Oh my. They are all beautiful. The judges must have had a very hard time making a decision. Congrats to all.

Hi!

Does anyone have any info on what were the prizes? Not the travel packages but the category prizes. Did not find any info on that yet. And if anyone knows a site where I can have a look at some photos from the award ceremony and the exhibiton itself, I'd be happy to browse through them (BTS website does not have any fresh info yet). I could not attend, as I'm at another part of the world :D (general category, first prize)

Thanks,
Zook

Anyone else?

Yes, I had to write like 8-10 emails asking about what my prize is. Never got to know what I won, the only answer I got was: please be patient, your prize is on it's way...

strange way to handle a comp. but seems I'm lucky I got something in the end. Hope it's just a glitch and all others will get their stuff sooner than later...

I'm sure they'll sort things out for the rest of us soon. I can only imagine the potential complications involved with gathering prize donations off of 3 dozen different sponsors at once. :D

In hindsight, we really should be grateful that the BTS volunteers donate so much of their time to these contests. Afterall, without them there wouldn't be a contest to begin with!

Great shots by the way, Csaba!
