All three of our winners this week captured awards for the first time, an inspiration to all caption contestants who believe they can come up with something spicy and special for CapCon 188.

Send up to three entries to or mail to: Caption Contest/Portfolio, Post-Gazette, 34 Blvd. of the Allies, Pittsburgh PA 15222. Please include name and address and identify your municipality or city neighborhood. Deadline: July 16. Winners receive a PG umbrella. You'll need one again someday. We promise.
