While I was away on holiday, I asked Scamp readers to send in an image on the theme of "Advertising".

There were 86 entries, many of them great.

Here are the winners, chosen by me, Scowling A.D. and super-sub Alastair Merry.

3rd Place

"Looks like Clemmow Hornby Inge are having a refit" says David Bradbury, who took this shot.

2nd Place

This one is from Stefan Hawes, in Vancouver. "One senses a feeling of uncertainty as they put up the primary awning", he writes, "leading them to hedge their bets with the secondary trim. 'Holy crap. What if there aren't enough dancers out there?'


"Advertising's all about believing" is the simple but undeniably true comment that accompanied this entry from English Tim.

Agree with the verdict? Disagree?

Personally, I love that 'Believe Believe' shot.

In our line of work we promise people so much, and so often... and so rarely with any originality.

Good stuff, guys. I'll be contacting you about your prizes shortly.
