First YORI Fan Art Contest Drew Over 500 Entries Nationwide!
Over a year since YORI was introduced to the market, the brand has been a part of every starter’s home. They have been committed to building furniture that is smart, easy, yet rewarding to own. From product design down to customer service, the dedicated team behind YORI designed the whole brand experience for the customers. A DIY (do-it-yourself) project doesn’t have to be complicated to be rewarding—this is what YORI is all about.
So, to celebrate their love for design and their followers, YORI opened a fan art contest that ran from April 20, 2021 to May 15, 2021. Despite being a new brand, YORI received over 500 entries from different artists nationwide. The overwhelming response from the participants made the competition stiff and the selection of winners challenging. Many artworks were exceptionally good, but only three emerged as winners.
The announcement of the YORI Fan Art Contest was posted on YORI’s official Facebook page on May 18, 2021, 5PM.
YORI selected the following winners:
Nathaniel Surbano Refermoso – Grand Prize
Xander Agcopra – Consolation Prize
Mary Kay M. Daguro – Consolation Prize
The team would also like to recognize these young talents: Bernadette Anne M. Miguel and Nicole Kates A. Samonte for their exceptional artworks:
The grand winner incorporated Aya, Riku, Yori ‘the cat’, and Kaiso Bookshelf in his brightly colored illustration. The rest of the winners drew inspiration from their personal experiences and favorite memories in life.
Grand prizes include Jobu Table and Kaoku Loveseat, meanwhile, two runners-up brought home Sagyo Mini Desk.
YORI is also excited to announce that there will be a bigger fan art contest that everyone needs to watch out for soon. YORI products are available at SM Home branches nationwide and ShopSM.com. The customers can also purchase via SM Call to Order by dialing #143SM (#14376).
