DMM are now pleased to announce the winners.

Nicola wins a £500 rack of DMM gear.
The runners up are:

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.
