Best of the Year Coffee Label Winners 2013

We can’t believe another year has passed here at Lizzy’s, and we’ve enjoyed another batch of killer snapshots gracing our coffee “covers”.

At the end of every year, we ask you to vote for your favorite snapshots of the year, and here are your winners! Every month of the year we look forward to the photos our customers send in – they range from amazing to silly, and everything in between. The best of them always tell a story, leaving us wondering “what was really happening that minute in time?”

All of the winners, plus 3 random voters (that’s 3 of you!) will enjoy a Best of the Year gift box, including a 2 oz sampler of each coffee & label, a porcelain mug, and a few other treats.

Best of the Year 2012 Photo Label Contest Winners

Babies, puppies, swings – oh my!

What’s this all about? Every month our coffee labels change – all with customer submitted photography. We pick our favorites each month to feature on the coffees, but at year’s end, we leave it up to all our customers and photographers, and their friends and family to vote for the favorite cover shots from the year’s featured pictures.

This year the competition was fierce! Votes were coming in right up to midnight with some pretty excellent battles going down.

We have to give a big shout-out to all the cool photographers who have shared their pictures to be featured on our coffee labels. Nothing makes us more happy than hearing our coffee made someone’s day great – yummy beans inside of the bag, and a little smile on the outside.

So, without further ado, here are the winners you’ve voted Best of the Year for 2012. Congratulations!

Bowls are so 2002.

Snapshooter Profile May

Check out our latest featured photographer! Joy Elizabeth Effie’s snapshot won the May “B*Day” coffee label, and she admits to a photography obsession.

Name: Joy Elizabeth Effie
Home Town: La Mesa, California

What’s your story? Are you a pro-photographer, or a weekend snapshooter, or something in between? Definitely, “something in between”. I’ve always loved photography & taken many photos, but it wasn’t until the world of digital that my interest became an obsession.

What’s your favorite thing to photograph?
Besides my children, which are my greatest inspiration, I would say portraits or candids where I like to capture emotion or a sparkle in others!

What would you say to someone else about the Lizzy’s Fresh Label contest?
It’s an honor to be chosen for the label, but once I tasted Lizzy’s coffee, I really felt like a winner for how great it tastes! Plus, my daughter turned 7 this May which was the same month that her 1 year old birthday cake photo was chosen so, the timing was awesome & bragging rights have been pretty cool, too!

Oh yes, what’s your favorite way to drink your coffee?
Besides brewed with cinnamon & a splash of cream, a simple pleasure I greatly appreciate is that first sip in the morning as I sit at the computer to read the news, catch up on Facebook & Flickr, then post-process my photos … a delightful combination! An additional treat I occasionally indulge in is that of an afternoon pick-me-up blended Frap. Mmm … delish!
