw, at least 25 votes for all the participants, we are all winners :-).
(It would be nice to be able to watch last years entries as well, is it possible to put them on another page, or maybe at the bottom of this one?)
And how do we access the others to create our own?That's pretty much explained in the first posting: you can download them from the page where the winners are shown.
