"Gitmo needs an avatar! 500+ doubs" was an event held by Guantanamo on the Yohoho! Puzzle Pirates Forums during August, 2009. Participants in this contest were asked to create avatars for his Puzzle Pirates character, Guantanamo.

Original Instructions

"Well, I felt the need for an avatar change, sooo..

A little information about myself; I love to swordfight, sail, rumble carpent and poker. Sometimes all at once. I like computer generated, but cartoony avatars, like my current. I love gold, gold, gold! My look at the moment.

All details are up to you, I will answer additional questions if I think it's necessary."

The closing date for this contest was the 30th of August, 2009.

An additional rule was added later. This was that all work should be the entrants' own. "Any entries submitted that contain work that is not of your own hand will not be eligible for any prizes."


  • 1st prize: 300 doubloons.
  • 2nd prize: 150 doubloons.
  • 3rd prize: 75 doubloons.
  • All additional entries will receive 10 doubloons.

  • 1st prize went to Harlech


  • 2nd prize went to Amethethon


  • 3rd prize went to aahsjpw (Greenslope)


Six additional entries were awarded 25 doubloons each, as Guantanamo felt that they deserved more than the 10 doubloon prize. These are shown below.

All other entries which met the criteria and rules of the competition were awarded 10 doubloons.
