And the Winner is: Egg-ry Birds by the Miami Monks.
Congratulations to Jake Monk and Lacee Monk. Hard to believe that Katie Bowlby has been dethroned, but the Miami Monks have won the 2012 Easter Egg competition by a landslide garnering twelve (12) first place votes and one second place vote.
Eggr-ry Birds also pulled in the Award for Most Comments and received the best comment.
The winner emeritus earning the Best Comment Award, Katie Bowlby, offered, “I admit, I'm impressed. But the words I uttered when I saw this weren't very Easterly, so I can't vote for it.”
Ready to Hatch!! came in a strong second place.
Congratulations to Andrew and Jody. This entry reminds us all of the pig and the chicken story. Co-created in every way, Ready to Hatch!! shared origination rights, creative cooperation and earned the Award for Best Use of Natural Materials in creation of an original entry. (Note to Robin from Karl, my belly is already that big; give up now.) There truly was a commitment to this entry.
Lady Egga rounds out this year’s placers in third place.
Mary Monk slams a solid third place showing, winning awards in the categories of Best Use of Alternate Protein and Best Use of the same Old Background Two Years Running, Mary Monk captured the artistic spirit of this year’s entries.
Honorable mention goes to Big Handsome
The House of Bowlby earns Honorable Mention and receives the Award: Best Homer Entry of 2012.
