"It was an exciting year for the Contest." Director Chris Gray added. "The quality of the entries keeps on improving. It took the judges several weeks to select 18 finalists from all entries and then choose the 3 final winners. The growth rate of our community remains growing itself, and as our Systems Engineering team migrates the Nikonians Members Galleries to new servers within the next few weeks, we expect to see a big expansion in the number of participants. We are also very happy to see our enthusiastic sponsors adding to the prestige and attractiveness of our contests."
Congratulations to all participants and to the winners.More information on this link for the 2007 Nikonians Photo Contest
