Facebook Fan Photo Contest winners rewarded for snapshots

"Giba is Flying," by Socorro Zúñiga Vega
Lausanne, Switzerland, January 7, 2014 – The excitement of a live volleyball match can rarely be explained by words, but many fans tried to capture the thrill through photos throughout the year.

Whether using a cell phone camera or professional, fans Tweeted, Instagramed and created Facebook albums of photos from 2013 FIVB events. In efforts to find the best fan photos, FIVB conducted a Fan Photo Contest on Facebook, where hundreds of people participated.

Fans Socorro Zúñiga Vega and Anna Babik, received the most "likes" on their photos to win a collection of FIVB yearbooks, filled with the best official photos from FIVB volleyball and beach volleyball events since 2010.

Vega's photo, titled "Giba is Flying," was taken during a warm-up at the 2010 FIVB Volleyball Men's World Championship.

"I saw Giba to fly," he said. "That moment will stay in my memory and in my photo forever!"

Babik's photo of Poland's Michal Kadyiola and Jakub Szalankiewicz against Alexander Brouwer and Robert Meeuwsen of the Netherlands was taken on Court 2 at the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championships in Stare Jablonki, Poland.
