The Hallowe'en Party

Toy Voyagers are sociable beings that sometimes like to gather together in large numbers. This prize is for the best picture to include six or more Voyagers.

WINNER: BEST COSTUME

Many Toy Voyagers simply love to dress to impress. In this category we celebrate a whole variety of sartorial efforts, whether stylish, practical, or just bizarre.

Congratulations to Mara Joy - a fully paid up member of the Red Hat Society - who has scooped this year's Best Costume award.

WINNER: BEST COMEDY

Snegovik

This category was your chance to honour both the accomplished comedians and the genuine fools!

It was a close contest but there could only be one winner, and it was Snegovik who came out on top.  Lending himself very well to comedy episodes, scenes such as this 'Fridge Raid' sequence helped him clinch the prize.

WINNER: BEST SCENERY

The winner in the Best Scenery category is

Björn Bangsi

Toy Voyagers have explored many corners of the earth and been photographed in front of lots of world-famous landmarks as well as in sites of great natural beauty.  We asked you to vote on who has travelled to the most impressive destination.

Spectacular shots of Icelandic geysers and waterfalls clinched it for Björn Bangsi. Congratulations!

WINNER: BEST ACTION

The winner is Brian

Some Toy Voyagers are presumably a bit nervous in front of the camera as they just stand there frozen. Others keep right on moving, just like Brian - who you voted top in the award for the best action shot!

WINNER: CLASSIC

The Classic ToyVoyager is ...

Cassiopeia

This category is for ToyVoyagers who have been around for a long time, have travelled far from their mentors and built up what we consider to be 'classic' travelogs.  We asked you to look at the overall quality of the travelog: the photos, the updates and the journey itself. 

There were loads to choose from - we have narrowed it down to twelve and then you picked Cassiopeia as your winner!

It's not all in the photography... This prize is for the ToyVoyager whose written travelogue entries have proved a source of entertainment and enlightenment in their own right.

WINNER: AUDIENCE FAVOURITE

Snegovik

There maybe no rhyme or reason to it, but there are some Toy Voyagers that simply put smiles on our faces. We asked you which of them would you love to find standing on your doorstep.  Congratulations to Snegovik!

Many thanks for the nice Golden Bear. I love it and Cassiopeia will love it too, of course. Thanks from me to Deborah, to you Isobel and Neil and to all those, who voted for Cassiopeia.
Bye, Petra
