It was really great to see the variety of responses to the Online Humour Card competition. It was interesting to see that people entered both caption responses to the photos and also illustrated concepts of their own.
The judges selected the entry above by Cows In Cars as the winner as they really liked the style and the format and they felt that this illustration style would offer something different to our range. They thought that the story board style would work really well as a small range.
The judges also selected four runners up:
We thought that the caption on this was funny and there is potential for it to be developed into a mini range of similar ideas.
We really liked the simple illustration style combined with a quite light hearted caption. The composition of the text and image create a quite fresh and contemporary look.
We thought that this topic was a funny one to pick! Good looking and use of humorous daily occurrence's. We also thought that the illustration style was different and interesting.
The caption here works really well with the photograph and is quick and easy to get.
A big well done to our winner and runners up and a huge thank you to everyone who submitted entries.
