Last week, I posted a contest to win a free General Admission ticket to DerbyCon 4.0. The base of the contest was to find a picture of me, not my avatar, and Photoshop or meme it with the theme of “Security FAIL!”. I also mentioned that I am always picked on for my youthful appearance and size, [and to] use that to your advantage. I also mentioned that if you incorporated Social Engineering and Science Fiction it would greatly increase your chances of winning. Before I announce the winning picture, there were a lot of submissions to the contest that did not include a picture of me or my face. Unfortunately those were not eligible for the prize.

With that, the winner that submitted a picture that not only incorporated my age, social engineering, and science fiction but also was a very good edit is Babs O’Matic!!babsomaticBe sure to follow Babs on Twitter!

Babs O’Matic’s winning submission:


Congratulations! You are now the happy owner of a DerbyCon 4.0 General Admission ticket. Please check your twitter DM! I will say that Bab’s Stargate photoshop was a very close second because I am a Stargate SG-1 Geek! However, the picture above incorporated everything from the contest and looks perfect.Thank you to everyone that submitted. Here is a list of the images that were qualified to be entered. You all did a great job and I laughed a lot! Thank you for playing!
