2006 Photo Contest for 2007 Calendar
2006 Photo Contest Winners - for 2007 Calendar
The contest is an annual event, where you can showcase your best photos, and they can help inspire others to get on the road too. The new design for the website is coming along nicely, and we have a lot of new stuff in the works - one of them will be using the photos - they will appear randomly in the web pages, so everyone will get to enjoy almost ALL the photos submitted, not just the winners!
Congratulations to the winners of the 2006 contest - (in month order) Nezasa Takayuki (cover), Michel de Schoutheete, Ingo Cordes, David Robinson, Timothy Bussey, Martijn Pater, Todd Lawson, Rupert Wilson-Young, Sheonagh Ravensdale, Yau Chi Lim, Pierre Saslawsky, Emma Myatt and Andy Gower. It was a really hard job to narrow it down to only 13, as we had hundreds of great photos to choose from, but I think you'll agree when you see these pics (small photos don't really do them justice, but the full-size ones are gorgeous!) that the winners really deserve the accolades.
The Grand Prize winner of a portable solar charger (generously donated by Antonio Caldeira, our HU Portugal Meeting organiser) is Michel de Schoutheete for the picture of Gerald Regnier crossing a bridge in Park National Torres del Paine, Chile.
The 2006 contest is now CLOSED, but the next contest is now open, so start shooting!
Tip: Make sure your camera is set to at least 2300x1800 pixels!
The best 13 photos will be used in the calendar, and those photographers will receive a share of the proceeds. Winners will also get a free calendar, and 1 year Gold Member status on the HUBB.

Does the smell of spices wafting through the air make you think of Zanzibar, a cacophony of honking horns is Cairo, or a swirl of brilliantly patterned clothing Guatemala? Then this is the site for you!
