#ColorBeatsCoronavirusBlues Winner & Entries from Week 3!

Comments1

At the end of March, as a gesture to our users who are isolated at home, we unlocked our highly popular automatic black and white photo colorization feature, MyHeritage InColor™, for free and unlimited use for the next month. We also challenged our users from around the globe to share their colorized photos with us using the hashtag #ColorBeatsCoronavirusBlues for a chance to win a free Complete subscription to MyHeritage. We have been selecting a new winner each week.

This week, we’ve seen even more incredible entries: wedding photos, childhood photos, photos of ancestors at work and in military uniform, all brought vividly to life by colorization.

Here are some of our favorites from this week:

Another really old family photo brought to life by color. These are my great, great, great Whaley aunts on my mother's paternal side. Their brother is my great, great grandfather. Their father died fighting for the Union in the Civil War. Their mother's lineage goes back to the first English and Dutch settlers in NY state. Both of their great grandfathers Whaley and Winfield fought in the American Revolutionary War. This portrait was probably taken in 1881. #betterwithcolor #vintagestyle #vintageclothing #vintagephotography #vintagephoto #myheritage #ancestors #dar #daughtersoftheamericanrevolution #daughtersofthecivilwar @myheritage_official #colorbeatscorinavirusblues #tbt #tossbacktuesday #tossback #throwback

So many stunning entries! This week’s prize, however, goes to this beautiful entry from Jennifer Wilson of West Virginia:

Jennifer submitted multiple entries this week, each of them with a lovely photo and an intriguing story to go with it:

Congratulations, Jennifer!

Many thanks to all who entered this week. If you have more to share, or haven’t shared your colorized photos with us yet — now is the time. This coming week will be the fourth and final week of the contest. Only 10 days left to enjoy free, unlimited access to MyHeritage InColor™, so be sure to make them count!

To enter the contest, simply colorize your favorite black and white family photo with MyHeritage InColor™, post the result on your favorite social media platform with the hashtag #ColorBeatsCoronavirusBlues, and tell us a little about the photo. You just might be the next to win a free Complete subscription to MyHeritage — which, by the way, would grant you unlimited access to MyHeritage InColor™ long after our special offer ends on April 22.

We look forward to seeing your entries!
