PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD

“People’s Choice Award – Fleafest 2017 – Canada 150”

The  Fleafest   “People’s Choice Award”  is  a unique and highly original sculpture commissioned by the Muskoka Seaflea Executive.  This prestigious award is presented to the individual whose seaflea has been determined to be the most popular of the day.  This is based on the total amount of votes cast by both participants and viewers.  This is truly a treasure of momentous and classical beauty never seen before now.

This year the 2017 People’s Choice Award Trophy is a masterful work of high art and craftsmanship!   Over seven years in the making, this priceless antiquity rivals the great works by Michelangelo, Rodin, Donatello and Bernini.   Created from forged Viking steel, bronze, gold and African Mahogany, this will go down in seaflea history as one of the greatest monuments of all time!

The Fleafest 2012  “People’s Choice Award” was the second of many unique and highly original sculptures commissioned by the Muskoka Seaflea Executive.    Melanie Mitchell was the winner of last years People’s Choice Award for the most popular seaflea.   Melanie became the second girl to win this event with her Pink-tastic “She-Flea”!    This makes two years in a row that girls have defeated the guys!    Girls ROCK!   This trophy featured an 18K solid gold hydroplane surrounded by a dazzling array of bronze plated spark plugs   All of these elements were lovingly mounted on (a sustainable procurement of) exotic Brazilian Walnut which was then hand rubbed with 52 coats of varnish.*  This is truly a treasure of momentous and classical beauty never seen before now.

The Fleafest 2011 “People’s Choice Award” was the first of many unique and highly original sculptures commissioned by the Muskoka Seaflea Executive.  This prestigious award was presented to the individual whose seaflea was determined to be the most popular of the day based on the total amount of votes cast by both participants and viewers.  The 2011 Award was assembled by utilizing two opposing 1962 Mercury dynafloat covers and the reflector from a miniature halogen pot light.  Both of these components were lovingly placed on hand carved solid wooden mounts.  The most unique feature of this “trophy – du – art” was the self-contained illumination system that created our own-patented “glow-of-control” atmospheric lighting effect.  Congratulations to Ellie Godfrey of Kahshe Lake who was our 2011 People’s Choice Award Winner.
