Folksy Blog Badge Competition winners

Firstly, thanks to everyone who entered the Fabulous Folksy Blog Badge Competition. We ended up with a Flickr pool full of great badges and it was a very, very close decision. But without further ado…

The winners

The four winners, who all win free listings for a year, are Aleximo, Oddsox, Ruffle Media and Sarah Waterhouse Textiles with the following entries:

The runners-up

The four runners-up who win a set of 50 business cards or 100 MiniCards from MOO are Emily Pickle, Incy Wincy Stitches, Jamball and Leanne Woods Designs with the following entries:

Congratulations to all of you! We’ve notified the winners and just want to say commiserations to those who entered and didn’t win. The Folksy Team judged it in the style of Eurovision, by choosing their top 10 badges (which really spread the votes out) and there wasn’t a nil points among them, which just goes to show how good they all were.

We’ll be adding the winning badges to the Folksy blog badge gallery as soon as we can so that you can choose one for your blog or website.

More about MOO

If you don’t know about MOO who kindly gave us these runners-up prizes, they are a great British company who help people to print amazing cards, business cards, stickers and other paper-based items. They really are fantastic and lots of Folksters find their cards are just right for promoting their shops and handing out with their lovely handmade goods. Check out the MOO website to see what they can do for you.

Thanks for the prizes, MOO!
