    Okay... so before I begin announcing, I just have to say that this is the worst part of the contests we run. I love giving out the prizes, but I hate breaking some people's hearts. To those who didn't win, don't give up hope... I will post more details later. clap.gif


    There are a total of 5 honorable mention winners. Lets start with one at random.

    This hilariously awesome shirt was designed by Tim Weaver (http://danielaweaver.smugmug.com/ )

    Sure to be a big hit at photo geek gatherings, you will look hip and sexy wearing this in Glacier National Park at the next Dgrin shootout. thumb.gifclap.giflust:D

    Sometimes simple designs say it best.

    Dee Golden shows her SmugMug love iloveyou.giflust with this heartwarming (pun intended) shirt, which nets her an Honorable Mention.

    There were two Honorable Mention winners that we probably can't post on our gear store due to copyright issues, but we loved both of them enough that we are still awarding them Honorable Mention. thumb.gif

    You won't ever see any SmugMug employees wearing these shirts.... no sir, not us. Uh huh. :nono:nono:bsblbl.gif

    The first one is the Smuggy Pac-Man one from "Rhuarc".

    Several gamer geeks (myself included) really thought this was awesome. PrimeTime insists this was the best design. :D

    Because of the use of logos, I doubt we can actually put this in our gear store. But you miiiiiiiiiight just see some laptop stickers adorning SmugMug laptops the next time you see us. mwink.gif

    lets see, by my count that puts us up to our last Honorable Mention, right? :D

    The last (though they were listed in no particular order!) of the Honorable Mentions was created by someone who gets the distinguished honor of being the only contestant to win two prizes. clap.gif

    (I know, thats bad news for everyone who already was announced. But at least the tension is gone now, right?rolleyes1.gif)

    While the PacMan shirt might not end up in our store, Rhuarc's Shoot Happens shirt will.

    ALRIGHT!! Now we are to the big prizes.

    drums.gifdrumsdrums.gifdrumsdrums.gif

    Okay. Third Prize wins a brand spanking new copy of Photoshop CS2. (Ironically, the program they probably used to create the design. In which case, it is negotiable! rolleyes1.gif)

    Everyone give it up to Rich Wilson for his "Distinctively Smug" line of clothing. clap.gifclapclap.gif

    Originally slated to be the "weak" 1.66Ghz Core Duo Mac Mini, the Second Place Prize underwend and executive override to become the beefy 1.83Ghz Core Duo Mac Mini.

    Easily the smallest and sexiest machine on the market, it is definitely a prize to covet.

    Proving that sometimes simpler is better, Mike Lane takes home the Mac Mini with his "See more of me on SmugMug" line. :ivar

    Are you sure you guys don't want to wait until tomorrow to hear the grand prize? It would be soooooo much more gratifying. You know it would be. :D
