Readers' Desks: results of competition to find the most creative workspace

Readers' Desks: results of competition to find the most creative workspace Readers' Desks: results of competition to find the most creative

Throughout today we've been asking our Twitter followers to tweet us pictures of their desks to stand a chance of winning a pair of tickets to next week's Manchester Design Symposium.

You can see the variety of entries we have received so far in our gallery on the left. The deadline is 6pm so tweet yours to @thedrum before then, we'll add it to the gallery and you might just snag those tickets.

The best desk, as judged by our editor Gordon Young, will win the tickets. Help him make up his mind and let us know who you think should win in our comments section below.

We'll be announcing the winner tomorrow.

Update: After careful deliberation our editor has chosen Barry Kinder's photo (main picture) as the winner. We're not sure if Barry was begging or just being polite, but he did say please after all... good manners deserve reward.

Thanks to all of you who sent in your desk pictures. Keep them tidy!

My vote would be with BarryKinder too. It's good to beg.

LarnerC for me. Always suspected he had a desk like that. Explains a lot.

Did Kinder manage to find a satin silver pole photo with no rings the same as the 35mm?

Also did he manage to finish off that last bite of biscuit?

There are a few nice enteries. Personally I keep my desk as clutter free as I can, it helps me think freely. It could also be an OCD creeping in... Hmmm, I blame my mother and her over active thyroid during my childhood. It doesn't help that she is an interior designer and my family home resembles a show home. To sit down was to make the house look untidy!

Anyway...

Clearly fayscho's entry. I feel the urge to suddenly adorn my workspace with small plastic ducks...

Drats! I missed this yesterday. I've tweeted mine today anyway (I didn't want the tickets anyway... it's the taking part that counts) :o)

Surprisingly more clear desk/blank spaces than I would have expected. Can't imagine life without my blu-tack miniature sculpture gallery on my keyboard, my twinkly lights and my assortment of toys!

The ducks should get an A for effort (although I suspect they're not a permanent feature of this workspace!) :o)
