Hi there Streak Freaks, firstly I would like to send my heartfelt thanks to all those who entered the 2017 Stoneytoons Caption Contest. This year, over 800 entries from 8 countries was received, a brilliant response that once again shows the engaging capacity of comic strips.

The standard of captioning was brilliant and it was no easy task sifting through the entries. This year was the most difficult year deciding a winner since commencing the CC in 2011.

We know humour is subjective and what is one persons Guffaw often falls flat on others. With such a large volume to sift through, the odds are against you. If any readers feel hard done by, it just may be that your caption was not unique… 
We had an inordinate amount of captions mentioning  “ draught excluders “ and lots of lines "about look what the cat dragged in “.
Many factors determine if your caption was considered by the cronies here at Stoneytoons HQ. 

Nonetheless I'm sure you'll agree these finalists below are all worthy winners!

And now…the envelope please….



Con Tsourtos  from Adelaide AUSTRALIA 

This caption made the judges laugh out loud. Firstly, It was completely unique. The humour had several elements that engaged the viewer. From the understated succinct response from the woman, to the completely absurd situation where as readers,
\you are asked to visualise how, where and why an Elephant would be using a litter box - this made the pay–off of this particular joke a winner.

Con wins the signed original artwork, a limited edition signed art print, a personally inscribed  “ Striving for Quantity” book, $100 iTunes Voucher, 10 x greeting cards, 

and a packet of my favourite biscuits that I like to have with my morning coffee plus the daily cartoon in his inbox for 1 year. Not to mention the fame!

Well done Con!
