The photo contest 2009 last for exactly 1 year, from November 1st 2008, when the first contest finished, till October 31st, 2009, and it received even bigger participation than the previous. Our members uploaded about 18,000 pictures, most of which were of high quality. Our judges did a hard work to evaluate every single photo and to choose the top 50.

The first three winners were awarded free holidays in the amazing Greek islands of Santorini, Mykonos and Paros.
