Welcome to You Write the Caption, 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 political 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.
Enter as many times as you wish. 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 16.
We'll post the winner's name and caption and the runners-up here Friday afternoon and publish them in the Observer next Monday. You'll also be able to find here each Friday additional entries that we just didn't have room to print in the paper, plus have the opportunity to participate in an forum discussion about the captions --your chance to agree or disagree with the judges, or even suggest additional captions. The winning writer will be mailed the original cartoon art with the caption added.
Good luck, and have fun!
