Earlier this month Chris Rowlands, Simon Marsh and the staff of DMM whittled down the 121 My First Outdoor Lead essays to their ten favourites. You can see the top ten here.
DMM are now pleased to announce the winners.
In first place is:
Confessions of a Coward by Nicola Wilding (link)
Nicola wins a £500 rack of DMM gear.
The runners up are:
Petticoats and Promises by Jo Horne (link)
and M1, Avon Gorge - 1986 by Rob Carlin (link)
Rob and Jo both get £100 of DMM gear.
We will have news of the prize giving and the reading of a selection of the entries out at the Llanberis Mountain Film Festival later. Then there is the task of getting all the spot prizes out to everyone.
And, there is one more My First Outdoor Lead essay, Paisley Pattern Pyjama Trousers by DMM's Chris Rowlands. You can read it here here
