After challenging people to share a photo of themselves helping others to discover the fun of code, we received scores of fantastic entries on Instagram and Facebook for this year’s YouthSpark #WeSpeakCode Photo Contest. Entries were submitted from countries across Asia Pacific, including Australia, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Nepal, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Vietnam.
Three grand prize winners have been selected from entries submitted to both Facebook and Instagram – for a total of six grand prize winners! Whether coding with children, friends or grandparents; in class, outside or in transit, the winners showed us just how passionate they are in sharing their love of code with others.
