Two months ago, we asked you to design an original and engaging ice cream packaging that brings fun to kids with cartoon character “Max the lion”. All of you did a great job sending us amazing designs and today we are happy to announce the Ice Cream Packing winners! Please see below some comments that the winners wanted to share with the community and jury’s perceptions about these three best entries in italic. First prize of EUR 3,000 goes to Gilower (from Spain) "a novel idea, showing real invention. Captures the spirit of the competition with adventure - you have to do something to unlock the puzzle to gain the treat. It is also instant playvalue"
A good friend recommended eYeka to me. Participating in international contests is an important challenge to me, and some of the contests are launched by the best brands of the market! For me, it's a good opportunity to challenge myself and to extend significantly my curriculum. And  why not say it, because the prizes are very succulent! :P I have been studying modeling 3D for years, and this Ice Cream Packaging contest looks like a good opportunity to practice on the creation of a packaging. So I joined this contest. When I got the news that I won... as my first participation in a contest, I was slightly skeptical. I uploaded my media in the last day because I had other urgent work. Then, few days later, "eYeka" contacted me and communicated to me that I was the winner of the contest! The first thing that I thought was: to continue to participate in more contests in eYeka! When creating media, normally I take some time of reflection, when the bulb is illuminated, I put it on the paper and the rest comes alone, time and dedication, and do not forget the deadlines! I usually work alone. I’m a Graphical Designer and my projects do not require a great team to carry them out. Also, I have other projects that need teamwork with some artists, some of them are my best friends and my partner ; )
Second prize of EUR 1,500 goes to michel_schmit (from France) "a good combination of using both pieces of packaging - carton and stick - and combining this with online interactivity"
I knew eYeka from my cousin, he was interested in video contest. I participate in contests for money! It isn’t funny, but it's true, I haven't been working since September, I have done with the cards I have! Max the Lion is the first contest that I participated in eYeka! It's an interesting contest, I made it within 48 hours! When I found out that I won, I was surprised and happy! I did not really expect to win an award for my first entry! I received the eYeka email a few days before Christmas, so I call it a gift! When creating my entry, I usually start with my drawing first, at the beginning. I'm an illustrator, so I draw a lot. Then thanks to Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign :) In this case for Ice Cream Packing, I was thinking about what is cool now, I first thought of zombies! But it was not really targeting to the audiences, then I thought of the pirates, I think they appeal to children. I do not work with team at all! Seriously, I work alone on the competition now, and a few other small things... I think working in a team will be more interesting and challenging. Here is my site: http://shokujin-graphik.com I make design, layout, illustration ... Do not hesitate to contact me if needed! ;)
Third prize of EUR 250 goes to artgranat (from Ukraine) "a simple but nice idea, and uses existing packaging, so is quite practical to implement" Congratulations from eYeka to all of you who gave your best, winners and participants!  :) Thank you, guys! P.S. We apologize that we can’t publish the winning entries due to the confidential nature of this contest. Thank you for your understanding!
