I won a caption a few months ago and should have received a $25 Amazon gift card - never did.

Great Direction!
I think this is a nice addition to Dark Reading's reader-interaction model.  I look forward to seeing more of these contests and opportunities for the readers to show their personalities and knowledge.

Calls for article submissions would be nice, too, with a modest prize for the winners (outside publication, which is already a pretty nice reward), and perhaps more contributor exposure through media, such as spotlights on writers who are less-known.

Anyway, this is a great opportunity for the humor and sarcasm of the hacker community to shine.  A little levity to soften the all-too-miserable reality of InfoSec.
