#MuwadoLoveLetter Winners, #SmartValentine Launch

Happy Valentines Day

We held  a love note writing competition, and after a month of submissions, we are glad to declare our winners today. We had 36 submissions Winners were determined by how viral their submissions went. Points were calculated by adding up every FB like, tweet, +1, LinkedIn share, Pin, Stumble and comment that they amassed. All these counted for 1 point each. The screenshots you’ll see were taken shortly after the competition closed on 13th February 2015 at 12 noon.

But before we announce the winners, we have a few PSA’s to make.

  • In the competition announcement, we promised all the top 10 submitters dinners with their loved ones on Valentines day. Unfortunately, that will not be happening. Our partner for that pulled out towards the close, due to unforeseen circumstances, so we’ve had to look for an alternative reward for the top 10. This will be announced on Monday 16th of February. We still wish you a memorable Valentines day, and since this has been dubbed the month of love, we hope what we decide to give you on Monday will still make the month memorable for you and your loved one.
  • The top 3 who have won cash prizes will be given this money by the 28th of February 2014. We hope they are not camera shy because some photographs will be taken for archiving purposes.
  • Smart telecom gave us 3 Kyali Smart Phones to also give out as part of this competition. The Kyali phone is Dual-sim phone that comes with UGX 6,500 free airtime monthly for 6 months, Facebook and Whatsapp pre-installed and 7 days of battery life. To win one of these gadgets, all you have to do is share some of your favourite lines from any of the love letters on twitter or Facebook. Add the #SmartValentine hashtag and tag Smart Telecom on either Facebook or Twitter. #SmartValentine is here to show people that with Smart, love is not just for a day, we celebrate love that is why we are making it a season not just one day.
