Thanks to everyone who submitted photos and those who took the time to vote for  WTC 2017 Photo Competition. 

We were lucky to have such choice in our voting. What the results don't show is how close the actual votes were. A single vote in a few categories was all that separated first from second, and the same could be said for those separating second, third, and fourth place photos. What else was heartwarming was the support shown between the photographers. It is my hope that each one of you will take a photo (or a few) on one of our tramps in the coming months, that you will enter in next year's competition!

Congratulations to:
ABN 1st Paul Frude - Seals at Titiroa; 2nd Pip Craigie Shadows of Motatapu
ABW 1st Karen MacPherson - Bowen Peak in Snow; 2nd - Lindsay Jackson - Water for the Billy Lake Wilson
BBN 1st - Sally Stockdale - Phantoms South Coast; 2nd (Tie) Karen MacPherson Tunnel of Light and Paul Frude Day's End
BBW 1st - Lindsay Jackson - Cobweb on Kepler; 2nd Di Fitzgerald - Silhouette of Trees Dart Slip
Historic 1st - Di Fitzgerald - Shed on Strop; 2nd Lindsay Jackson - Relic of Old Ghost Road
Flora and Fauna 1st - Lindsay Jackson Camouflage Kea; 2nd Sally Stockdale - Celmisia

The photos have been submitted to the FMC for their national competition. As we were limited to two per category, there was a vote taken between the tie between Tunnel of Light and Day's End. Day's End will be submitted as Second Place.

Get your phones and cameras out to start building your portfolio for next year's competition.

All in good fun.
