As our main contribution to Jamaica50, My-Island-Jamaica.com launched a unique Jamaica50 Article contest.
And it was a bomb!
We had some remarkable articles!
Our esteemed judges narrowed it down to the TOP 10 and then we opened the voting segment to the public.
Well the voters spoke and here now are...
Our Prized Winners:
again Janae, Pheonia and Sharon!
Very, very, very well done!
But take at look at these below, THE TOTAL TOP 10! The others are equally lovely (or in the minds of some, even better, just
that they didn't amass the number or facebook votes)
FULL TOP TEN
- I Remember Jamaica by David (Texas, USA)
- Fond Memories of Jamaica by James (WA, USA)
- I'm Jamaican Too by Alison (PA, USA)
- Jamaica - My Happy Place by Sharon (Canada)
- My Jamaica by Carlene (Portmore, Jamaica)
- Jamaica Land I Love by Janae (Trelawny,Jamaica)
- Aye Mi Jamaica Gal by Pheonia Bailey (London, UK)
- Jamaica Independence At Last by Carlene (Portmore, Jamaica)
- Jamaica My Country by Christine (FL, USA)
- Christmas In Jamaica (Child's Perspective) by Jacqueline (Haarlem, Netherlands)
Georgeous don't they?
Of course! It was a real pity we had to narrow it down to just 3 :-(
I tell you they were all great!
Here is the COMPLETE LIST OF ENTRIES!
Such love and passion for Jamaica!
All lovely, aren't they?
I also promised a 'Non-Best' award but happy to say, they were all good, I seriously couldn't find any such 'Non-Best' so I decided to award the prize; that's a complimentary copy of the "Jamaica Insider Guide" to VICENTE MONTEMAYOR, for the spanish entry "LLOVIENDO EN JAMAICA!"
It was different and showed the versatility, creativity and also displayed passion for Jamaica.
A very special thanks to our esteemed Judges
Thanks to all those who participated. All in all it was a remarkable event.
