Contest Winner Announced
The time has come for the 2007 contest to draw to a close. The cut off date was 31 October 2007. The draw took place on 28 November and the winner was notified.
Congratulations to the 2007 winner: Liza van der Walt, a Graphic and Web Designer from Centurion, South Africa! She has won a wilderness walking safari of her choice in the Kruger National Park, South Africa.
We asked her a few short questions and it turns out she enjoys relaxing and also doing "something sporty", so I think a walking safari is just the perfect fit.
If you didn't yet get a chance to enter the African Safari Pictures contest yet, don't worry because the new one for 2008 has already started...
