CWA readers clearly are a talented bunch: we were overwhelmed by the huge number and high quality of the entries for our first CWA photographic competition. It gave our judge, Adam Stanford of Aerial-Cam, a truly difficult task in picking a winner. From Classical temples to remote Maya ruins, arty shots to scientific documentation, artefacts to romantic vistas, comedy moments, and cheeky animals, all archaeological life was here. The standard of technical ability and variety in style were beyond our expectations.  But we did manage to whittle it down, and Adam made his final decisions. So we are delighted to present the winner and (in no particular order) the runners-up:
