  • Chris Casselden

  • seroquel

    Thanks for tris interesting information! I found it very useful =)

  • Martin Hellewell

    What’s the point in having a competition on your site when it’s six months out of date?

  • Noel Taylor

    Has a winner been announced yet guys?

  • Charlie Duran

    Such a shame that the winner doesn’t seem to have been announced soon after the competition has closed. Kind of takes the polish and shine off the expectations from such big names! Shame really.

  • pupilly

    was this a non-competition?

    Who are the winners?

  • Charlie Durán

    Who’s the lucky winner? The suspense is growing 🙂

    Does anyone know when and how the winner will be announced?

  • andrew

  • rich

  • Edvaldo Dortas

    Very strange offering a prize for a photo competition and then you say that “Prizes are subject to availability”, and then prize is not available and you will use the photos for no more than 5 years. Thanks…very kind offer! I am out!
    And do not use my email to send marketing!

  • Edvaldo Dortas

    “”Prizes are subject to availability??””

    So you mean that by the time that announces the winner if there is no camera available the winner will not take…right? Explaing that please.

  • Edvaldo Dortas

  • john timblin

    as an owner of the d90 would the d300 give me any better pictures or specifications

  • John

    I’m assuming there’s some kind of limit as to the number of images each entrant is allowed to upload? I see some people uploading quite a few.

  • lee

    do u means only UK citizen can uploading a photo for the competition ? TQ

  • tony

    Can I enter if I have a UK address but currently live abroad?

  • Hannah

    this may sound dumb, but how do i enter? 🙂

  • Matthew

    oh no I have realised I sent in my photos and they are way over 1000 pixels across…. does this really matter? How do I make them smaller and re-submit? Sorry

  • Estelle

    Really sorry chaps, but only UK and ROI entries can win (as stated in the rather extensive rules). Apologies if you feel there are too many loops to jump through. Try just uploading a photo, and see how you go! Regards the first and last name – that would be ideal, but people will still be entered. Thanks for all your questions – keep those fabulous pictures coming!

  • PETED60
