A few weeks ago we challenged GamesRadar fans to design the very first print ad for our weekly podcast, TalkRadar. The winner of said contest would have his or her design featured in issues of The Official Xbox Magazine and PlayStation: The Official Magazine, gaining worlwide fame and priceless noteriety overnight. Much to our never-ending delight, you guys came through big time, forcing us to choose among some extremely strong pieces. But now we can reveal who won, plus the runners up that we'll try to get in the magazines down the road.
Much thanks to EVERYONE who gave up even a minute of their time to work on a submission.
Above: The winner! Reader graboids played on our childhoods by referencing classic NES box art. Despite the nostalgia, it also manages to convey that TalkRadar is a podcast, what it contains and where you can find it. Look for this in the November issues of OXM and PTOM!

Above: Twishart overdosed on KMFDM and propaganda posters for our benefit - what a kickass design!
Above: Sausage Lozenge went the extra mile and apparently drew this one with enchanted crayons. Nicely done!
