Good luck and congrats in advance to all who entered, I hope you all had as much fun as I did trying to think of things to do.
If you READ, the winner will be chosen Monday around Noon.
Most of the entrants that I see/saw were funny, but some were tasteless (note the unmoderated board posts)

But, on a little more concerned note; to Woot! personnel, I do not believe that the Osama=>OJ GAME should win solely because this was an image contest, not a game contest. If it were a game (in which there would be far less entrants, might I add) I could have made one in flash all weekend. So please consider images only. =P No hate towards the maker, very nice job.

yeah, sorry. I need my sleep. I stayed up for this?

I just threw in the game for fun. I did also enter an Osma to OJ image. But now for more important matters; Woot has a new AUCTION. The Razor is dead. Long live the MP player. Actually, this is what they should have put in this weekend: the MP3 player imbedded in the razor so that the razor could be useful!

I can see it, halfway down the road, shaving, suddenly Westlife starts blasting out of the razor, you flench, throw it, swerve, and kill a small kitten, who I might add was the winner of the worst cat hair contest back on page 9! You kitten killer!

I talked to our judges a few minutes ago and they are furiously speeding over to the mountain time zone to give themselves another hour to decide. Looks like it'll be 1pm CST now for winner announcement :x

(yes, we thought that Osama -> OJ photo looked familiar and it's limited new photoshop-ness was/is taken into account)

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:
http://www.ourladyswarriors.org/images/jesus.jpg

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:
http://www.woot.com/images/USSRazor_original.jpg

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]

We decided to go with paypal for winners to make it more real. Plus, our coupon code system only allows codes to work when total price is less than the coupon code amount. Therefore, $100 winner would have to wait for >$100 item to use it.

Once we make the coupon codes more like multiple use gift certificates then we'll be able to go back to store credit.
