  1. Wow! This is the first time I ever win a contest…two winning spots at once 😀

    Thank you Jacob and all the participants! The article entries are totally insightful and I have read some of them. I will read the rest for sure and spread my link love soon

    Congratulation to the winners 😉

    A u d e e’s last blog post..Feed Flare Grand Opening Contest!

  2. Wow, that’s very cool! I’m envious of PJ’s prize but I’m certainly happy with mine, and I know exactly what to do with it 🙂

    Congrats to everyone, and thanks very much to Jacob for holding the contest (and being a reader on our blog, too!)

    James Chartrand – Men with Pens’s last blog post..The Classic Entrepreneur: Exploring the Brighter Side

  3. OMG! I won, first online winning, hehe. Although I did not win the fender guitar, my prize sure was one of the prizes I wanted.

    Anyways congrats everyone, thanks for the great articles and the link love, and to Jacob of course!

    I hope there’d be more graphic design group writing contest like this one, like say next week? 😀

    John Breo’s last blog post..How to create Vector Wings

  4. Oh my, I can’t believe that I won the guitar! I used to play guitar years ago, and I still dabble with the saxophone and keyboard, and write songs…

    I’m based in the UK, so the postage costs might be prohibitive; if that is the case I may decide to hold a contest on my own blogs for the guitar.

    Thanks, Jacob for holding this splendid extravaganza. Thanks to Mohd Rafie too.

    PJ’s last blog post..Bernadot Studios

  5. Just read the original post and realised that Mohd Rafie appears to be also based in the UK, and had offered free worldwide postage for the prize. How generous was that?!

  6. Congratualtions to all winners and of course the generous sponsors 🙂 and good luck to everyone for the next contest that will be held soon.
    If anyone has any problems with their sponsors or contacting them, please let me know.

  7. Thanks, I am really excited to receive my GO Media Vector Pack and iStock Credits!

  8. Awesome, I won the memory card reader! I could actually make good use of that. 🙂 Thanks for putting this whole thing together, Jacob. And did I hear “another contest”? I can’t wait!

    LearningNerd’s last blog post..LearningNerd’s Site Redesign and Two Design Contests

  9. Awesome! Vijay, drop me an e-mail anytime for the 1 month banner on FreelanceFolder (I couldn’t find a way to contact you through Contest Radar) Cheers 🙂
