With over 2000 entries for the HavaianasHappy Sole Will Travel to Brazil” contest, 10 finalists are one step closer to an all-expense-paid holiday to the land of sunshine, olá Brazil!

“With the huge number of entries, the judges were really entertained and had a hard time judging,” says Anne Gonzalez, Managing Director of Havaianas Philippines.

The panel of judges, composed of Preview magazine and Style Bible Editor-in-Chief Pauline Suaco-Juan, Embassy of Brazil Diplomat Tiago Silva Almeida, Capoeira guru Professor Fantasma Coqueiro, famed food and travel blogger Anton Diaz, and Anne Gonzalez, picked the 10 happiest and most creative entries.

Of these 10 finalists—Ynez Alcid, Aurea Joanna Anden, Justin Ace de Guzman, Joya Genzola, Denise Gonzales, Farrah Lapinid, James Lu, Hannah Reyes, Katrina Suiza, and Maria Velasquez—the happiest sole, with three of his/her closest friends, will make it all the way to Brazil by online voting.

The winner will get to experience the beauty and culture of Brazil on a 12-day luxury vacation complete with travel must-haves from Havaianas, Sony, David & Goliath and Aloha Board Sports. Lucky, lucky, lucky!
