Winners of the Official Bacon Photo Contest

bacon-photo Sean and I finally picked the winners last night for the Official Bacon Photo Contest during Bacon LIVE. We planned to do it at the BRBT but ran out of time to print and prepare the photos.

This was the first photo contest we did so we learned a lot. When we do this next year we are going to change a few things.

Here are the things we will change:

  1. Fewer Categories – Two of the categories (Creative and Pandering) only had one submission and one (Sexy) had none. So next year we will only have Artsy, Funny, and Sexy (just in case).
  2. File Size and Format – Since I was planning to print these out for the event, I was sad to notice that a few people sent me postage stamp size images. This was not there fault since I never said what I needed. Next year I am going to ask for at least 150 dpi and the smallest side can be no less than 5 inches.
  3. Stick to my Deadlines – Next year I hope I will be able to announce the winners the day I say I will. I think with the changes we are going to make this should not be a problem.

So without any more excuse here are the 2009 winners:

Thanks to everyone who participated in the contest. Look for your prizes (Free Bacon and a Larger then Life Print) in the mail in the next few weeks. Enjoy Bacon!
