Art Meets Text Winners on 3 Different Platforms!

Wow! Were we ever impressed with the number and quality of submissions for our Art Meets Text Mashup challenge.

The challenge was to create a public website that allows people to write clever text that displays on top of a few pre-chosen images - much like filling in your own captions to a comic strip. Cartoon images were then to be sent to a Picasa album allowing people to tweet and post them to other social media.

We left the challenge wide open on the technology to be used which created some really cool results. Our top three submissions used PHP, Heroku and

Third place was vinayendra with his PHP submission. You can watch the submission here.

Second place went to kzer95 with his ruby entry. We really liked the flow of kzer95's application and thought it was a great use of ruby.

Kenji776's app came in first with a really slick admin UI making it super-simple to manage text areas, fonts, colors, etc. for the text bubbles.

  1. Just wanted to say I'm really impressed with the other entries in this contest. I am actually not even quite sure why I won because the submission by kzer95 was rock solid. Nice work guys, I'm gonna have to step it up a notch if I want to keep winning these while competition like you guys is out there!
