Congratulations to the Yola Buildathon Contest Winners!

And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for. We received so many amazing and well-designed sites that it took us all week to sort through and decide on the winners.

The decision was tough, and we’re tired.

Without further ado, here are the winners to the 2014 Yola Buildathon Contest:

Grand Prize

Made by Hol is an invitation and stationery business, owned and operated by Holly Peters in Batley, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom. Established in 2012 Made by Hol provides individually handmade stationery, using the best high quality UK-sourced materials.

When asked what makes her site unique, Holly says, “It’s simple, sleek and easy to navigate, showing off my branding and colours easily… Since I made the new website with the Skyline theme, my business is busier than ever, and people are always telling me how good it looks compared to my competitors.”

We couldn’t agree more. Cheers to you Holly for a job well done. We hope this win brings your business more success.
