Congratulations to Edward Babb, the winner of our “Why Cape Town is cool in winter” competition.

We asked you to tell us why Cape Town is cool in winter in 140 characters or less over Twitter, Facebook or e-mail. Entries poured in and were judged on originality.

Edward’s winning entry was impressively poetic, given the 140-character limit: “Mist plays on mntn peaks, cool sea spray flecks my cheeks, billowed clouds & azure light, Cape Town in winter, whattasight.” 

He wins an Acer notebook worth R2 500 for his creative entry.

“Hoorah! Poetry pays!” says Edward. “I’ve realised now that I’ve won a notebook I’m obliged to write more…”

The following entries also caught the judges’ attention:

takkie13: “CT is cool in winter deepening the natural colours of nature reminding us to take note of the spectacular picture it paints.”

Wendy: “CT is the only city with a human-magnet built into its pavements that gets activated whenever the sun makes an unexpected appearance.”

Fred_Roed: “In winter, Cape Town is not only cool; it’s sporty, stormy, friendly, fiery, fun, windy, wet… and best of all, cosy!”
