I often enter photography competitions and forget that I even entered them! I submitted some bouldering shots that I took in New Zealand to UK magazine Outdoor Photography. When I heard from the editor that I'd won their Reader Gallery for issue 210 I was surprised, but so happy as I'd been sitting on these shots for a while and felt that they were print worthy.

I was sent a Lowepro Photo Sport BP 300 AS II backpack as a prize, and this couldn't have come at a better time as I am looking for a smaller alternative to my Fstop Tilopa backpack. This bag will be perfect for when I next combine an ultra run with my photography.
