June - Photo Comp.

June 2003 - Midwinter

Midwinter Photo Competition

Photo competitions at Rothera have been traditional, as shown by the number of winning photos that are proudly hung around the dining room. This year, as I'm sure is the same every year, we have a number of budding photographers and consequently it seemed appropriate to continue the tradition. The categories were 'people', 'landscape' and 'wildlife'. An additional category for an overall winner, from all categories, was to be the one hung in the dining room. The competition attracted some 25 photos that were displayed and voted for by the Rothera winterers over a week.

The results and the winning photos are shown below. Click the images to enlarge them.
