The first Woot Photoshop contest is over! The contest ended with over 150 unique entries to choose from, causing the judges much headache and heartburn, but finally, the results are in.
Honestly, there were a few great entries, and a bunch of crap. I convinced our boss that if we threw more money at the winners, we'd get better stuff next time around. Amazingly, he agreed!
First place gets $100, a Woot hat and shirt (instead of the $20 we mentioned before), second place gets $50, and third place gets $20!
On with the winners:
Third place, winner of $20
[size=18:6d175a23fe]linnaeus with "Pimp My Shaver"[/size:6d175a23fe]
Spoiler on the back, dub spinners on the blades, and a DVD player, so the kids in the back don't get bored while you shave. Sadly, I fear this will seem less absurd as time goes on.
Second place, winner of $50
[size=18:6d175a23fe]mrtanooki with "Jesus Agrees"[/size:6d175a23fe]
We managed to find the original shot this was based on:
The clean chin and glowing smile is obvious, but check out the handiwork done on his eyebrows! Nicely done, Mr. Tanooki.
First place, winner of $100 (a Woot t-shirt and hat), and champion of the first ever Woot Photoshop contest...
[size=24:6d175a23fe]Popsmear with "USSRazor"[/size:6d175a23fe]
Again we rounded up his original here:
Truthfully, I'm more impressed with the mad skizills of the Jesus pic, but there's just something about Stalin holding high the goo-squirting, triple-head-action, as-capitalist-as-you-can-get Norelco that makes me chuckle every time. And that chuckling equals cash in the pocket (or at least in the email account) for Popsmear, who will receive $100, once we figure out who the heck he really is.
Every contest has a first place prize for the big winner, but our contest has a special last place prize! As creator of the most entertainingly awful entries, [size=18:6d175a23fe]Woot member PeePaul wins a brand new Ab Tilt![/size:6d175a23fe] Check out the entire PeePaul series:
Congratulations, all four of you, and thanks to everyone else for entering. We'll be contacting the winners via your Woot email address to send you the prizes.
[size=18:6d175a23fe]Spread the word, there will be a new Photoshop contest every Friday,
and these $100/$50/$20 cash prizes will stick around.[/size:6d175a23fe]
