Piktomovember – Winners Announced!

Posted by on .

During November, Piktochart ran a campaign in support of Movember Foundation’s mission to raise awareness of men’s health issues. There was a competition in which we asked participants to share a photo or an infographic of their Mo journey. We promised that for each entry we would donate $10 to the Movember Foundation, and would grant each winner a 1-year free PRO membership for their participation. Well done to all Piktomovember participants and thank you all for taking a stand against men health’s issues! With your support, we were able to do our small part toward making a greater impact to change the face of men’s health-related issues.

Congratulations go out to our winners below, who showed genuine creativity in their Mo style. Each one of them has received their prize of 1-year free PRO membership plan. We kept our promise and made a donation of $1000 to the Movember Foundation which was higher than the amount raised. That’s because we believe in good karma and enjoy doing good and spreading love! Winners were contacted via Instagram and email. Here they are!

Ahmatobirizi – Ahmad El Bizri shared the following information about himself:
“I am new to Piktochart. I’ve just used it last month to create some infographics for my Master’s program. It was very easy and interesting. I am Lebanese, doing Visual and Digital Media Masters in Spain at IE Business School. “

Pljimson – Pamela Jimson shared the following information about herself:
“I am the Educational Technologist at William Jessup University in Rocklin, California. I also work as a student teaching supervisor and adjunct instructor in the School of Education. I have worked in the education field for 28 years working as an elementary, middle, and high school teacher as well as a district Technology Coordinator and K-8 school principal. In my present capacity I train the faculty at our university on integrating technology into their courses and specialize in hybrid instruction.

Typically, I use Piktochart for my technology blog posts and a few training advertisements. I must say Piktochart really helped me get off the ground as a technology blogger.

Within a day it went “viral” on Twitter. I received thousands of visitors to my site. Since then, I have had many requests to use this infographic in school training sessions and even published on a training site for another site. It’s amazing what one infographic can do.”

Gillreidy – Gillian Reidy shared the following information about herself:
“By day I am a designer and I have my own graphic design company called Penhouse where I work with 3 others (see here: http://www.penhouse.ie/) . Our countryside studio is based on a barley farm in the middle of Ireland. We design for food, youth, arts, tourism, environmental and general consumer customers all over Irelad. I am married to Colm (the barley farmer) and I have two children, Amy is 13 and Noah is 11.

I came across Piktochart when I was researching Infographic solutions for a client of ours, Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI). I love the easy customising where I can input my own graphics and truly personalise my information. I’m looking forward to having some fun with it over the coming months. Thank you so much for this lovely prize which I hope to make full use of!”

On a final note, we are beyond happy that the contest prizes went into these awesome people’s hands. We are big fans of their work and are proud that Piktochart can be of help to them on their path to personal and professional greatness.
