Mini-competition: winners announced!

15th April 2009 by Denise

At last – the moment you’ve all been waiting for – the winners of the MiniCard Box Mini-Competition! The competition closed on Sunday night, and we’ve been deliberating ever since. There was a great range of entries, from the theatrical to the practical, the lavatorial to the botanical. Thanks so much to everyone who entered and joined in the fun.

And now, without further ado:

The funniest photo of the new MiniCard box

We were just the tiniest bit gobsmacked by this. And when I say ‘tinest’ what I mean is ‘completely’. But, if the new MiniCard box can give a girl a grand day out, who are we to argue? Congrats to Sweet Peas Photography!

The most interesting re-use of the new MiniCard box

A beautiful set of photos, we thought this re-use was imaginative, inventive – and stylish to boot! It’s the MiniCard box as jelly mould:

Ta da!

Now we’re wondering if we could squeeze a whole ‘Cooking with MOO’ book (cmook?) out of this. Congratulations to ocook

The photo of the new MiniCard box in the most unusual location

How on earth tony_the_bald_eagle got a shot of our MiniCard box-making-process we’ll never know – but it seems he’s at last documented the fact our new boxes are hatched, not made*! Wrapped in foil our rare-breed eggs are carefully incubated for a total of seven weeks, before their furious wriggling cracks the shells. Congratulations to Tony for this action shot, of a new MiniCard box emerging!

*This might not be 100% true.

Special Award for Culture

The judges felt we should also give a prize to itchy_fingers for her dramatic production of Shakespeare’s classic, Macbeth. Congrats for making us smile – we’re looking forward to the full stop-frame animated feature, which we’re sure is coming soon!

The first person to post a photo of the new MiniCard box

This has already been announced, but here’s that photo by no5 Robsta again, in all its glory:

Well done for being so quick off the mark!


So, congratulations to all our winners, we’ll be contacting you tomorrow with details of your MiniCard prize. Thanks again to everyone who took part!

    uau!!! :D
    I will send you more photos from other uses of this small box in our cooking experiences! hum… tomorrow we’ll have miniboxed millet :)

    And by the way, I’d like to congratulate moo for the amazing work as a big small company. It emanates, in all of the interactions that we’re able to establish with you, a whole sense of well-working.
    And that, in my opinion, besides making your clients truthfully satisfied, inspires others to work even better, to overcome their standards and, at the end, treading steps to a better world.

  2. Denise:

    @ocook No, thank you – for taking part, and for the compliments :)

    We’d *love* to see more cooking with MOO, please, please, please? Your photos are lovely!

  3. Tony:

    Thanks for the cards – they’re such a great networking tool that are guaranteed to start a conversation every time. You guys rock!

  4. Kim:

    I love your use of the word “gobsmacked”. I actually heard for the first time when Susan Boyle used it during an interview. It always amazes me how different American English and British English can be. The Moo website is very British…and I love it. I especially love when my order status is “Dispatched”! Yay, Moos are on the way!
