Gorillapod Twitter Contest Winners Announced!

Posted by on October 13, 2010 at 11:00 am.

You may remember we ran a Twitter contest in the weeks leading up to the 12×12 Vancouver Photo Marathon in collaboration with Joby, creators of the very cool and versatile Gorillapods. Well, the idea was to give away five Gorillapod Originals to five lucky people who followed @jobyinc and @12x12yvr and retweeted a simple message. But due to some logistical messups and the intricate world of international shipping we didn’t actually have the Gorillapods in house on September 12th. Not good. But fortunately the pods were eventually tracked down and they arrived intact about a week later.

So, without further ado, and to prevent any further unforeseen weird shipping catastrophes, we are happy to announce the winners of the Joby / 12×12 Gorillapod Twitter Contest:

Walking away with their very own brightly coloured Gorillapod Original are, in the order they were drawn:

But wait! The keen observer will surely have noticed that in the photos above there are six pods, not five. What gives?

Joby sponsored us with a total of eight Gorillapods: Two Gorillapod Focuses with the new Ballhead X attachments and six Gorillapod Originals, one in each colour. We are giving the Focuses to the Best Series and Best Photo winners and five of the Originals to the five Twitter contest winners. The last Original will be a giveaway at Raw Talent 2010. How? Well, you’ll have to come to find out!
