We gave you two days at Singapore's leading tech mall to meet the Cover Girl Search gang, get closer to our sponsors, and place your live vote for a chance to win a $5,000 tech bundle (see the bottom of this story for a full prize list).
The winner of the Cover Girl Search will be announced at the grand finale on June 4th so if you haven't voted yet, do it now before it's too late. And if you didn't reach Funan DigitaLife Mall for the live voting and exclusive tech deals, here's a coffee-break glimpse of what you missed...
They Took The Stage with Power 98
You know by now: this contest is more than a beauty pageant. Stuff's looking for brains too, as our winning Cover Girl for the August issue will also land a blogging contract with these very pages.
Power 98's JK and Jacqui put the girls through their paces on stage to prove to our readers and voters that they're as tech-savvy as they say they are. No one likes a pageant based on looks alone! Read the girls' tech blogs for Stuff by clicking here.
They TOOK The Floor
Everyone loves a good photo-opp. Especially when Stuff's Cover Girl Search contestants are in the frame.
And the booth!
Unsurprisingly, the giant Stuff cover was in demand the whole day.
Not only among our readers and the cover girls, but among friends, families, sponsors and dogs, too.
You can see all the booth shots from the weekend by checking the Facebook album.
Apps, Tiles and a Life-Size HALO dude
One of the main Cover Girl Search sponsors, Nokia, was also on the floor giving readers hands-on demos of the countless apps available for Windows phones (hey, did we say countless? It's not quite countless, there's over 240,000!).
The Buy One Get One Free deals were a nice touch - as was the life-size Halo chap and a Lumia 1320 lucky draw.
Powered By Canon
And what good is a photobooth without a top of the range DSLR camera and Pixma printer for souvenir pics?
The instant prints were an instant success. The crowds also loved getting hands-on with the latest Canon models, like the Powershot G1X Mark II, the LEGRIA Mini X video recorder, the 1200D and the Selphy 910 portable printer.
Pioneer smashed it!
As well as showing off the latest Clubsound Headphones, the DDJ-WEGO and introducing us to the designers of their new fashion range, Pioneer brought along their 2014 Controller Champion DJ Mad Jester to tear down the Mall for an hour on both days. Awesome.
More after the break...
Our laptop and tablet sponsor Lenovo were also pulling out the stops - they were offering free 32GB thumbdrives with every purchase of a Lenovo laptop all weekend. Our Cover Girls Jessica and Mara seemed pretty impressed...
Ice cream freebies from Zalora?
What a touch! With every download of the Zalora app came a free super-yummy icecream.
Of course, the kids loved it. EVERYONE loved it. But we loved it more.
Download the Zalora app right here. No ice cream this time, though, we're afraid. Just an extra handy shopping experience.
Phantom Models were on the hunt!
There's super model material at your house party. Who you gonna call (in the Ghostbusters theme tune)? You guessed it, Phantom.
Singapore's leading modelling agency was on the hunt again - this time at the Live Voting weekend. As if ten tech-savvy Stuff cover girls weren't enough! These guys are always recruiting. Which makes them a popular choice for magazine editors like us.
The whole point?
You came, you saw, you voted! Using the Nokia-powered voting site, exisiting readers (and new ones!) placed their votes using the Windows tiles-inspired platform. "Windows tiles," you say? Even on iOS or Android? Yes! Try it here and enter the $5,000 tech bundle lucky draw!
