The only thing better than Norway's new banknotes

The central bank of Norway asked the public to send in designs for the motifs of its new banknotes with a theme based on "The Sea".

The new notes will be dispensed to the public in 2017, but as Quartz note, the only thing better than the new designs were all those that sadly missed the cut:
