The winner of the April competition is Jeremy Marsden who joined Kokoda Spirit on the 16 to 25 April 2011 trek.
“Jeremy, this is a fantastic photo that will evoke memories for every trekker who has set out in the early morning shrouded in mist.
The magic that follows, as trekkers know, is when the mist lifts and reveals the stunning beauty of the jungle and the track.”
The winner of the May competition is Jade Day who trekked 9 to 18 May 2011 trek.
“Jade, congratulations on capturing this beautiful, reflective moment of your guide, Henry.
So many trekkers have felt and been grateful for the support & friendship from the Kokoda Spirit guides and porters.
What a bonus it is to experience time with these wonderful people.”
The winner of the June competition is John Snooks who trekked 27 June to 6 July 2011.
“John, your photo shows brilliantly how small we are in comparison to the mighty jungle along the Kokoda Track.
Often when trekking we forget to look around but what beauty we see when we do pause for a moment and take in the surroundings.
The winner of the August competition is Andrew Duerden who trekked 6 to 14 July 2011.
Andrew, your photo, Naming the Fallen – Dawn Service Brigade Hill, captures poignantly, simply and beautifully a moment along the Track when we who follow, remember those who went before us.
The Services, held to honour those who fought along the Kokoda Track, are always very moving and add significantly to the memories trekkers bring home with them.
The winner of the September competition is Peter Ranasinghe who trekked with Kokoda Spirit 29 August to 6 September 2011.
“Peter, your photo of the sunset at Ioribaiwa is absolutely breathtaking.
The result of the fire earlier in the day has captured a beautiful array of colour and I am sure for you this was a truly magical moment.â€
The winner of the October competition is Andy Benton who trekked 17 to 25 September 2011.
“Andy, congratulations, your beautiful photo of the village is one of the joys trekkers discover along the Kokoda Track.
The villages are a welcome sight for trekkers after hours of hard walking and when they are as picturesque as this they can literally take your breath away.
Rest periods in the villages across the Track and time spent with the local people are treasured memories.
