We had promised you that we would announce the winner of the Man and his Goat Picture Prompt Competition tomorrow Tuesday 15th December 2009. However because of the absolutely bad quality of the submissions we are – without shame because we represent the very best and are convinced that there are really talented writers out there – announcing an extension of the Man and his Goat Picture Prompt Writing Contest. The new deadline is January 15th, 2010.
