Bill and Ben cartoon caption competition

Start date: 1 March 2012.

Close date: 31 March 2012 17:00hrs (UCT +11hrs). Winner will be announced on the website on 6 April 2012.


  1. You can enter as many times as you want (wow that’s cool, tell me more)
  2. No submissions after the close date will be accepted (better get cracking then)
  3. You must be a subscriber to the site to enter (yes, there’s always a catch, but you can always unsubscribe once you’ve won! and subscribing is FREE)
  4. In the event you are the lucky winner, I will initially notify you offline by email (that’s why you need to subscribe, so I have your email). If you want the prize sent out to you, you’ll have to provide me with a postal address. If you have a blog or business website you wish me to refer to in the winning announcement, you can then also provide me with the link details.
  5. Don’t panic if you submit a joke and you don’t see it appear on this page. I will be collating them in the background and publish all suitable (see #6) jokes when the winner is announced. After all, you don’t want someone to steal your idea, finesse it and then win instead of you.  To get a feel for your chances, I will be regularly updating the number of submissions received below.
  6. The joke needs to be classified G / PG.  Although I might have fun reading X, I won’t be publishing them.
  7. Judges decision will be final. In the event of a tie break, don’t worry, we have 3 judges. This panel consists of Marti, Bill and Ben the little green alien men.

So what are you waiting for? Start entering by ‘Leaving a reply’ below.
