VIB Photo Competition Results

Congratulations and thanks to all who made the effort to enter such wonderful photos for the VIB photo competition - and especially to those awarded prizes as listed below.

Thanks also to our four judges who took the time to review all the photos on the afternoon of 2nd September 2005 - Dasho Meghraj Gurung, Ms. Yannick Jooris, Mr. Miraj Pradhan, and Mr. Joseph Lo.

Prizes will be awarded at a special ceremony on the occasion of International Volunteer Day, on or near 5th December (date and venue to be announced - check on this website!). All entrants will also receive free copies of the 2006 VIB Calendar.

Note that those names marked with an asterisk (*) in fact had more than one winning photo, but the competition rules do not allow for a single entrant to receive more than one prize, although they do allow for more than one of their photos to be published in the calendar. Therefore, regrettably, some of the lower ranking prize winners may find that their photos will not appear in the published calendar.
