THIS CONTEST HAS CLOSED. SEARCH PUK AWARDS IN OUR SIDEBAR SEARCH FEATURE AND YOU WILL SEE THE RESULTS.
For the uninitiated, The PUK Awards are named for our most beloved reader Peter UK, who sadly passed away in November of 2009, well before his time. One of his last comments was “Make The Bastards Live By Their Own Words.” It’s been repeated here often. It’s the inscription on the PUK award.
Peter split his time primarily between the blog Just One Minute and iOwnTheWorld. JOM satiated his superior intellect and iOTW satiated his outrageous and ribald side.
We are forever indebted to Clarice Feldman for introducing Peter to us.
Here is the original post announcing his passing. Peter preferred to remain low-key while he was a commenter. In his passing we revealed his true identity. Read the post for the fascinating life story of Peter Bocking.
The PUK award is given to the best conservative graphic image of the year, nominated by the readers of iOTW. In the comments of this post paste the url to an image that you feel best represents the right sticking it to the left. (Please, do your best to nominate images from 2010.) If there are multiple images on the page, please leave a short description of the image you’re nominating.
iOTW images are eligible, but this is open to the entire blogosphere. Try to nominate images that have credits on them. We will disqualify any image that cannot be tracked back to an author or a website. You may nominate your own imagery and your own blog imagery.
The iOTW staff will pick the top 25 finalists. The judging from that point will be handled by the esteemed William A. Jacobson of Legal Insurrection.
One winner will be chosen and four runner-ups. The five nominator’s whose pictures are chosen will receive a prize to be named later.
The nomination process will be for one week. This post will be bumped every day until next Monday, 11:59 PM.
