    kinda unfair to entrants for this competition actually.

    Initially they had TWO separate categories, namely Digital Camera Shots or Handphone MMS shots, with 3 winners for each category.

    With a few days left into the competition, they merged both categories, with 2 first prizes etc WITHOUT INFORMING THE PUBLIC.

    And the winners, none of the photos had come from handphone shots, how come like that?! So in the end, what happen to the competitors of the handphone shots category, forgotten and not even mentioned, ohwells, quite irresponsible in my humble opinion.
