Below is the official announcement attached to our win this year. This was my third year of entering the competition, and this year I assembled a team of very talented people to help me see my vision come to life. They nailed my expectations beyond my imagining. I’m honoured to be in their presence and I’m blessed by their dedication.
Cassie, Mistie, Natalia, Mary Jane, and Kim, thank you for everything!
“First off, a MASSIVE thank you to all models, make-up artists and photographers who participated in the 5th annual Atlanta ZOMBIE PIN-UP Contest. Overall, we had 52 entries this year!”
The ZOMBIE PIN-UP Contest consisted of THREE CATEGORIES:
1.) PEOPLE’S FAVORITE was voted on at the July 29th Atlanta ZOMBIE PUB CRAWL. Each vote cost $1.00 with 100% of proceeds benefitting TEAM FOX (for Parkinson’s Disease research)
2.) ONLINE FAVORITE was voted for online, over a two-week period, which ended Wednesday, Aug. 18th, 2017. Fans were able to vote up to one time a day per entry. NOTE: 9,352 online votes were cast by the end of the contest with the contest viewed 14,500 times! Contestants were only eligible to win one spot in the online favorite.
3.) OVERALL WINNER was voted on by a panel of three established judges (see below). The judges viewed all entries submitted and picked their own Top 10 favorites, ranking them on a scale of 1-10. All of those photos were then compiled and voted on individually again by the panel of judges with total scores tallied, which then determined the Overall Winner.
