Sponsored by Waggener Edstrom Worldwide – one of the largest PR firms in the world and arguably the heppest – the contest runs for 6 months January through June. Each month a photo caption will be judged for creativity and originality. Of course, this being Strumpette, sass, sex appeal, and succinctness are key.
The response to January’s photo was overwhelming. After two days debate our seven judges chose Ike's caption: "A surprise hit in Rio, Jaye Davidson is all smiles, despite losing the title of 'Queen of the Carnivale" to Gene Hackman. Again."
Apparently, Pigott’s experience gave him an edge. He’s a veteran newsman. Ike has more than 16 years experience in television news both in front of the camera and behind it. He's been named Alabama's Associated Press Best Reporter three times, and is an Emmy Award-winning writer.
When first notified that he had won, Ike responded: "WOW! I'm now a PR pro who got paid $500/minute."
When asked what he's going to do with the check, Ike said: "I think it's an even split with the wife. I get a Bluetooth headset; she gets a dishwasher."
How cool is that?!
Special thanks to all who participated. Good luck next month.
