Freelancer.com "Expose Our Logo To Win US$10,000" Competition Won By Andrea Smith
Freelancer.com announced the winner of their global “Expose Our Logo To Win US$10,000” Competition.
The new Freelancer.com logo has been exposed to thousands of people thanks to all of the competition entrants.
The grand prize winner is Andrea Smith who took Freelancer to Daytona and submitted a creative video entry.
“We have been amazed by all the entrants from all corners of the globe!", said Matt Barrie, Chief Executive of Freelancer.com. “I would like to personally congratulate Andrea Smith for her great effort and creativity in exposing our new Freelancer logo. I would also like to congratulate all the other winners and commend everyone for the hard work put in to all the entries. It all looked a lot of fun!", he said.
Andrea Smith recently graduated from the University of Florida with a bachelors degree in architecture. After winning the $10,000, Andrea said “This comes at the perfect time, three months before my wedding (to Travis, from the video) and a few months before graduate school starts. Aside from the money, I think winning the competition will help me professionally, because my entry applied the knowledge I've gained about marketing from my business minor with the computer and presentation skills from my architectural education.”
