We are proud to announce the grand winners and finalists of our 2017 International Bento Contest!

The Grand Prize Winners

Bento Contest Winner 1 2017

Yumi, from Germany, the International Grand Winner, wins a round trip flight to Osaka, offered by Bento&co! Her Bento is perfect. It's beautiful, it looks really tasty and of course it has noodles (pasta) inside.

Chef Bento Contest 2017 Japan

Tomoko, 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, our team was able to decide on the two grand winners and the finalists. 

The ranking for the top 10 finalists will be decided by an online public vote on the Bento&Co website.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. The vote will open on April 21st and close at 12 noon April 27th. All times are Japan Standard Time (JST). 



For those of you who weren't able to win the grand prize, don't worry! You will still get your 10% Discount Code after we announce the winners on April 28th.

Thank you to all participants of the contest. Your involvement is a pleasure and made us so hungry! (^-^)
