Thanks to everyone who entered our 15th Anniversary Contest!
With so many great entries, it was hard to choose the winners of our FREE A La Carte Service. We received over 650 entries from over two dozen countries, including Australia, Canada, China, Czech Republic, England, Greece, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Kenya, Kyrgyzstan, Malta, Nigeria, Philippines, Romania, Scotland, Senegal/West Africa, South Africa, South Korea, Sudan, Taiwan, Trinidad/West Indies/Tobago, and Zimbabwe.
Additional first-prize BONUS
Choosing just two winners (for clients and nonclients) was so difficult that we decided to ADD ONE EXTRA WINNER, who will receive a FREE round of our A La Carte submissions. A number of writers chose to write about the topic of Writer’s Relief, so we considered those entries as part of an additional category.
Over the next few weeks, we’ll be posting more of the entries that were submitted to our contest. Stay tuned!
So, without further ado, we present the three first-prize winners.
Winner of the GENERAL ENTRIES category (wins FREE A La Carte Service)
Congratulations to Catharine Bramkamp of Cotati, California, for winning the first prize in our general entries category. Her life story in 15 words made us crack up laughing. Here’s the winning entry:
Winner of the ACTIVE CLIENTS category (wins $100 off his next invoice)
Congratulations to Eli Langner from Tucson, Arizona! We loved this clever little poem, especially the unique way it is laid out.
Winner of the additional Writer’s Relief category (wins FREE A La Carte Service)
Congratulations to Joanne Hirase-Stacey of Malad, Idaho. We thought your submission was very funny and very apt—given that we love both grammar and our canine mascots!
