Round up of all our 24LIVE winners

December 2, 2011
I can’t believe that this time last week we were right in the thick of 24LIVE. Busy announcing challenges, scanning through hundreds of entries and above all enjoying the banter on the wall, knowing you guys were enjoying it every bit as much as we were!     It’s huge congratulations to Dianne Sellar Craswell for her ‘Who is behind the lens shot. It’s a brilliant take on a self-portrait shot. You’ve won the £3000 cash prize! Bet you’ll be out Christmas shopping this weekend. For much of the week we’ve had  the highly enjoyable task of judging all the entries. There’s been many a great debate but here are all 24 very worthy winners. I’ve particularly enjoyed all the collages you’ve made, it’s wonderful to see all the different challenges together like that.   Thanks to Paul Sanders, The Picture Editor at The Times, for judging our overall winner and putting us in glorious technicolour in their online gallery. He’s been really impressed with all the entries!   Back tomorrow with news of the next Adventzilla

Christmas is all wrapped up for someone

December 2, 2011
Phew this is the last of the 24LIVE winners to be announced. It’s a case of last – it was challenge 24 you know – but definitely not least. Well done to Daisy Bradbury for her genius with this absolute Christmas cracker of a shot!     Oh dear Daisy, we had lots of people with rolls and rolls of wrapping paper doing fun things for this one but nobody made more effort than you, that’s for sure. Hope Pete was a willing model! Do you think you could drop by to do all my Christmas wrapping? You’re obviously an expert. Talking of wrapping, the prize for this one is all wrapped up and remains a mystery for now but fear not Daisy, all will be revealed on 24th December. Trust me it’ll be well worth waiting for. Ooh the suspense, aren’t we cruel? Back with a round up of all the winners in a tick

Legs, landscapes and something in the shadows

December 2, 2011
Another trio of fantastic 24LIVE winners & prizes. First we have a pair of legs, although something tells me they’re not from the same person! We had some very arty shots for the ‘Contrast’ challenge but nothing made us smile more than Agata Masio’s take on the this theme, which is why it strode into first place. You’ve won a HD Video Camera worth £200. Happy filming!     For the ‘Landscapes and great outdoors’ challenge there were some truly stunning scenes. As with all the other challenges though there can only be one winner and that’s Verity Thewlis with this beautiful shot. Verity your prize is a trip to the equally beautiful Lake District for two. Have a wonderful time and be sure to post some photos from your break on our wall.     There were plenty of things lurking in the shadows for our ‘Shadows’ challenge. This entry from Darren Chappell had the added advantage of making us looking twice and then wondering how he worked his magic. It’s a great idea and wins you something I can guarantee you’ll want to look at again and again, it’s a Samsung LED 19” Plasma TV worth £250.   We’re nearly there, more on their way!

24LIVE Headphones, Hamper and Hifi prizes

December 2, 2011
We kicked off our mega 24LIVE photo bonanza with the theme ‘New’, a nice and easy one to get us going. The winner of this one is Jenny Chapelhow who went for the inspired idea of the fact that tweet has just made it into the dictionary for the first time and you know us, we love to tweet! Your prize will be music to your ears as it’s Bose headphones worth £130.     Next up it was a huge John Lewis Hamper of festive goodies worth £200 for our ‘Christmas’ challenge. We had lots of entries to get us into the Christmas spirit and the winner certainly gets across the anticipation of Christmas. Congratulations to Rachael Green for this gorgeous gift tag idea. Enjoy your hamper.     Andy Simon we hope you’re loud and proud of your prize. Yes you’re the winner of challenge 13 ‘Loud’. This one was particularly funny as we’d just read on the wall that you were gutted you hadn’t won anything – little did you know! Well done you’ve won a Panasonic HIFI System with iPOD Dock worth £120. Play your victory song and play it loud!

Adventzilla’s day two challenge

December 2, 2011
Ok ok I see from the comments on the wall that you can’t take the anticipation of challenge two a moment longer! Right let’s put you out of your misery and have some Friday fun. I’ve just peeled back door 2 to reveal today’s challenge ‘You know it must be Christmas when…’ For me it’s when I see the supermarket shelves stacked with mince pies, certain television adverts and when someone in the office, you know who you are, hangs up their Christmas stocking and starts dropping hints! To take part just post a photo or a comment on our Facebook Wall to show what makes you know it’s Christmas. A comment and a photo won’t win you any extra brownie points but will keep us all entertained so the more the merrier. Remember if you enter, your name is automatically added into our prize draw to win £2500. Three, two, one – go!
