Bumper Sticker Contest Winner Announced!

Updated: Jun 30, 2018

Over a month ago, I announced a contest wherein a lucky reader could win a bumper sticker identifying them as a Ghostbuster. Obviously, these certifications should not be handed out arbitrarily. What if they fell into unqualified hands? Lives and property damage could be on the line. I needed to know that the interested parties were equipped to carry the paranormal torch. Photographic proof was required, and the best picture would snag the sticker. After what was no doubt an agonizing wait for millions, the results are in!

Yeah, the photo is recycled from the original contest posting, but I couldn't give away the winning picture in the preview. Just between us, the car is never this clean; I washed it specifically for the photo. There's little incentive to keep a Saturn looking good, and I'm not sure it's actually possible.

The grand (and in fact only) prize goes to Dave Bansette from Canada. I never considered international shipping, Dave, but in the immortal words of Dr. Peter Venkman, "You... you've earned it." Dave tells me that the following photo was taken four years ago, long before I got into the work. Very impressive! Keep an eye on your Royal mailbox.

Honorable mention goes to Van Loggins, presumably of the USA, who looks like a true Ghostbusting veteran in his Ecto Goggles! Van gets props for using this photo as his profile for social media. ("Props." See what I did there?)

Thanks to everyone who showed a passing interest in my little contest! I may do another one sometime, if I feel like it. How's that for non-committal?
