CONTEST RESULTS: PETA AWARENESS Photo Competition

Maniera PETA Photo Contest Results…

Well after much deliberation, This has been one interesting and difficult contest to judge. Entries were just unbelievable. After calculating the votes, we realized we had a tie between Zoey Greybeard and Tonya Coppola. We decided to have another outside judge to decide the tie breaker. Both contestants submitted such powerful entries that the judges were unable to come to a final winner.

Judging was based on the photo, questionaire, slogan and who did the over all work that capture PETA’s message.
The photos submitted by both Zoey and Tonya are amazing so we at Maniera Magazine decided to run each photo in the December issue of Maniera. Featured on the Confessions of an SL Model blog , Maniera blog and posted on the Maniera Moolto page.

Would like to also give congrats to both Seth Diabolio and Pyper Dollinger for placing 3rd and 4th.

Also a special thank you for all of the judges and a very special thank you to Ricoracer Flux and Mikey Batriani for putting together such a unique contest.
