10 days to go …

Our Crowdfunding Campaign on Kickstarter.com has been online for over three weeks now and we are very happy:

  • Since last week we are fully funded (still makes my heart jump and I just can’t get rid of this big smile)
  • 141 people supported us so far – some are well-known, most are strangers to us but even more appreciated. Believe us: every single backer is celebrated here
  • We’ve reached over 12.000 Euros by now, which means we are 109% funded and have already surpassed our initial goal

Now we have 10 days left. 10 days which mean an unique opportunity to us, to be in close contact with interested and interesting people all around the world, to get to know our community, to feel your support and of course to kickstart Round not Square even further.

That is why we want to ask you to keep on talking about us, sharing, liking, supporting. We have a new goal: if we reach 20.000 Euros by the time this campaign ends, we will be able to build our own online shop much faster than planned. Then every backer will get an exclusive discount on the first purchase on the online shop! Because we deeply appreciate your backing!

So keep the spirit up: 10 days left!! Support us on keeping things going!

The Audience Award – Capturing Movement

Last Saturday we invited the public to help us chose the audience award of the photo mission we initiated with EyeEm and their great community. About 8000 images were handed in by over 2000 photographers around the world – imagine! Those are impressive numbers. And even more amazingly: we received loads of impressive images!

So before making the Jury decisions on the winners, we wanted to give you all a chance to choose your favorite picture out of our final selection of 24 outstanding images. Taking the global set-up of the artists into account we decided to have two days of Facebook voting before the actual event.

On Saturday then we had a remarkable evening, combining the Finissage of our exhibition at the Wettbureau in Berlin-Wedding, with the offline voting for the Audience Award, some champagne and Jessica Nay’s beautiful music: Noah’s tape live in concert.

The most extraordinary moment of my evening was definitely to get to know two really cool girls who had just had a 6 hour drive to be there – this totally made my day!!

And last but not least: we are proud to announce Rachel Chua (@rachlannchuaa) as the winner of the Audience ard. Congratulations, Rachel! Your picture has made its way to the hearts of hundreds!
