As promised and as written in the contest mechanics, today - January 3, 2010, we're announcing the winner of TPGB1 (TechPinas Gadget Bonanza # 1: BlackBerry Curve 3G Giveaway).
But before we do that, TP Team, Virtusio and RIM would like to once again thank everyone who joined our contest. Thank you so much! We received a lot of amazing entries and if we could just give more than one prize, we'd do it. But the thing is, we can only choose one winner for this bonanza. Nonetheless, we here in TP promise to do our best to bring you more contests and more gadgets this year. So I hope you continue to visit TechPinas regularly and be on the look out for TPGB2! If you weren't chosen as winner of TPGB1, don't get disheartened because there are really more gadgets to come. Muli, maraming maraming salamat!
Now, without further ado, the winner of TPGB1 : BlackBerry Curve 3G Giveaway is...
Melanie Cortez from Novaliches, Quezon City
You can check out Melanie's winning contest entry via this post:
We chose her entry because;
1. It's highly creative in the sense that you can clearly see the effort put into creating it. And more often than not, effort is what makes creativity possible.
2. It's high impact because she actually enumerated the reasons why she and her family badly want the BlackBerry and even included images for each reason. We found her reasons for wanting the BB very arresting.
Congratulations, Melanie! TP will get in touch with you via email on when and how you can claim your prize!
Happy New Year, everyone! Here's to more TPGBs this year!
