A few weeks ago, we launched what ended up being my favorite creative Android Police contest to date - the wallpaper design contest. With over 250 submissions, it took me a little while to sort through everything and pick out the two winners, the top 25 runners-up, and even one hilarious entry that we absolutely had to include.

As promised, the first place entry will receive a 16GB Sony Tablet S, and the second one will get the Philips Fidelio AS851 that we reviewed earlier.

For a history of creative contests, see these posts:

Note to runners-up: Because we had so many excellent submissions but only two prizes, we decided that all runners-up should receive at least something for their efforts. Therefore, designers of all runner-up entries who didn't win the grand prizes will receive Android Police t-shirts of their choosing from our apparel store - just send an email to giveaways@ap from the same email address you used to enter. Include the exact link to the shirt you want, color and size, along with your address and phone number (note: we can only send shirts to Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea (Republic), Luxemburg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, and United States).

And now, the 2 amazing winners and 25 runners-up - bravo, guys, you've really outdone yourselves!
