2012 Highest Voted Kinbaku/Shibari Image

shibari rope corsetThis year the winner of the 'Public Vote' (Fetlife User's Favourite Image) was awarded to Ruairidh who both rigged and shot this photo of Yggdrasil. It is a beautiful and unique rope corset that obviously appealed to many people... enhanced by the gorgeous Yggdrasil we are sure.

2012 JRPPC - "Highest Voted"
Entry, Rope & Photo by: Ruairidh | Model: Yggdrasil

This image took the lead on the votes in the first week and held 1st place right through the entire competition. This year Fetlife's "Kinky & Popular" feature obviously assisted exposure for this great shibari photo, and whilst we 'hope' everyone commenting was aware of the competition running, in the end it is about sharing the beauty of kinbaku with an ever wider audience.

 

2012 Top 6 Shibari/Kinbaku Photos

Despite many agonising hours, the Jade Rope team was unable to reduce all of the amazing shibari/kinbaku photo entires to a top 6. We simply couldn't form a consensus. So this year there was a top 8. The winner you have seen included, so here are the remaining seven best Kinbaku/Shibari photos of 2012.
