The lucky winner is Ms. Anna Chepkova from Odessa Ukraine. “This was the first time we organized this type of contest and it seemed all our members really had a great time”, said Daniel Jordan, public affairs manager for Anastasia International.
The competition invited ten female members from Anastasia International to participate in an online competition where any member was welcome to enter their vote. Each of their profiles was featured on the site and members were allowed to cast their vote once per day. The winner would receive the title of Miss Valentine’s Day 2007, be prominently featured on the site, receive flowers and candies, plus many other exciting prizes. Valentine’s Day is now very popular in Russia and the former Soviet Union, so it was truly fun for all the members of Anastasia International. It was a unique opportunity to bridge cultures through a common understanding of a fun and romantic holiday.
The winner of the competition Ms. Anna Chepkova won by a narrow margin, because the competition was tough. Any of the ten profiles could have easily won the contest. She was truly surprised when they called to tell her the good news. “I couldn’t believe it! It was such a compliment. The next day I went to the local agency and they filled my arms with flowers and candies, it was so much fun”, said Anna. She continued, “I look forward to my special feature on Anastasia International and hopefully this will attract even more attention to my profile.”
Based on the success of this contest Anastasia International has decided to launch Miss International Women’s Day. This holiday takes place on March 8th in Russia and Ukraine and is one of the most special days for women in both countries. Flowers and gifts are customary, so the Flower & Gift Delivery Service is getting ready for another busy holiday.
