The results are in for the inaugural #CDBFselfie contest, in which we asked you to submit shots of you at your favorite areas of the festival. After our judges chose the 12 finalists for the 2014 #CDBFselfie Contest, YOU voted with your LIKES on the Facebook album. The deadline for voting was midnight Friday, August 1, and the winners have been notified!
There were more than 200 entries for the contest and many of them were fun and amazing and showed a wide range of festival areas, from the dragon boat races and the Taste of Asia food courts to Performing Arts Stages and just the colorful variety of Asian culture that's celebrated at CDBF. Many thanks to everyone who attended the 2014 festival and to everyone who submitted your photos for the #CDBFselfie Contest! Plan now to take the best selfie for next year!
