Nikonians Photo Contest Awards
2005

It is with great pleasure that we celebrate the achievements of the Nikonians who chose to participate in the 2005 Nikonians Photo contest.

Nikonians was founded to share, learn and inspire amongst Nikon users, in a friendly and creative environment. Over 2005, the Nikonians members Galleries grew from almost 15,000 images to 34,000; images we thoroughly enjoyed.

Nikon USA and Tamrac sponsored our contest with exciting prizes. To them, our high appreciation.

Entries to the contest doubled from last year and each of the single monthly winners in both the Color and Black & White categories was invited to enter the finals. A wonderful collection of 24 images was the result.
