iPhone Contest: announcing the winners!

October 15, 2007


First off, we’d like to express our deepest gratitude to all the contestants in the “why is FreshBooks better than an iPhone?” contest. We received some really great entries, and it’s obvious a whole lot of effort went into these creations! A job well done by all.

Unfortunately we only have one iPhone to give away. It was definitely a tight vote here at the office, but after every single staff member had their say and submitted their individual voting card, here’s how things turned out.

Our grand prize winner!

The comedy stylings of Boomy the bunny-like creature won the hearts and minds of our staff members, making heymonn the winner of a brand new iPhone! Congratulations and well done — in doing the best job of proving the iPhone is worthless, you earned yourself one! Alanis would be proud.

But wait, there’s more…

Hold on, what? More prizes? That wasn’t in the rules!

Well, all the efforts put in by the entrants put us into a giving mood today. 🙂

Second and third prize!

Putting in a strong showing in second place was caj531 with his very clever parody of a recent UPS ad campaign. He’ll be retiring to his nerdery and invoicing his clients using his six free months of FreshBooks service!

And coming in third place was BradyBoyShaw, whose animation skills were second-to-none in this contest… quite literally, since it was the sole animated entry! He will find himself rewarded with three free months of FreshBooks service.

Alright… prizes for everybody!

What the heck, let’s go crazy! We’ll also be sending a spiffy FreshBooks t-shirt to every one of you who submitted an entry, from the grand prize winner right on down. We’ll be getting in touch to get shirt sizes and shipping addresses — expect to hear from us in the next day or two.

For those of you who missed out on this contest, be sure to check out all the entries for your enjoyment. And don’t forget, we’re still looking for somebody to send to the SEED conference, too! If you’d like to go, check out the contest details on our blog and get your entries in.

Merci beaucoup!

Thanks again, everybody; this contest was a lot of fun, and I hope you all enjoyed yourselves as much as Sunir and I did. Keep an eye on those YouTube accounts, I’ll try to get a message to everybody tomorrow. Cheers!
