Our Final #ColorBeatsCoronavirusBlues Winner

Comments

We recently held a weekly colorized photo sharing competition, offering a free MyHeritage Complete Subscription to one lucky winner each week.

MyHeritage In Color™, our automatic photo colorization feature, is proving to be incredibly popular: over 10 million photos have been colorized through it since its release.

The response to our #ColorBeatsCoronavirusBlues contest has been overwhelming. We want to thank everyone who participated in the contest and helped make it a success!

We loved learning about your ancestors and getting a glimpse into their lives. For example, Natalie’s 3rd-great-aunt who was a trailblazing female mountaineer. Seeing her photo in color was incredible!

We also loved the multi-generational photo from 1942 that Mandy posted:

The winner was Cynthia Verspaget from Australia.

Cynthia was moved by the colorized photo of her grandfather, saying that she felt a little bit closer to him after seeing the effect of color. Cynthia’s sentiment is something that we hear often about MyHeritage In Color™, and it’s one of the most rewarding aspects of photo colorization.

Congratulations, Cynthia!

Here are some of the other incredible entries from the last week:

The contest may be over, but there’s no reason to stop colorizing black and white family photos as you find them.

Especially in these difficult times, seeing the faces of relatives and ancestors from years gone by in color can be inspiring and help you feel connected to them… and it’s a great and fun way to pass the time at home.

You can also participate in our new Free Yearbooks contest for another chance to win a free MyHeritage Complete subscription! Just share a MyHeritage yearbook page on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram with the hashtags #LookingGood and #FreeYearbooks and tag @MyHeritage to enter the draw. More details in this blog post.
