Philips Livable Cities Pinterest Contest





The sense of community in my city makes
it feel like home #pinyourcity


I love the lively night-life along the river,
it's always buzzing! #pinyourcity

What makes your city livable and lovable?

We believe that a great city shouldn't just be livable, it should be lovable too.

All cities have a variety of ingredients that make them unique, but what made you fall in love with your city?

The Philips Livable Cities #pinyourcity Contest searched for the most creative Pinterest boards that illustrate why a city is both livable and lovable through a series of images. The entries were judged by a panel of city experts.

Check out our video to see what it was all about!

Living by the sea means I can stay fit and
socialize in my retirement #pinyourcity

The way my city looks at night is so beautiful, I wouldn't want to live anywhere else #pinyourcity

Congratulations to the 10 #pinyourcity contest winners!

The #pinyourcity contest received over 250 entries from around the world. Of these, 25 boards were shortlisted and the panel of city experts determined the winning entries based on imagination, originality and the ability to inspire.


The overall winning board of the #pinyourcity contest:


Jammin' in Johannesburg
Johannesburg, South Africa

We saw a fantastic selection of entries in the #pinyourcity contest, but Jammin' in Johannesburg was the right winner! It shows many aspects of a city that we love - from the people that make a city, to the weather, the food and the street art. It also encapsulated the 'livable' - the accessibility, the vegetation and the beautiful city scape. This board is really inspirational and engaging, and shows a side of the city that isn't necessarily something you'd find in the average tourist guide!
