As you can see, this is a complete no brainer. Many will enter, many will be marvelled at, kudos and happy warm fuzzy thoughts will rain down upon all that enter.
Unlike our usual contests, you do not need to be present to win. Enter as many times as you’d like.
The grand prize winner will win Left 4 Dead – Courtesy of TheJib. There will be additional prizes given out. The categories have not been finalized but even if yours sucks, its worth sending in. =)
