Welcome to the Charlotte Observer Cartoon Caption Contest, an opportunity to test your wit and win a prize. Each Monday, Observer editorial cartoonist Kevin Siers will post a cartoon that needs a caption and invite readers to write one. To learn more about our contest and see our caption writing guidelines, please click here.
To submit your caption on-line, just click here to e-mail us! Please include your mailing address and daytime phone number. To mail your caption to the Observer, address it to You Write the Caption, Editorial Department, The Charlotte Observer, P.O. Box 30308, Charlotte, NC 28230-0308. Submissions must reach us by noon Thursday, August 24.
You Write the Caption will be taking a short break this week. The winner of this week's contest will be announced here in about 2 weeks, on Sept. 1, and published in the paper Sept. 4.
The winning writer will be mailed the original cartoon art with the caption added. We've got a bit of a backlog, so please allow at least 4 weeks for delivery.
Good luck, and have fun!
