The winning team, Vatican Cameos, is exactly the sort of team we were hoping to lose to. Well done you guys - you’re an inspiration!
We were also stoked to see one of our favourites, Team Llama-nomenal, get a runner up nod. We want to be like you when we grow up. We also may or may not have been stalking your YouTube channel.
Item 152: Get Alexander Misurkin, Pavel Vinogradov, Chris Cassidy, Fyodor Yurchikhin, Karen Nyberg or Luca Parmitano to take a photo of themselves holding up a sign that says, “Hey (INSERT ANY USERNAME FROM YOUR TEAM)! GISHWHES does space too!” or a similar slogan. As a side note, the preceding individuals are all currently on the International Space Station orbiting planet Earth.
Item 150: Let’s see a watercolor painting of one of your teammates leading the cavalry of a battle charge. The warriors, however, are not riding traditional horses, they are riding rocking horses. Give us a fitting landscape and weaponry as well.
Item 142: (Two photos in one image.) “Hell and back.” In other words, we want to see a before and after photo of a GISHWHES 2013 participant. The first photo should depict the participant eagerly getting ready for the great, adventurous week ahead, and the second photo, what the participant looks like at the close of the hunt.
Item 134: As you know, pink ninja sightings are common at Ayers Rock in Australia. Take a photo of tourists spotting one at the rock.
NOTE FROM THE SPACE FUHRERS: We acknowledge the Aboriginal People as the traditional custodians of Australia. Uluru (Ayers Rock) holds great spiritual significance for the Anangu People of central Australia. The Galactic Space Fuhrers respect Anangu law and culture, and have chosen not to photograph this item on sacred land. We did, however, find a very large replica in New South Wales.
