Announcing the Five 100GB Winners

Thanks again to everyone who participated in our testimonial-100GB giveaway last week!

THE PROCESS

We had 110 entries across email, our blog and social media. We compiled and numbered all of them. Alan – our CTO and co-founder – ran a random number generation query and that is how we arrived at our five 100GB for life account winners.

MORE WINNERS – WHY IT COULD BE YOU

Next month, we are updating the testimonials on our website. We’d love to use some of your submissions along with a real photo (with your permission). We will contact you if your testimonial is chosen and offer you 50GBs for life as a thank you.

High fives and tidal waves of gratitude from the SpiderOak team!

A Little About Our Freedom Photo Contest Winner

We had a fantastic number of contestants. The photographic interpretation of freedom was interestingly wide. As suspected, it means something slightly different to all of us. The freedom photo contest allowed the important creative talent to shine and we appreciate all the entries and votes. Expressing freedom is important to all and it certainly has shown.

We caught up with contest winner, Terry Jones, to learn a little more about the winning photo:

“The reason I chose this picture, was in no small part due to the ‘relief’ and ‘Freedom’ a parent feels when their children are sleeping. Usually at the age of my daughter (6 months old, at the time), getting your child to sleep is a hard thought and demanding process. Once they are asleep, only then are you released, and set free for that small window of time, thus allowing me to further enjoy using my cloud storage at SpiderOAK.”

As our grand prize winner, Jones will receive $100 and 100 GBs.

When we asked Jones how he will use the winnings, he replied:

“I plan on taking my two kids to Chipmunks Playland which is a childrens indoor activity center, as well as get them some new clothes I guess.”

We encourage you to post your congratulations in the comments section below. You can see all the stunning entries on our Freedom Photo Contest Album on our Facebook or Flickr page.
