surfPPC users:
OK!

[2003.09.16: The Period for submissions is Closed and Finished. There were no entries. There shall be no winner this time. One Judge was nominated and is now released. Therefore I will take myself and a guest to a fine dinner instead and contemplate next year's Contest. I'll leave this page up as a reminder. Please keep using surfPPC whenever you get a wild tick. Then send your best image and perhaps I'll post it here.]
