No, it's not the crisps. But this blog is still pretty tasty! Basically,if you like sock monkeys, cuddly monsters, freaky toys and quirky games/animations/pics then you will thoroughly enjoy Monster-Munch and it's links.
The judges have deliberated hard over the entries and have finally selected Gemma's entry above as the winner! "We liked this idea as it takes a well recognised icon and adds a twist. It would work well with or without a caption".
Additionally the judges selected four runners up which are listed below in no order.
By Bradders "This would make a really nice series of cards".
By Brent "Simple imagery that worked well in its own and without a caption".
By Agata "Nice idea and could work well in different scenarios".
By HB "Nice combination of graphics and type and a great idea".
The judges also wanted to mention the entry by Little Ted which they were very impressed by but felt it did not answer the brief specifically as it was not male directed.
