Last few days to enter to Win a Canon PowerShot D10 (closed)

Updated Monday, 18 April 2022

It’s water-proof, freeze-proof, shock-proof (so basically, adventure-proof) and it’s up for grabs here. Submit your adventure story and WIN a Canon PowerShot D10 from South Africa Explored.

Think about that day on which you had the time of your life and got the story you’ve been telling for years, but were too worried to take your camera with you, knowing it wouldn’t survive the knocks you were worrying about surviving yourself.

Or tell us your future plans for this rugged, all-weather, point-and-click camera. Be creative, let your ideas come to life – dreaming is the first step to achieving.


See the winning entry here: Winner Canon PowerShot D10 would like to thank all participants for their entries – we where overwhelmed by the number of entries and the high quality of “Adventure Stories” we received and picking a single winner was not an easy task. Whilst we would have liked to open the selection of a winner to our readers via a voting system, participants felt it was not fair as we had promised to pick and announce the winner here by the 1st July. So we were left with the difficult task of selecting only one from hundreds of entries, of which 10 entries stood out as being “winners”.

We finally called in a panel of 5 independant persons (two of which are travel writers) and left the selection to them. 4 out 5 chose the winning entry as their first choice and the fifth person picked it as their second choice. Congratulations to Paul Mitchell – his winning entry can be seen here.
