Weekend Contest Winners: 'Steam'


For the first time in a while, I ran a weekend contest! With three entries the uptake was a little slow, but I guess that makes sense as it was quite unannounced. I'll do another one next weekend and will try to get someone to sponsor a nice prize! (Contact me if you'd like to contribute something ;-).

The winner is Jānis Grīnvalds's manhole cover. He has the best looking steam (although it could be tweaked further I guess):


Andre Strydom did an awesome job reading about the 'Sinterklaas' fest here in the Netherlands and nailed the scene, but the steam was a bit too cartoony for this contest I think:


Gspin gets an honourable mention - I really like his result, but the entry came in too late:


Thanks so much for participating everyone! See you next week :)
