FEECO and Where Did You See Me Announce Winners for First Contest

Press release from: Feeco International

Several months ago, FEECO joined forces with Where Did You See Me, a web-based company that aims to photographically document the transportation of large equipment through contests. FEECO was the first company ever to host a WDYSM contest: rotary ore drums heading from Wisconsin to South Africa.

Where Did You See Me banners were put on each rotary drum, inviting anyone who saw one of the drums to take a picture and submit it to the WDYSM website. As the drum made its way across Wisconsin, FEECO received a huge response from people spotting the drum. As the end of August brought the contest to a close, winners were announced, and prizes are being sent out for the top five photos.

The first prize winner won with 67 votes on his photo. In a statement about the contest, the winner said, “I thought it was a great idea for getting people involved with tracking the progress of the transport. I was amazed at the size of the drum and the transport truck. I wouldn’t have guessed they could have got it through that part of town. Watching them negotiate the small intersections was fun.”

FEECO received an overwhelmingly positive response from participants, especially the local community. “We’d do it again in a heartbeat,” said President of FEECO, Dan Madigan. “We were truly touched by the response we received on the transportation of these drums. It was a lot of fun to see how people responded to it.”
