And the selfie stick winner is…

Here is a family reacting to dad using a selfie stick while out for a meal


Whaleoil received a few entries which were somewhat disturbing, and not fit for publication.  Thanks for the laughs, but sorry – they can’t be published.  They’ll just have to go into the Dirt Drawer with John Key’s dirt for a rainy day.

We did get a submission that is the most ballsy selfie.  Cactus Kate risking severe indigestion by making small talk with David “Tainted” Fisher.


Although she’s definitely in need of a selfie stick, her entry was previously published so it wasn’t specifically made for this contest.

Which leads to the winner – a suitably abstract entry.


Submitted by Mike from Clive in the Hawkes Bay, it is suitably disturbing.  It appears to have been taken in a bedroom, which makes it all the more unsettling.  I hate to speculate what the bit at the top is about.  If you do, please remember the commenting and moderation standards…

Mike, congrats – we’ll put the Selfie Stick into the mail today.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
