Why do I hate running competitions? Because I have to pick a winner. Or, more accurately, because I have to tell a bunch of other people they didn’t win. I hate doing that. Especially when I’ve run a competition where people have taken the time to put some creativity into their response.
I really wish I could send everybody a prize. Because in a very important way, everyone who enters is a winner. But in a far more accurate way, most entrants end up being losers. Anyway, as I’ve mentioned previously, I’ve been running a competition on YouTube where people who don’t have a video camera (or have a crappy one) can win a new digital camera from me.
I’ve finally gotten around to narrowing the entrants (about 20 of them) down to five finalists. This was not an easy task and would have been bloody impossible without the input provided by my lovely girlfriend.
For those who would like to help me out by providing some input, here are the finalists:
Damn these people and their creativity making it so hard for me to choose!
