Arrow FTU and e-group photo competition winners revealed

Four Thirds User (Fourthirds-user.com) is a sibling site to the e-group.

It's been a long wait, sorry about that, but today the winners of the two autumn competitions run by Four Thirds User and sibling site Olympus UK E-System User Group can be revealed.

As usual, judging such a high quality of entries was very difficult and as you can see in the short-list galleries for Micro Four Thirds and Four Thirds entries deemed head and shoulders above the average.

CONGRATULATIONS ULFRIC

Well deserved result against formidable competition.
Congratulations also to the runners up and short listed entries.I'm not surprised it took the judges a while to decide the outcome, an incredibly high standard all round.
Very interesting that the DSLR entries far exceeded the m4/3 entries and that the winning 4/3 entry was taken with an E-400 and kit zoom.

Congratulations to all.

Re: FTU and e-group photo competition winners revealed

Congratulations to the winners and all those shortlisted and a big, big thank you to Ian and Olympus for running this competition. I'm not surprised that judging took so long, bearing in mind that there was not just one, but two competitions and that the standard of entries was so high! My entry in the FT competition was shortlisted so I'm happy with that and will keep my fingers crossed for it's inclusion in the book.

I think the reason FT entries eclipsed MFT in volume is that FT has been around a lot longer than its more recent cousin. I've certainly got a much larger collection of pictures taken with DSLRs than with Pens, but in recent months have used my E-P3 much more than my E-3. Run this competition again in a couple of years (now there's an idea!) and the balance between FT and MFT entries might be very different.

Re: FTU and e-group photo competition winners revealed

Many congrats to the winners and runners-up, and thanks to Ian and crew for doing it all. I find it hard enough to judge a monthly comp with a dozen entries so this must have been a truly Herculean labour!

Ciao ... John (in a good mood, having made the shortlist thanks to Rawcoll's former 50-200 SWD )

Some great shots there, from both formats, and a real variety of subject matter. It must have been harder to judge it without a theme. Congratulations to winners and shortlistees.

Congratulations to all short-listed and especially to the winners, some stunning images there, I can see it must have been a very difficult challenge to judge.
