Drupalcon Photo Contest, Take Two: Drupal IRL

Yesterday we posted an article on Drupal Planet about our plans for Drupalcon Denver.

To try to make the contest go viral, we gave it an ironic name ("Drupal Celebrity Photo Challenge"), included a pic of our star-struck intern Tavish meeting Dries at Drupalcon London, and asked that all entries are submitted via twitter.
