[Lofoten Rock, 3 kb]ROCKFAX Guidebook of the Year award for RockFax 12-Nov-09
In their annual 'Awards for Excellence' the Outdoor Writers and Photographers Guild have voted Lofoten Rock as winner in the Guidebook of the Year category.

Judges Roger Smith and Guy Proctor described the book thus:

"Infectiously enthusiastic and a smorgasbord of inspiration and information combined in the wonderful images and topos. Shaggy and inclusive rather than clinical and definitive, with a frankness that's totally winning, and in its invitation for readers' contributions totally modern and in the 'wiki spirit' too. Exciting and brilliant."
