MotoringFile March Photo Contest Results


We’re back with the second installment of the MotoringFile Photo Contest, this time for March. Last month saw over 160 photos from our 260 group members, which is slightly fewer than last month, yet it was somehow harder to choose just a handful! (And, yes, that’s our excuse for not getting the picks made until this late into April….) The creativity, skill and sheer luck continue to leave your intrepid judges just a little bit breathless.

And so, without further ado, here are the winners of the March 2007 MotoringFile photo contest!

First Place

Picture 003

The grand prize this month goes to the one known only as “minir50cooper”, a relative newcomer to Flickr. Mr. (or Ms.) MiniR50Cooper, please step up and claim your MotoringBadges grille badge!
