Beach Towel Contest: We Have a Winner!

August 3, 2011 | by

This was a tough one. We asked you to photoshop an author of your choice onto our beach towel. The entries were truly staggering in their creativity and execution (as you can see for yourselves.) But there can only be one grand-prize beach-towel winner. First, our wonderful runners-up, all of whom win ever-chic Paris Review tees.

“Bukowski Relaxing” by b_lazy.

“Gabriel García Márquez” by Anita Scharf.

“Dostoevsky” by htess.

And our grand-prize winner ...

“Ernest Hemingway” by Jack_Around.

Thank you to everyone who made this such a success! Like I said, this wasn’t easy—but we were not going to argue with a man pointing a gun at us.
