On the 3rd August 2007 MINDistortion turned 5, so it was to time to celebrate its birthday with a little art contest. Winners were determined by members of the MINDistortion community.
All in all 26 entries were submitted, with 5 winners taking home a MINDistortion t-shirt, original artwork and stickers (and an additional $150 for the first place).

After postponing the Contest Voting due to the many problems with the MINDistortion Website I was happy to finally announce the Winners of the MINDistortion Anniversary Contest, as voted by the MINDistortion community! Unfortunately the birthday child itself was offline that day. Yet here we are!
1st: God's away on business
"Celebrating 5 years of subliminal brainwashing!"
- Ah... Yes... the good old brainwashing theme. Where would MINDistortion be without it? Great use of MINDistortion footage and a lovely main character by the contestant himself. Also, it was about time that someone made a Flash featuring a Tom Waits song! Congratulations Drew... you got the most votes! :)
2nd: Good Times
"Try to find all your favorite characters and stuff! The ultimate test for the MINDistortion fanboy within. Pencils+Photoshop"
- Stav's entry followed up pretty close. This drawing definately gets the award for "Most MINDistortion references in a single picture" And it's a great piece of art as well. Nihil fighting with the soldier from System Interrupted while the guys from KKM have a shootout on a train and the MindScape kid runs havoc on the pink bunnies. Beautiful.
3rd: System Interrupted
"That's what I remember the most from you. This was THE SHIT back in the day, I think it might have been the number 1 movie in the portal at some point ( though briefly). Can't recall. Anyways, here it be 2:)"
- Poxpower's System Interrupted tribute oozes talent as well. Imagine how the original movie would have looked with graphics like that... damn, I wish I could draw like that. Alright, moving on...
"On your mind."
- Arik Beremzon (Akula) submitted not one, but actually three entries! All very well done - This one, however, was liked the most by the MINDistortion community. Hooray for Photoshop skills! :)
5th: 5 Years MD
"HeRetiK and a bunch of his creations."
- This nice photo manipulation was submitted by Steffen Burzlaff (Stuga) and voted 5th place. It's a pretty accurate picture of my everyday life. Well, except for Simon, the huge fella behind the leaves. He's much smaller in real life.
