And the Winner is.....Ted!

Ted is a wonderful photographer, and I’m not the only one who thinks so. Ted won a photography competition of winter photos in Hokkaido! Yesterday we went to Sapporo for the awards ceremony.

Here is Ted with his winning photo of his university students on an ice fishing trip. (Yes, this is what he gets to do for a living - and he likes doing it!)

Here are all of the winning photos.

Several of the “officials” and judges spoke, then the awards were given out. It was very Japanese, with lots of bowing and handing the plaques and prizes with two hands.

Not only did Ted win the plaque, he also won a 10,000 yen travel voucher.


Maybe we’ll travel somewhere new in Hokkaido, so he can take more pictures!

Congratulations Ted. I hope you enjoy your travel voucher. Excellent prize for intrepid travellers such as yourselves. I worked for JTB in Auckland for nearly 21 years but was laid off in their "great restructure" of 2009. Tourism is a fickle business!
