MacBook Pro Contest Winners Announced

There were a lot of very good tweets promoting WDL Premium, which made the judging process very challenging. What we liked most about the tweets was that there was a good mixture of both funny and explanatory approaches taken. However, there ended up being six tweets that really stood out, and of course only one that we felt did the best job of promoting WDL Premium. Here is the MacBook Pro winner followed by the lifetime membership winners.

Chuck Norris just killed an army of zombies using nothing but his beard and some sick vectors from WDL Premium. #wdlmacbookpro DCalDesign

Design folks, at $7/month, WDL’S Premium Content is the trifecta between those Beatles remasters and your work. #wdlcontest1 joetower

To the winners of the lifetime membership, we will cancel your subscriptions at Papal so you will no longer be billed.

We think this contest was a success, but there were a few existing members that were disappointed about not having a chance to win the MacBook Pro. Just so you know, all future contests will give all members a chance to win the same prize. Who would like us to do another contest?

    Congrats to StopDropDesign! Enjoy the MacBook Pro! Wish I had known to dip into the circa 2007 Chuck Norris joke bin.

    Wow!
    All I can say is I’m shocked and honored. I never win anything.

    Thank you so much!
    I will look forward to a lifetime of awesome premium content.

    I will also continue spreading the word around design communities about the quality content WDL is putting out there. I’m trying to get my coworkers to signup too.

    Thanks again and keep up the fantastic premium content and contest opportunities.

    much respect,
    Joe

    I join in the Congrats to StopDropDesign. I really had no chance against a Chuck Norris fuled tweet, but hey I’ll take the lifetime membership. The resources are worth more than a mac. IMO I could use the resources to create something that will allow me to buy a mac,how bout that. :)

    For those hating on Chuck, didn’t you get the memo? Chuck Norris doesn’t age, and neither does his jokes. We are honored to be mentioned in the same sentence.

    Congratulations to all the winners!

    Seriously though, that’s a huge blessing! Thank you so much. PLUS, you have great resources. I already have plans for one of the WP themes you recently added.

    God bless!
