Photo Contest: And the winner is...

The waiting is finally over, and after a month of voting, the Jimdo community has chosen the winner of the big Jimdo Photo contest!

You sent in over 8,000 photos, and this one is #1: the little ladybug! And now he's going to be a big star at Jimdo.

Congratulations to the three winners!

If you submitted a photo and didn't make it to the top 3, there's good news for you too! We're going to raffle off the remaining prizes (photo software from Magix, GorillaPods from Joby, and Jimdo t-shirts) among all of the participants.

The winners will hear from us by email.
30 photos made it into the final round for the public voting. That's already a huge accomplishment, since we received over 8000 images from you. We'll be adding the "top 30" into the Jimdo photo gallery soon, and then Jimdo users all over the world will be able to use them in their headers. We're looking forward to seeing these beautiful new headers gracing the tops of your Jimdo pages!

Another big thank you from all of us at Jimdo to all the participants who submitted such fantastic photos and shared such great stories about your pictures.
