It took much longer than expected, practically a month longer, but the first ever traditional art contest sponsored by the mothership, bungie.org is finally over. You can check out the online gallery and gawk at all the fine talent on display.
If you're in New York City July 5th, a Saturday, we're going to be showing the art at a bona-fide gallery! There will be a Halo LAN party afterwards. Checking out the Halo art is free and open to all, but seating for the LAN party will be limited so email me if you'd like to participate.
It's been said a million times, but I gotta say it again... thanks to all those who entered. You guys rock!
Caption Contest Winners Announced

Now this is cool. Bungie have offered three people the chance to put something into Halo 2. A new b.net contest involves coming up with a nifty quote to appear in the UI for the new game. Time and number of entries is limited so check out the details now.

Get Into Bungie's Pants
The Pillar of Art is an art contest in the traditional sense. There's some cold hard cash to be won as well as some very cool Bungie swag. So break out that sculptor's knife/paintbrush/modeler's knife/potter's wheel and get cracking!
Hanker over to bungie.net and check out the winners of the bungie.net theme contest. The 3 entries are really very very cool!
I've already changed two of my chapters, NYC Bungie-holics and BS, to the "Legendary" by Qbix (1st place) and "Durandal" by Djof (3rd) themes, respectively. The "We Were Soldiers" theme by Patriotic Marine, 2nd place, is also a hoot. If I had a 3rd chapter, I'd change it to that one.
