Everyone's a critic. But is everyone a cartoonist?

I draw five editorial cartoons a week for the Omaha World-Herald. It’s a challenging job to craft cartoons and write the best captions week after week. Now is your chance to pick up a pen and practice your own creativity!

Each month, I'll post a new drawing that's in need of a caption. Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to come up with the wittiest, cleverest caption you can. The rules are few: Keep it short – remember, brevity is the soul of wit. And, of course, keep it clean. Otherwise, let your imagination run wild!

I'll pick one first-place winner and up to two runners-up. Winners will be announced and published the following month. First-place entrants will receive the original drawing – with their caption included – and a copy of my cartoon collection, “Drawing You In.”

You can enter up to three captions – but you can only enter once a month.

Each entry must include the following:

Name

Email Address

Phone Number

Mailing Address

Caption #1:

Caption #2:

Caption #3:

(Limit of three caption submissions)
