Prize 3: Photography, 9th edition
by Barbara London, Jim Stone and John Upton 
    From Pierson Prentice Hall

Photography is continually changing, and this version of Photography reflects that change. Digital imaging dominates photography. In the image here, a computer screen displays a cutaway view of a view camera, a type of camera that has been in use since the invention of photography. This edition updates the traditional practice of photog¬raphy as well as updating current technologies. Throughout this new edition, you will find infor¬mation about both conventional film photography and digital capture. Techniques such as lighting and composition, central to both digital and film photography, are presented. This book shows how to make photographs, how to control photographic processes, and how different photographers employ them for their own creative purposes.

Prize 4: Picoo Z X Rotor Micro Helicopte
    From Spectron BV - Silverlit Branch office

The Micro MosquitoThe simplest, toughest and cheapest of the fleet (and with the most inexplicably long name), the Picoo Z is a great beginners chopper. It has no forward or backward control, but is fun to fly straight from the box and is a very good way of learning how to control torque (the side to side swing of a helicopter). It’s absurdly robust, and what you lack in control, you gain in it’s ability to take the inevitable knocks of a novice flier. It’s great for kids, and for those people who really can’t be bothered to read the instructions or grapple with learning how to fly a helicopter. To describe the X Rotor Micro Helicopter - or Pico Z for short - as small is rather like saying that the Pacific Ocean is quite big and somewhat on the damp side. At just 17cm (under 7 inches) long and only 4cm (1.5ins) wide, this gnat of a flying machine is the smallest and lightest miniature R/C Helicopter in the world. How they managed to make this remarkable heli so incredibly small, and yet so astonishingly easy to fly is a mystery, but they did, and we love them for it.

Prize 9 : Ultimate Terrain X Europe
    From Flight One

Designed specifically for FSX, Ultimate Terrain X Europe transforms the FSX world by placing all the real world features you would expect (roads, rivers, railways, coastlines, parks etc) in exactly the same place in FSX - if there is a roundabout at the bottom of your road and you fly over your house in FSX the roundabout will be there.  Ultimate Terrain X Europe achieves this by utilising the very best commercial data available.  As it is the data set being replaced, the performance hit seen with photographic scenery is avoided, and the result is a much smoother integration with FSX. More than simply dropping the accurate data into FSX the development team have gone to great lengths to make this the ultimate “must have” product for FSX.  For example, not only are rivers placed accurately according to the real world position, but if they cross extreme elevation changes then the software also corrects the terrain to avoid otherwise common “sloping water”.  One of the drawbacks of accurate data is that it can prove to be very different from the existing FSX dataset and this has previously caused odd looking bridges and tunnels. In Ultimate Terrain X Europe however, bridges and tunnels entrances are included to make sure that the new roads and railways look right as well as being right.
