?More importantly, I’ve gotten very few entries (this one is one of last year’s). I’m hoping you folks were just busy doing holiday stuff and you’re going to turn your entries in this weekend, because otherwise it’s going to be a very quick contest for me to judge, and you know how I hate that. In case you still need the rules, the main one is that picture’s subject must be Topless Robot-related (and not just mention TR on it somewhere). The suggested themes include:

? The Greatest Moments of FFF (as SFW as possible, please)
? A new Topless Robot robot
? The Offline Adventures of Rob Bricken (also as SFW as possible, please)
? Visual interpretations of “WHOSE RESPONSIBLE THIS”
? Photos of acts of nerdery (someone must be holding a TR sign in it, though)

You must email me the picture at the TR email ([email protected])
or provide a link in the comments to the original contest post. I know hyperlinks don’t really work,
so something I can cut and paste is fine. Also remember: IF YOU EMAIL
ME THE PICTURE, YOU MUST HAVE “TR ART CONTEST” AS THE EMAIL’S HEADLINE. Otherwise I might not see it.

The contest will on 12:01 am EST on Monday, January 2nd, 2012… unless enough people ask me to extend it another week (seriously, I really want more entries). Surely at least a couple of you are willing to draw Ginny stepping on Harry Potter’s head, right?

About Author

Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
