Remembering 2012: And the winner is…

Remembering 2012: And the winner is... 7

Thank you for all the wonderful entries in the #memoto12 contest! Announcing the winner…

Memoto is all about remembering those special everyday moments, and capturing them with a visual representation that will help us relive them whenever we want. In that spirit, we launched the contest “Remembering 2012 with Memoto” right before the team took some well-deserved holiday vacation. Now that we’re back in action it’s time to present our runners up followed by the winner, the lucky recipient of a free Memoto camera!

First, we did get a lot of beautiful, exciting and pretty pictures (over 60 entries), and we’re sure every photo carries a special meaning to the photographer who took it. We appreciate every entry a lot! You can check them out on the contest site here, it will stay active for posterity. We also put together a little collage of a few of the most aesthetically alluring pictures below:

That said, the name of the game this time was “most memorable moment”, indicating not only visual appeal but the emotional charge in the picture. This is of course a very subjective matter, and it made for some good debating back and forth among us internally. In the end we in the Memoto team picked these finalists for a first draft. The honorable mentions are thus:


So, who among these ended up the winner? With a powerful and emotional story told in just a few words, and a picture that captured a triumphatory and important moment in a person’s life, we really couldn’t go with anyone other than…

As the caption says: “Kicked cancer in the ass this year. Also sang the national anthem at the local cancer fundraiser game.” We couldn’t ask for a more memorable moment than that, or what do you think? The entry was made by Instagram user “yakebaj” or Jake Jager – we congratulate you, Jake! We’ll get in touch with you to get your delivery details. And again, thank you to everyone who participated!
