NECC button contest: We have a winner!
After much deliberation and several delays, Wesley Fryer and I have picked a winner for the NECC button design contest. We had 22 different button submissions. We narrowed it down to 5 finalists, did some rank ordering, and then I made the ultimate call (so blame me, not Wesley, if yours didn't get chosen). All the submissions were much better than anything I would have designed, so I'm glad that we had the contest!
Kudos to Bill Moseley for having the winning design. As promised, Bill receives everlasting fame, a CASTLE mug, one of the buttons, a t-shirt with his design on it, a picture of a monster from my 4-year-old
(Colin's the one with the curly hair), and a copy of Here Comes Everybody by Clay Shirky. Nice work, Bill!
[update: Bill has released this image with a Creative Commons license, saying, "Share it with anyone and everyone. This is about communicating the idea, right? If my image helps, then great!"]
A big, big thanks to everyone who participated. I will bring several hundred of the buttons to Edubloggercon 2008 and will give them out there and throughout NECC until they're gone. If your design wasn't selected, I'll save you a button in San Antonio. If you're not attending NECC and submitted a design, e-mail me your mailing address and I'll send you a button!
