Earlier in the month I ran a competition here on ProBlogger in conjunction with World Vision Australia and their blog Learn About Poverty. The competition was for Australian bloggers to give World Vision advice on their online strategy going forward.
We had 29 entries and having read through them all late last week I was really impressed with the quality of the work submitted. The effort that some of you went to in putting your submissions together was quite extraordinary and I know the team at World Vision are incredibly pleased with the advice that they’ve received and with the wisdom that was in the comments.
However there can be only one winner of the amazing prize (a trip to Sydney and a day of digital learning with Microsoft, Amnesia, Yahoo!7 and Google. That winner is Loreena Walsh.
Steve Hopkins from World Vision said this about Loreena’s entry:
“I loved this post, largely for the great way she outlined how we could get around the staff-safety thing. Whilst many people had great suggestions about how we could ignite a social movement with social media tools, Loreena’s response to how to achieve this AND protect the safety of our staff was top notch. She highlighted what was most important to her, and the blogging community, and that helps us enormously. Certainly, we have already taken much from her post.”
Steve also went on to mention another submission that was incredibly helpful from Pete Williams who came a very close 2nd place. While there’s no prize for 2nd – I’d like to send Pete a copy of my book as a token of appreciation for sharing his wisdom. If for some reason Loreena is unable to take the prize we’ll send Pete to represent ProBlogger readers on this day!
Thanks to everyone for their submissions. Loreena and Pete were just two of the great entries received. There were plenty of others also! Thanks everyone.
