I'm not going to lie, this wasn't an easy decision… but one turkey stood out from the rest. 

The winner of the 1st Annual LochNessMPLS Thanksgiving Coloring Contest is

BECKETT from Chicago!

There were tons of beautiful entries, but I couldn't stop thinking about this guy! I love the originality, the restrained color pallet, and the collaboration it took to pull this turkey off.

Beckett will be getting one of these Dapper Foxes in the mail!

Thank you all for your beautiful works of art! It was so fun to see them showing up on my newsfeed, and I hope you enjoyed it.

Here's a peek at all of this year's entries:

And I couldn't keep away from the fun… Here's my turkey!

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Get practicing for next year's contest!
