After a month-long competition, Specsavers Opticas have announced the winners of the first Spectacle Wearer of the Year Awards in Spain. The first prize has been awarded to Daniela Mari Curtis from Torrevieja, who submitted a lovely picture of herself in her bold, dark rimmed glasses.

The judges thought the photo was really natural and that Daniela summed up clearly and simply the reasons many people love their glasses.

She commented; “They make the most of my eyes. They represent who I am, I don’t feel the same without my glasses on.” Daniela has won a makeover, photo-shoot and a pair of designer frames in celebration of all those people in Spain who look amazing in their glasses.

There are also 7 semi-finalists who have all won one pair of designer glasses with single vision lenses worth159€

  • Aina Bibiloni Valle, Mallorca
  • Salome Aguilar Sanchez¸Marbella
  • Sarah May Lofthouse, Fuengirola
  • Mrs Poulter, Torrevieja
  • Kathleen Misson, Javea
  • Nigel Webb, Calpe
  • Manuel Fajardo, Benidorm

They were chosen as runners up as they are all really proud of wearing glasses and have given great reasons why they love them. Sarah May Lofthouse – “I can see better and look good at the same time :)”, Nigel Webb “My glasses are an extension of my personality. I like unusual colours and people are always complimenting me on my glasses. So I get to talk to people I would not normally speak to.”
