    "The creativity of our contestants continues to amaze me," said Thom VanHorn, vice president, global marketing, AppSec. "We are now in the contests third year and the submissions get better and better. The winning submission as well as the other entries not only illustrated the concept that database security is important, but did so in a manner that exhibited humor and creative expression.

    The contest's other two finalists were 'Ninjas, Database Security and YOU' by Jonathan Mann and 'Database Security is Important' by Tim Armstrong. Both receive a $500 consolation prize.
