Well, they did receive Honorable Mentions, though. I had a conversation about this with LL Bein a while back and she indicated that it was unofficial policy that photoshopped entries are welcome but don't qualify for medals since it is, after all, a caption contest, and I'm okay with that – happy to appreciate them on their own merits. And three of the four are right there on the first page anyway if you just scroll down. Would have been kinda redundant to post any twice on the same page.
hello, i wrote up a thingy about what fod was like for me. i tried to put pictures in between the words to make it less tldnr. the pictures are my favorite captions on the contests i hosted back in the day. trip down memory lane or narcissistic hate speech? you be the judge.
