  Dear Friends of the Camera You Never Leave Behind,

It has taken Godfrey DiGiorgi and me a very long time to judge the contest entries this year. In part it is because we're busy guys, but mostly it is because you, the members, submitted an enormous number of wonderful pictures. Some of them were fantastic, but of course, Godfrey and I have somewhat different taste in photos. So that meant that we had to spend a lot of time thinking through and discussing by e-mail which pictures were not merely very good, but which were the very best. It's never been so hard before.

In the end, however, we found a set of winners and honorable mentions on which we agreed. Together, we feel they are the best in class (B&W and color) and best portfolios submitted this year. Of course, we recognize that each of you will have different favorites, or will think our choices are great, but that we got the order wrong.

Your opinions are valuable! If somebody steps forward and is willing to commit to the 20 or so hours needed, we'll be happy to add you to the judging committee next year! If enough members volunteer, we'll retire and enter the contest ourselves.

So here are the prize-winning photos in the 2006-07 Minox Historical Society "Get That Minox out of the Drawer; It’s a Camera, not a Dust Collector" contest.

Pete Zimmerman
President, Minox Historical Society
