    I've now posted up a brand new section dedicated to the fantastic photo competition here

    Thanks to Alef for the images (and nagging!) and hiccup for the archive pages - I hope that the gallery does justice to al the fine work. With luck, it'll soon get a good listing in google and help publicise the work.

    Note: I've left the urban75 copyright notice in as a precaution, but naturally I'm not claiming copyright! If anyone gets in touch regarding using the images, I'll obviously contact with the photographer

    Thank you, editor! Seeing all the winning photos together is a reminder of just how varied and quirky the styles and tastes in photography can be... which also reflects the make up of the Urbanite community (and people in general).

    Credit and thanks for this winner's gallery is also due to wiskey, she's the one who first started collecting together these photos and half of these would have otherwise been lost.

    Also much appreciate hiccup's consistent work at collecting together the thumbnails: or now also

    Personally I think I'm destined to forever be the "Jimmy White" of the photo competition but then that keeps me motivated to try harder each new month. Pleased to see that Paul Russell has finally won, he's the Urbanite here who clearly is out and about and snapping hardest, oh and also has oodles of talent! Now, hmmm, fast food, time to start thinking about greasy burgers and fries....

    Nice one Mike :D

    But there seem to be some months seem to be missing, ie. Aug (simply summer by Dubber Dan) and Sept (water by Skydancer) 2003 and the May and June 2004 are round the wrong way (also wrong on the archive of thumbnails).

    Also the June 2003 pic is being reshaped to fit the window. It shouldn't be so wide but should be more square

    Other than that tops. Tis really nice to be able to see the winning pics all together at last :cool:

    Right. I've added the new photos, updated the thumbnails, added the new pages, updated the index page - but I don't understand how the 'May and June 2004 are round the wrong way'. According to the archive links here - - they're the right themes for the right months - aren't they?

    And now my hangover's come back.

    thanks mike. An excellent addition to the site and you've made me even more determined to get a good picture for this month.

    the gallery is an excellent effort. only realised that it posts only the winner... :(

    which means should be doing some extra effort to get on to the gallery???

    Fine then. ;)

    There's links to all the entries

    If I had to post up every single entry from every month, I'd never finish the thing.

    bosco i'm a kimberly mikado

    thanks for this mike. it's great looking back at some of the lovely photos from over the years.


    btw - i've finally got my hands on an old mac to use with that film scanner, so i'll be able to scan the 2 or 3 photos of mine that somehow managed to win a couple of years ago.
    i'm probably too late though. poor wiskey has given up nagging me about it.

    Hocus Eye. Snap, crop, scrap crap

    Thanks Mike for that gallery. Urban75 goes from strength to strength. An international photo competition has been an asset to the site since it was started and deserves to be flagged up.
