And the Winner of UWOL Challenge #1 is......

Aloha and congratulations to all those who submitted work to the first
Underwater and Over Land video contest. There were a lot of great
entries, and it was a pleasure to see all the good stuff created by our
community here at DVINFO.NET.

One film-maker turned in work that we considered comparable to that seen on National Geopgraphic and Nova. It had everything going for it including
beautiful images, (both technically and artistically) a wonderful sound track that featured both recorded nature audio and appropriately
chosen music well blended together. But, what was most impressive was that this video was crafted in such a way as to revere Nature's grandeur and infuse the viewer with the author's infectious love of it.

The winner of the the first DVINFO.NET UWOL challenge is,
"From Sea to Peak2" by Per Johan.

First Runner Up: "The Living Skies", by Paul Wags.

Second Runner Up: "Wind Country", by Gordon Hoffman

Third Runner Up: "Home To Roost" by Mat Thompson

A big THANKS for all the other creators who put their best efforts forth.
You have the next contest to look forward to winning.

Peace and Love,

Jacques Mersereau

Well done indeed, Per Johan; it's great for all mankind when natural beauty is revealed and, in this case, cherished by critical acclaim. You're a star and don't you go far away from us now; you'll be needed around UWOL for generations to come.

And well done to Paul and Gordon and Mat, too. Snapping at Per's heels you all were and that's the way to keep raising the bar for the rest of us.

I was so captivated by your work I had to watch it over and over and just couldn't get enough of it. It was visual poetry and well deserving of first place.

Congratulations!!!
