Here's a very rough Photoshop job of what the announcement would have looked like:

Tonight at Midnight is the deadline to enter your best concept into the first round of the HJC Open. Only 8 artists move onto the second round, so in my opinion, your best concept may be the one you want to use first! We also have a couple of votes going on. The second quarter COTY vote will determine the second concept to be in the final COTY competition. The COTW concept from this week could very well be the Q3 COTY winner, so make sure you can help decide that contest as well.
2nd Quarter Vote (ends Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)
COTW July 7-13 vote (ends Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)
HJC Open Round 1 entries (due Wednesday @ 11:59pm Eastern)
HJC Open Entries
Here are the concepts that aren't in 'The Open.'
Mario A. - Carolina Hurricanes Concept
Score: 7.5/10 - I would continue the warning flag pattern all the way around the sleeve, and definitely do some more design based around the waves.
TG - Team Romania Concept
Score: 8/10 - Time for my classic "Nike should hire you" joke. But seriously, these jerseys are awesome!
Riley C. - Carolina Hurricanes Concept
Score: 7/10 - I don't think that there is any good way to recolor a Hurricanes logo, but I can live with this.
S2dio - Montreal Canadiens "What If" Concept
Score: 7.5/10 - This template is cool, but for me it's a little hard to look at the finer details of the uniform. It does to a great job representing what the concept would look like on the ice.
Jeff C. - Toronto Tecumsehs Concept
Score: 8/10 - Overall, an awesome concept!
Scott B. - Washington Capitals Concept
Score: 7/10 - The crest looks a little bit small to me, but I think this concept has a lot of promise.
Phil B. - Carolina Hurricanes Concept
Score: 7.5/10 - I love hockey socks, as I can wear different socks with any jersey in practice. I WANT THESE SOCKS!
Tristan M. - Florida Panthers Concept
Score: 9/10 - It's great to see the broken stick logo return! I can't believe the Panthers let Reebok take that away from us! COTW Nomination.
What would we do without HJC? We'd have to watch baseball or something... Anyway I'll see you all next week!
