Jury's Prize Winners
Selection by NIVEA
limandao #1 Prize
- Graphic Design
- Creative Writing
- Label & Package Design
#1 Prize of €4,000
I'm so happy to win the 1st place in this contest. It's not my first participation on eYeka but my personal experience teaches me to never give up.
Even if you lose a contest, always try to look at the bright side. Loosing does not only mean failure, it is also a new experience to add to your own knowledge and it sometimes shows you what you should and should not do.
As a photographer, here is my two cents advice, bring your camera (even you smartphone whatever can take pictures) everyday, everywhere keep practicing, shoot everything that inspire you, whatever it is, and always stay aware of what surrounds you.
limandao, we truly enjoyed your idea for NIVEA, thanks a lot! The image is so sincere and exciting; we looked forward to exactly those stories of closeness. Many thanks that you shared this gorgeous picture with us!
Soulliquor #2 Prize
- Graphic Design
- Script Writing
#2 Prize of €2,500
eYeka has changed my life in some ways. I’ve won prizes in some of the contests I decided to participate, and this gave me opportunities to buy some lights, lenses, etc…
All these tools to make better work. eYeka also gave me opportunities to push my limits further when creating a video : when you have to make a video for high standing trademarks, who require high quality videos, you have to meet great persons, you have to find the best places to shoot, you have to ask professionals to shoot with you… you go further… you become better, with some difficulties sometimes, but that’s what makes you stronger. The most important thing is not the destination, but the journey.
I have a daughter. She’s 1 year old… She has been the reason I quit my job of Biologist for 6 months, to see her growing… No pay during these 6 months… But eYeka was there… I eventually had the chance to see my daughter growing in the best conditions… No price for that. I’m a fulfilled and happy father thanks to eYeka… No price for that.
Could I make videos my everyday job ? I don't know. I'd like to... I've already made a TV commercial for the first National TV Channel in France named TF1, and when it has been showed on TV, I was one of the most happiest men on this planet !!! A friend called saying to me : Man !!! This is what we've made both together !!!! And we can see it on the big screen !!!! Wow !!! Watch your TV right now !!! My wife was proud of me… I saw it in her eyes. Magic moment. I need this. This is what makes me alive. This has become an evidence. I can't do without this now...
Who knows what will be my future, i don't even know myself.
Soulliquor, we really liked your entry. The picture gives a lovely feeling; it is trustworthy and fits perfectly to what we look for. Thanks a lot for your story and all the best for your family!
