We wanted you to go close and only gave you a couple of days show us your shots – Here are the quick and talented winners of our Get Close Flash Rumble!
Thanks to all of you who submitted a photo or five to our Get Close Flash Rumble – This truly was a tough one to judge. Well done to the msnicks who is awarded 15 Piggies for the great photo above and congrats also to our 2 runners-up, xabimetal_13 and soleado who get 5 Piggies each for their artistic close-up shots below! But the Flash Rumble fun isn’t over yet – stay tuned for a new competition tomorrow where we’ll also be giving you a clearer clue about our new mystery product!
There is nothing better than a photo shot at the perfect moment. Henri Cartier-Bresson's principle on "The Decisive Moment" is a principle that we should still follow to this day. A perfectly-timed photo creates impact, whether it's one of a friend jumping into the pool or a couple emerging from the ceremony on their wedding day. For this rumble, we want to see that breathtaking moment, shot at the perfect time. And you showed us what it's like to be on time.
Just last month, we gave you the opportunity to win beautifully illustrated goodies from UK-based illustrator Helena Carrington. From over 1000 entries, Helena herself has personally picked her Top 3 images and we are happy to announce the winners of Helena Carrington notebooks and cushions.
As contenders for the Nixon Surf Challenge title confronted the swell and unforgiving weather in Kamchatka, Russia, we challenged you to show us what the ‘riding life’ is all about through your analogue photos. Nixon has announced the Surf Challenge winner – it’s time we announced ours.

We asked you if your photos were worthy of having their own exhibit, from the accidental shot that was taken from your hip or even the posed perfection you asked of your subjects. And you delivered! Check out the exhibit-worthy winners!
