Last week, The Friday Flyer announced 1st, 2nd and 3rd place awards for the Turkey Hands Coloring Contest and printed those turkeys. What wasn’t announced at that time was the Editor’s Choice Award.
Editor Sharon Rice says Matthew Thomas’ gobbler caught her eye for its unique Candy Corn color scheme and the story-telling quality of the illustration. Why is the turkey in a hole and who are those creatures that are looking on?
In next year’s contest, artists will be invited to provide stories with their drawings.
In the meantime, Matthew can pick up his prize, a bag of Candy Corn, from The Friday Flyer office any day between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Here are some of the other turkey hands submitted in the contest. They didn’t win prizes but all of them are unique!
