Edition 206: 13th May 2010
Hi ExplorOz Reader,
After much deliberation, judging is complete and we proudly announce the winners of the ExplorOz 2010Members Photo Competition. This year, whilst we had a staggering 501 entries, it was a difficult choice to find the winning shot as we struggled to find the photo that was not only depictive of "ExplorOz"
but was also of a high quality in composition, technique, light, and colour yet
remaining universal so that anyone could hang the photo in their home and feel a
sense of pride and ownership. Please join with us in congratulating the winners
on the2010 Photo Competition
Thanks to all who took the effort to create a blog and submit a photo to this competition. Even if you didn't win a prize, we hope you enjoyed the experience of sharing your photos, as we certainly enjoyed viewing the incredible variety of photos submitted and hope to see more photos and travel blogs from you in the future.
And if you’re looking to enhance your ability to best capture the people,
landscapes and wildlife encountered in your travels, have a look at Steve Parish’s book How to Photograph Australia
a great resource no matter what your experience level.
Don't forget, the next stage is just beginning whereby you can place a bid for the finished Photo Print Memorabillia. The auction for the print will take place at the ExplorOz National Gathering
however even if you can't attend you can bid by proxy in the lead up to the event (stay tuned for more information).
The response to EOTrackMe
has been fantastic, with many new devices being registered since its
original launch. Since then, we have been busy fine tuning its functionality. Members using an iPhone now have the ability to share their location with other EOTrackMe
users, as well as viewing their current location/route. In addition to this, iPhone users now have ‘store and forward’ support – meaning that your route can be stored when you do not have phone coverage and forwarded when service returns. To follow the ExplorOz
members using EOTrackMe, or to register yourself
