the winning entries (weeks one to four)

Week One Winner (Michael McKillop)
"This is a 50ft long knitted scarf that suddenly appeared one morning along Saltburn's famous Pier but no one knows who actually made it! It's a great example of a community pulling together to make something special. Google it & read all about it!"
Week Three Winner (Huzefa Rangwala)
"In the remote village of Khabiya, some 50 kms from the Pakistan border, I chanced upon these kids who taught me the zest for life. In spite of temperatures touching 50C and uncertainties surrounding the most basic supplies (food, electricity and water), these kids are filled with life most evident from their beaming smiles. It goes on to show what community spirit is all about, even in the most trying conditions. Seen here are sisters Rasili and Gauri fighting for their two minutes of fame in front of the camera, while Himmat (extreme left) makes a funny face to the camera."
Week Two Winner (Saeed Anwar)
"The Full of FUn mOMENT OF US"
