Pixelist Instagram Photography Contest - Winners


Hi, everyone! Our Instagram photography contest in partnership with Pixelist has come to an end. We are all very excited because we got tons of great entries to the contest! The folks at Pixelist were thrilled to see so many great images being submitted. It was really hard to pick the winners, but it had to be done.

This contest wouldn't be possible without the amazing work done by the artists at Pixelist. Read more about the work at Pixelist (http://www.pixeli.st):

Pixelist came from a love of all things custom and creative.
We spent years designing our own clothes, shoes, furniture, and art and hunting for the best craftspeople to bring them to life. So we were naturally attracted to the idea of using Instagram to revive commissioned painting.

So enough with the chit-chat and let's move forward and actually announce the winners! But there's a huge surprise we didn't announce before. Originally the 3rd place would win 30% off in any purchase at Pixelist. But the Pixelist team was super kind and will now give the 3rd place a 12x12" oil painting! So all winners get paintings! Cool, right? So here are the winners:

1st place - 20x20" oil painting

2nd place - 15x15" oil painting

3rd place - 12x12" oil painting

Congratulations to all 3! We'll contact you guys to get things going as soon as possible. Also, we're glad to all of those who were interested enough to take their time to submit pictures. It was a privilege to check your images, because we're sure that you submitted those important to you, those you'd hang on your walls.
