Uprinting contest results
First of all, we apologise for the delay in the announcement of the winners of the Uprinting contest - it took us longer than expected to sort the winners out! Anyway, without further delay, here are the chosen images (and the accompanying tips), which will win a pack of 100 Uprinting postcards each:
"There are so many different postcards around the world – touristic and not so. Being in postcrossing for more than a year I often run into people that want something unique, something no one has. I was looking for such card and for such place for long now. Once my friend took me on a trip and said he is going to show me the tunnel I am gonna fall in love with. I couldn’t imagine that just 2 hours away from Lviv, Ukraine (my home town) I will see the secret gem I was looking everywhere for. I have traveled to almost all continents and this place in Klevan, Rivne, Ukraine is still the magic place I love to come back to and take my friends to. I took my German friend there and she called the tunnel – “Gateway to Narnia”. The tunnel is “officially” called – “The tunnel of Love” and I have seen it featured in 1 travel magazine, but nowhere else. I think this magic place should be seen at least on a postcard by many people. Even if you don’t have the chance to visit it, looking at the card is gonna take you to a fairytale."
And here is her photo:
"This place is just magical. It's a small village in the centre of portugal, and there are only 6 inhabitants in it. The fact that you are able to see these 6 inhabitants and COUNT them on your way from the road to the mountain (to do a bit of mountain climbing) just makes it even more amazing. I took this photo of a recently modernised house (the windows are in aluminium instead of wood) not only because it's one of the 10 only houses in the village but also because it's abandoned. The mixture between the rock house, the mountain and the fog is just magical. Magical is the word. I would love to make this photo a postcard, not just because of the picture but also because i would think it would be an homage to this kind of villages, abandoned, lost, and yet so incredible."
"Last year I discovered a wonderful little woodland area near to where I live. In April the ground was covered in bluebells and looked magical, like something out of a fairytale. My area is mostly very urban so little green spots like that are a real treat and great for relaxing."
Congratulations to our three winners and a big thank you to all the other participants - we had a lot of fun perusing your entries! And of course, our gratitude to Uprinting, who kindly sponsored this contest.
