We asked the winners of the inaugural CDBF Selfie Contest to post selfies of themselves with their winning VISA gift cards. Here's what they shot:
Tyler Nading, First Place ($100)
Denver Taiko, Second Place ($50)
DJ Skip Rip, Third Place ($25)
For the second year, we invited visitors to submit selfies taken at the Colorado Dragon Boat Festival. The top contenders were posted on our Facebook page and YOU voted with your "LIKE"s. The top winner was awarded a $100 VISA gift card, second place got $50 and third place $25.
So without any more ado, here are the winners of the 2015 CDBF Selfie Contest!
Karen Shimamoto of the Japanese drum group Denver Taiko, submitted this selfie of herself with members of the popular group, and earned third place honors.
Joanne Liu and her daughter Melody star in the second-place winning selfie. It helps that Melody is so adorable, but we also like the CDBF dragon she's holding!
... AND THE WINNER IS....In first place is painter and tattoo artist Jason Lamb, who posed with Kurt Weinreich, the man who attends the Colorado Dragon Boat Festival in full traditional Japanese samurai armor. Other contest submission were posed with Kurt, but somehow, the ink-and-sword combo worked, and Jason's selfie ran away with the votes. Congratulations Jason!
