In this age of globalization do you want to preserve your culture? We invited you to share your thoughts and tell us what is so special from your culture that is worth preserving in our QC ''Bring my Culture to the Future''. Thank you all for posting the ideas and we have enjoyed getting to know each and everyone's culture.

Special thank you also goes to our judges, who have been impressed by your suggestions and had a hard time choosing a winner. This time the honor of selecting the winner went to: Fahd Masood, Shweta Birla, Darko Mojsoski, Maggie Peng and Tanja Mozetič.

And the winner is.......Afrinah Ahmed: Traditional Bangels & Hina.

''This picture is an amazing depiction of one of the many facets of the sub continental culture. It is unique in its own regard and exhibits a fascinating art, with so much emotions going behind this. The ‘Hina and Bangles’ basically depict a feeling of happiness which Challenge: Future is striving to spread in this world. Apart from this, the originality of the picture itself made the selection of this picture possible.''

Congratulation Afrinah, you have won the most votes and capture our hearts. In the future we hope to see more from your culture and yourself. We are happy to present you with Slovene tradition gift, lace from Idrija. Please, click here to contact us for delivery details.

Also, praised and inspired were the pictures of Yen Chin Liew for Chinese New Year: ''It’s a culture where people like to be back at home, wherever they are in the world, it’s a reunion for the family and friends, taking out the time from the busy routine hectic schedule to be with their loved ones, whatever be the reason – good food or being together, is just the chance to be with them.''. Namaskar by Reena Kataria recieved positive feedback ''Every culture and every individual follows some principles. Namaskar is one that speaks about equality and respect, that why I believe it is important for this tradition to be sustained and spread worldwidely.'' as well as Bible of Humanity by Harshit Kachchhi ''I believe there are a lot of things that everyone can learn from this book. Definitely worth being part of the future.''

Now let's enjoy the compiled video of the top solutions.
