And the winner is...

Congratulations go to Teevio! His winning entry has won him an Interactive Pass for SXSW 2007.

Many thanks to everybody that took the time to put in an entry.

Putting this little contest together was fun and was a nailbiter right to the end. It demonstrated that my wife and I are diametrically opposite when it comes to what we were looking for. She, being ever so smart, thought of a point system that we'd give our top 3 choices. Combine the points and you'd have your winner. Problem was, we picked completely different top 3. We had a tie.

I enrolled the help of Nathan Smith to come up with his top 3 in hopes of breaking the deadlock. Luckily, Nathan picked favourites from both my wife and my list, breaking the tie, and allowing us to declare a winner.

To everybody making it out to SXSW, I look forward to meeting you there!

Nice looking shirt design. Congrats to Teevio on winning.

So where can I go buy one and would you be inclined to show us the runners-up, particularly those in each of your top 3?

Just by way of disclaimer, I didn't enter - I'm not hoping to see something I did - just interested in the others.

Very nice. Wonder how it would look on a dark gray shirt?

See you in Austin.

Nicely done Teevio. Looks great. Now you just have to get a site up for all that nice referral traffic you're sure to generate :)

Get Snookered at Snook.ca,...I did! Damn! I just found out about your contest. Maybe next year.

Nice entries!

@Nathan, here are the rankings:

Me: Justin Palmer, Teevio, David Mead
Wife: Gonzaman, Chance G, Hugh
Nathan: Teevio, DJ, Chance G

The point system we had was 3pts for 1st place, 2pts for 2nd, and 1pt for 3rd.

It was hard for me because I bounced around thinking, "if I was to buy a shirt to wear, what would it look like?" My wife on the other hand, picked ones where the messaging really resonated with what she felt Snook.ca was all about.

@Michael: In the final files Teevio provided, there's a black shirt version and I must say, it looks nice. :)

@everybody: Just by way of interest, if I had Snook.ca shirts printed up, who'd buy one?

Am I allowed to say that I would most certainly buy a shirt? I think I might like the dark one better too...

And again, thank you for the ticket!

Great stuff man, I had fun. Nice work on all the shirts and congrats Teevio, loved the design!

Congratulations, Teevio! very cool design! The other designs are very nice too.

Admittingly, I wouldn't buy one, but that's more because of me not liking to be a walking advertisement :p (Regardless of how cool a design is)

Congrats to Teevio and the nice design! Thanks for the opportunity Jonathan.

Someone needs to do a "Snooookie Crisp" shirt.
