This will probably be the last of the Design a Sock Contest entries for 2009.  I just wanted to post these goofy pictures we took when the contest winners came into get their prizes and money, to show you that real people really won this contest.  Sometimes you see a contest on the back of a bag of chips and the prizes are things like cars, and trips to the Bahamas.  Do people actually win those?  I’ve never seen or heard anything about the winners and it makes you wonder if they are really out there.  No need to wonder here, because here are the pictures to show you.

1st Place Winner, Jason Dyl gets $500 cash money!

Thank you all for your submissions, we had a great turn out Portland!  Sorry we weren’t able to respond to each artist personally, we just had too many entries, and not enough staff.  As always, keep your ideas coming, because even though the special contest isn’t running, we’re always accepting ideas.  Yay for socks and cash and prizes!!
