Congratulations to Jacky Spencer with her Mama Seat is winner of the Despoke & Shapeways 100% Design Contest.
All of the finalists for the contest were 3D printed and have been on display for the last few days at 100% Design in London. After much deliberation Mark Westall from Despoke made the tough decision to choose a winner from such great entrants.
Things are really hectic at the office. First of all because of all the media attention we are getting because of our fund raising announcement and now we have been nominated for the Accenture Innovation Awards!
Shapeways has been nominated in the category best web and we have been nominated for the overall price (Blauwe Tulp). We need your help to win, because the winner is decided by voting. Please visit our page here where you can see my pitch of Shapeways and on the right top you can leave your email address to cast your vote ("stem"). The text is in Dutch, but basically describes what we do. Your email address will not be used for anything else but validating your vote and if you want to opt-in (checkbox) you get updates from them on the contest.
If we win Shapeways will get €50.000 in media help and €40.000 in cash. So if you want Shapeways to win cast your vote. We will then spend the money on features most asked for by the community.
Shapeways received over 70 high quality entries in the 100% Design Contest and the difficult task was for Mark from Despoke to choose five finalists which we will 3D print, then the winner will be chosen at our stand D27 at 100% Design in London.
In the end, with so many great designs to choose from, the task was too much for Mark so he chose seven finalists instead of five! (just like Whystler)
If you would like to see the finalists come and visit us 100% Design, September 23rd to 26th, Earls Court, London. And/or look below... Who would you choose to win?
