Walt Handelsman: New Cartoon Caption Contest!

New Year, New Baby!

Mardi Gras will be here in just a few weeks, so let’s kick off the first caption contest of 2018 with a carnival theme. It’s king cake time again! In Louisiana,there’s no end to the food and fun!

So what’s going on in this cartoon? You tell me. Be witty, funny, crazy, absurd or snarky — just try to keep it clean.

The winning entry will be hand-lettered into the word balloon and run on Monday, Jan. 15, in The Advocate print editions and online. In addition, the winner will receive a signed color print of the cartoon along with some other cool Advocate stuff!

Some honorable mentions will also be listed.

Simply email your entry to cartooncontest@theadvocate.com.        

All entries must include your name, home address and phone number where you can be easily reached.

THE DEADLINE FOR ALL ENTRIES IS THURSDAY, Jan. 11 AT MIDNIGHT.

Good luck, everyone!
