I take a left-field view of football via my art / illustrations. I've only 1.1k followers yet secured over 250 votes. Compare this to follower numbers for the other top 6 nominees - Opta-195k, 44Tom-47k, Machado-180k, LFC-738k, Arteta-27k. I have ran 4 seperate competitions offering my artwork as prizes and tried to involve my followers every step of the way. I believe i entered into the spirit of the competition fully rather than just seeing it as a polularity contest. First 125 votes = best :)
