Last week, we decided to hold a little Photoshop contest for our readers with a grand prize of a ticket to our Pants Party 3D on June 23rd ($35 monetary value, infinite fun value), and a Forward Fabrics shirt for the runner up. Entrants were given the amazing Morry Gash (lolz again... Gash!) photograph to the right as a basis for a funny Photoshop redesign of their own.
lots of submissions from a whole bunch of readers throughout the week, and we didn't even have to be desperate about getting people to participate at all. Chalk up another successful promotion for the MPD boys!
Actually, participation only climbed to upwards of three people. Yikes! Anyway, since we promised stuff to people, I thought we'd share the efforts and name the runner-up and winning submissions below.
I did this one for fun.
This one comes from a Philadelphia-based podcast called NQA Podcast. It was the first one I received and when I opened it, I actually laughed for a while. I thought Super HGH only came in pill form.
Jared B.'s surfing dog.
Jared B. reminding most of us a man in his seventies is in better shape than we are.
Jared B. again! I like how the green bar overlaps Vince. I would've picked this as the winner, but I thought it wouldn't make sense to people who didn't know what the guy who runs this site looks like. He looks like this.
Cindy L. with the first of two similar-but-awesome submissions.
RUNNER UP: Cindy L.'s other submission is good for second place. Notice the faint racing sausages looming ominously in the background. Great stuff, Cindy.
And the winner is...
Jared B. with his fourth entry. Between making fun of Front Row Amy, the attention to detail and the concept itself, this was impossible to resist picking, even though I know Jared. Whatever, three people entered. I don't have to explain myself.
Congrats to our winners. The rest of you should make sure to enter the next time I try a contest, which will probably never happen again.
