Top 100 Language Lovers Competition 2013 – The final brief

Buffer

Since we published the results of our competition June 12th, this is the perfect time to take stock of it.

Hosting the competition has always been a great experience, but this year it was even more fun. Many of you helped us to spread the word about the competition and the results with some nice posting, comments and mentions, such as:

Some of you really surprised us with very creative and funny ways of promoting themselves and the competition: have a look at this video made by Talk to me in Korean who made the first position of the Language Learning Blogs category :)

The average quality of the competitors was considerably high: it has been tough to select the Top 100 and then the final ranking! As usual, we rewarded the winners with a prize: this year we made a donation on their behalf to the Unicef Education Programme.

From the feedback we have received and the enthusiasm we have felt, we can say that it was definitely worth it!

At last, some fun statistics ;)

We collected 1024 nominations and 41054 votes – wow! – This is 45% more than last year! The competition’s updates have been noticeably shared on the social media: more than 1700 likes, shares, +1’s, tweets, re-tweets, comments!

There is only one thing left to say: thank you all for your participation and/or support!

We hope to see you again on bab.la and Lexiophiles next year…

We will soon publish interviews with the winners to know their impressions about the competition and how they prepared for it! Stay tuned!
