Volunteer photographers take up challenge in our Summer Competition
Some of our top 100 volunteers Earlier this year we set our volunteer photographers an additional challenge, not only did we want them to take fantastic photographs of England's listed buildings, we also wanted them to take as many photographs as possible in the summer months.

Considering that each photograph can take a volunteer several visits to a location to set up, requires the right weather and light conditions, plus all the accompanying paper work, this was no small feat.

But the rewards were worth the effort, if a volunteer made it as one of the top 100 volunteers who submitted the most films, they could win some great prizes such as a behind the scenes tour of the Sky professional processing department, films, hand finished prints, English Heritage day passes, discounted membership and vouchers to spend at Sky. The competition ran from 1st May to 30th September 2004, and what a competition it turned out to be. To give some idea of the level of completed photographs achieved during the time, no less than 164 volunteers submitted 2 or more films � that's a minimum of 72 photographs each in just 153 days!

And if you're thinking �I could do that, I can shoot a roll of film in an instant�, bear in mind our volunteers can only take one photograph of each building � they can't take a roll of film and then choose the best shot of the building. This means that each photograph takes planning to get the best light, choosing the right angle and even finding the building can take time.

So congratulations and well done to our top 100 volunteers and thanks to all our volunteers for all their hard work making Images of England one of the largest free on-line digital photo-library in the world.
