Ice Photo Contest Winner!

Wow! The winner of this month’s photo contest is Brenda, with the photo:

Ice Patterns on the Ramapo River


Look at those patterns!  Congratulations, Brenda!

As always, we had a number of great submissions, and we regret that we had to pick just one winner.  Check back in a few weeks to see the runners-up!

The theme for next month’s contest is:  Winter Birds

Last Month’s Photo Contest: Runners Up

Hello Yucky Readers,

One of you sent in an email requesting that after posting the Winning Photo for the Photo Contest, we show those photos that didn’t win. So each month we will post last month’s photo contest runners-up in the days preceding the announcement of the new winner for the new month’s contest.

Here are last month’s runner’s up from the Reindeer Contest:

Don’t forget: the deadline for this month’s Ice contest is tomorrow, January 15th!  Good luck yuckers!

Introducing Pet Rocks

Hi Yuck Yuck Yuck readers!  At your request, starting in 2015 we will begin posting pictures of your pet rocks every week!

For those of you who have never had a pet rock, this is a great opportunity to get started.  For those of you who already make a weekly rock, this is a great chance to show them off!  This is a very exciting time for us at Yuck Yuck Yuck!

Details at our new Rocks Page.


Thank you everyone who completed the survey.  It has been very helpful.

Today is the 11th, which means Christmas is only two weeks away and the deadline for the first photo contest is only four days away!  We encourage everyone to submit a photo, even if it is a stupid photo— in fact, a stupid photo is even better!  Remember, the theme this month is reindeer.

Also, we are happy to report that we will be introducing several exciting new contests in addition to the photo contest early next year.

That’s all the news for now; Stay Tuned!
