After an unprecedented response (people are so shallow out there – you offer something free and they swarm like vultures) the time has come to make the draw in the Diversity Bleeding Edge Competition.

First though I’d like to run you through the exceptionally high tech process used to decide the winner.

Step One – The Holy Grail

hatIt might look like just a hat to you but don’t be fooled. Given to the Editor by his brother nigh on two decades ago, this is a genuine, made in Porirua hat from none other than Hills Hats. Obtained (possibly with a dodgy twist – I wouldn’t know) when my brother was doing some work for the former proprietor Harry de Krey.

Step Two – It’s All in the Tool of Choice

scissors And this, dear reader, may look like a simple pair of scissors but in fact it is a genuine pair of Tupperware scissors bought, unbeknownst to me, by my wife at one of those God-awful Tupperware party that I thought only happened in deepest, darkest suburbia. They’re actually quite cool, with a flick of the wrist they split into two pieces – great for cleaning!

Step Three – Papier!

Step Four – My Lovely Assistant (Actually More Cute Than Lovely)

omri Age 6 1/2 and he already has high-stress roles to fulfil – this time he was chief assistant deputy vice president for selection facilitation.

Enough of that – Who Won?

OK – I’m pleased to announce that the winner of the inaugural Diversity On the Edge competition was JAG from Adelaide, South Australia. Thanks everyone for entering and stay tuned for more free stuff from time to time.
