Official announcement of contest winners
We are proud to announce the grand winners and finalists of our 2013 International Bento Contest!
The Grand Winners
These grand winners were picked from 349 entries from 37 different countries, an amount beyond our expectations. (We expected a maximum of 300 participants.)
Yunita, the International Grand Winner, wins a round trip flight to Osaka, offered by Bento&co, and a week stay in a house in Kyoto, offered by Japan Experience.
Erika, the Japan Grand Winner, wins a trip to Kyoto from where she lives in Japan, a one night stay for two in the Kyoto Royal Park Hotel, and dinner with the Bento&co team.
The selection of the grand winners and the finalists was long and very difficult. There were so many good entries and each of us have our own reasons for liking the bento pictures. After several votes, we, the seven team members of Bento&co, were able to decide on the two grand winners and the finalists, later a public vote was held and the 20 finalists were ranked. The higher the ranking the more great gifts contestants will receive from our sponsors. We have so many great gifts so no one will be disappointed.
