We have the winners! 🏆
Wow, that was a blast! Where to start? We had sooo many amazing entries – you really outdid yourselves by being creative, passionate and funny with your builds.
We loved them ALL! With more than 200 builds to choose from, it was not easy for us to pick just three. And now, without further ado, meet the winners:
1st Place: Lelde Blumberga
More pictures can be found here
2nd Place: @sarahmaltschwarz
3rd Place: @lenapaintandpencil
We can’t really end it here without a few honorable mentions: our Jury had a super-hard time to cast the votes, as entries were all great: this meant that a few entries lost the podium by a minute amount of points. It feels right to share a few them here, to give you a glimpse on all the amazing work that has been done during this exciting #DIYKitChallenge22.
