First and foremost, we’d like to thank everyone who participated in this event. Thank you for sharing your awesome Halloween-themed visual story, voting, and promoting this event to others. We hope you had a blast! We certainly did! There’s so much creativity in the world!
Now to the important part…(drum roll)
- 1st Place: My Pet Werewolf by Amy Huxtable (187 votes) — iPad
- 2nd Place: Had A Lot Of Fun With This One by Michael Son (157 votes) — iPod Nano
- 3rd Place: At Least It Was Better Than Last Year’s… by Maycy Vu (80 votes) — iPod Shuffle
- Sweet-Tweet Sweepstakes: Michael Balistreri — iPod Nano
Are the vote counts legit? When we received reports of any strange voting activities (and we received many), we took them seriously and thoroughly investigated the situation. We’ve also reviewed every vote for evidence after the contest ended.
How did we choose the winner for Sweet-Tweet Sweepstakes? Before launching the event, three Tapastic employees picked a random number between 1-31, 1-24, and 1-60. The chosen numbers were 18, 1, and 38, which we converted to 10/18 1:38AM. We checked our tweeter account at that time and saw the tweet below.
Again, I would like to say thank you so much for participating in our first event. We definitely want to hear your feedback on the contest so that we can improve the experience in the future. Also, do let us know some other good ideas for future events…perhaps in the comments section below or send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
