satirical/informative Australian news website newmatilda.com has pulled the pin due to lack of advertising revenue after 6 years. More importantly they have pulled the pin on the newmatilda.com prize for political cartooning after two years.
I'm devastated, not only had I organised my entry for this years competition, but I was on a good run, 5th in 2008 and 3rd in 2009, and anyone with even the slightest understanding of numerical patterns knows that that means that this year I was a shoe in for 1st (and a cool $6000, although being in financial difficulty probably isn't the best time to give out 6k, and winning it and never getting paid would've been a real kick in the dick, but I digress...).
Anywho, this years entry in the now defunct competition is below and hopefully some of you guys get a laugh out of it.
What a jip.
