UWOL #1 Prize

Is there a prize (other then bragging rights of course) for the first ever UWOL Challenge?

Not me Lisa, I'm a fringe drawback by nature ...

But as I'm trying to decide on my first laptop what I want to know is what sort of laptop you use and do you ever use it in the great outdoors and if so for what ... rough idea of RAM, hard-drive & graphics card, if you have USB ports and a firewire port, would help me, if you'd be so kind ... might be an idea for a Prize too, if you can recommend it for uwol locations ...

A laptop as a prize? That would be insane hehe. I bet there'd be even more entries for that (those poor judges).

yep...probably won't be announced until after the entries are completed, since our contest is still in its infancy, but a sweet little prize package is in the works...

Thanks!

Thank you kindly Lisa for your helpful email. You're quite right; I should not have sneaked in my unrelated question on your thread.

Go on, nominate your choice of first prize (obviously not a laptop, your's is a beauty) and the best of luck with your entry.

I think our winning price in this challenge, first of all,
is getting out there and catch some wildlife on tape.
... and most of all, it's fun too :-)

... second price, is to look at your edition of "The living skies", and learn something, at least, thats my opinion.

... third price?
... well I don't mind hanging on the Winners circle either ;-)
