These are the winners of the small and well thought-out competition I ran on Thursday. In no particular order:
Comment 22, Duane, with ‘“Things to ‘Be’ in church” eg. Cleaner/Treasurer/Gardener/Preacher/Nice old lady/Unruly child/Pious/FakePious/Disruptive/Latecomer/Snorer/Singer/Giver/Storyteller/Newsletter writer etc ‘. Definite calendar potential.
Comment 29, rory, with ‘How to tell that you’re …a lay preacher …on the flower roster …new in the parish …a church warden‘. Similar idea but with a great heading, “How to tell that you’re…”. These first two may well end up being ‘the’ idea.
Comment 23, Aaron, with ‘The major feast or fast for each month‘. A bit similar to 2008, but it sparked off some good ideas for a future calendar.
Comment 13, Fat Roland, with the bizarre and intriguing ‘Twelve pet services‘, but also ‘A basic guide to theology, Dave Walker style‘, which I would love to do if I could be clever enough to think up the content, but probably not this time.
Finally, Comment 18, Simon, with ‘What the clergy keep hidden in the secret pockets of a cassock‘ – not an idea for a calendar perhaps, but one I will certainly use for an individual cartoon.
I’ll contact these 5 people for their addresses after I’ve been to the supermarket and done my chores. In the meantime a huge thank you to everyone who has entered – there are lots of other ideas there which I may well use even if they aren’t ideas for entire calendars.
As a thank you to those who posted on the thread at any point up until now but didn’t win – I’ll send you a few postcards if you e-mail a postal address to info (at) cartoonchurch.com with the heading ‘February 09 competition’. Thank you!
