The Chuck Jones Galleries are pleased to announce the three winners of the Show Your Memories Contest that was held online from September 21, 2009 through December 2, 2009. Before we get to the winners, we'd like to thank everyone who submitted a memory (there were over 1300 submissions!) and also to thank the thousands of you who visited the site and participated in the voting and viewing.
The memories that were shared, along with the artwork, were a touching and heartfelt tribute to Chuck Jones and his legacy of brilliance, joy, comedy, color and laughter. We appreciate and applaud you all!
