Naughty & Nice: Dark Reading Caption Contest Winners

It was a tough job choosing among our strongest field yet, with more than 100 submissions. And the winners are ...

Bill Gregory, director of technology at Jones Day law firm in Cleveland, Ohio took the top honors with a 3D printing theme in our holiday cartoon caption contest. Bill, also known as WilliamG441 within the Dark Reading community, earned a $25 Amazon gift card for his winning caption, penned below by cartoonist John Klossner.

Honorable mentions – and there were too many to mention – and $10 Amazon gift cards go to two runners-up: Claude Jones (ClaJones), network engineer, Sacramento, CA for "Not quite sure, but he asked me what a Bitcoin was and where to insert it?" and ChrisGlitz’s "Yeah, my cookies were deleted too!!”

Many thanks to everyone who entered the contest with all their clever puns and observations, and to our loyal readers who cheered the contestants on. Also a shoutout to our judges, John Klossner, and the Dark Reading editorial team: Tim Wilson, Kelly Jackson Higgins, Sara Peters, and yours truly. If you haven’t had a chance to read all the 107 entries, be sure to check them out today.
