You've been waiting for it and you've been asking us about it over and over again. Here they are!...

You've been waiting for it and you've been asking us about it over and over again. Here they are! The final, grand winners of Petite Idol Studio - Summer Paradise Ed. 2018 🎉

Going through all the entries and rating them to make a decision was something really nice to do, but it was also a very time-consuming task, so setting that time aside was a bit of a challenge for our staff teams. That's why we're only sharing the results now.

The judges were staff members and contributors of all our websites and they made sure to follow the rules and guidelines to make a fair, unbiased judgement.

It was tough because all the entries were really amazing!

The final ranking is truly impressive and we're really happy and proud to have organized this contest and to see the community come together and create beautiful things.

We all hope you will love and support our lovely winners as much as we love them!
