Desk Factor – we have a winner!

The PPH Desk Factor contest had a prize worth fighting for – it wasn’t a recording contract, but nor were there any nasty comments from Simon Cowell. We were offering a £100 IKEA voucher through our Facebook contest, and the competition was fierce.

It was National Freelancer’s Day last week and we wanted to know which freelancer had the best workspace.

Claire and her cats took an early lead before Rhys in Oldham appealed for a new chair which clearly warmed the charitable side of our fans (or at least his mates).

However, it was the late entries by Steve from London and Jan from Birmingham that took tallies over the 100 mark.

In the end, Jan rang up 137 votes to Steve’s 118, so she has a £100 voucher winging its way to her.

So congratulations to Jan. We plan to run other competitions in future, if you have any ideas let us know in the comments!

Here are the top 5  along with their captions, check out all the entries at the special section of our Facebook page, where you can also see how Joanne works in Bali, Sophie’s outdoor suite and Liane’s work space (and appeal to male voters with her knee-high boots).

WINNER – Jan, Birmingham

This was a first…the curtains actually open! Hoorray!! Now back to my freelancing in the dark…
