"I’m thrilled that my spec selfie will now help others in need. I only recently found out that I needed glasses, but they have already become my statement accessory. I instantly feel more confident as soon as I put them on. The photo I posted for my entry was my way of showing off my new look. I hope that by being part of this competition I am also encouraging others to feel more confident wearing their glasses too!"
Phillip Lee Dupuy (Phil), 28, Windsor, Vic
"I’m so excited to be a finalist in the competition, and it’s great to know that it is helping others in need. I love wearing glasses because they add something to my look, even if I’m feeling a bit tired I can pop on some specs and feel instantly more stylish. I’d describe my style as geek chic and I like big, bold frames similar to Clark Kent and Matt Bomer – classic but always on trend."
Kylee Mckillop, 32, Meadow Springs, WA
"I love to match my frames to my personality and see them as an expression of my style. I love that glasses can change your look completely – the more styles the better!
To be a finalist in this competition is very exciting. I’ve devoted my life to my two kids so being a finalist in the competition means I have the opportunity to do something for me. I love wearing glasses, not only to be able to see clearly but I love how glasses give my face different dimensions and depth."
Timothy Tan (Tim), 31, Seven Hills, NSW
"I love the versatility of glasses - a fashion accessory that also protects my eyes from the sun’s UV rays. I recently bought my baby boy a pair of sunnies because you’re never too young to start looking after your vision! To be a finalist in this competition is very exciting, it will be an interesting story to tell my kids."
Jillian Jackson, 65, Sandy Bay, Hobart
“I am so excited to be a finalist in the competition, and it is great to know that it is helping others in need. My glasses are beautiful but also comfortable, and I get lots of comments about how good they look, which makes me feel even more confident wearing them! I have never been a finalist in a competition before, so this means a lot to me, and I hope I can encourage others to feel confident wearing their glasses too.”
