I'm not seeing any T&C anywhere. While I wouldn't expect a FS comp to be a rights grab, I would like to see if the comp is open to me in Australia. These type of things so often are not.

My Sunbounce strap is very comfortable and has a kevlar going through it for security, Maybe if there was kevlar going through this one it would be worth a a look.

My registration to the forum keeps getting rejected. Saying I don't meet the requirements. Too bad that there are no requirements given anywhere in the registration process. Also the facebook signup does not work. Cool... Why did I produce this photo If I can't even enter...

Sorry dude. We're working on that. You can submit images here if you like!

Ok, here we go. I'm not wearing my camera. I'm levitating it - or dropping. However you wanna see it. Therefore I desperately need that strap! :)

it'll be difficult to show how I wear my camera while shooting with it. Time to get creative!

About 25% of the time I have the strap around my neck, and 75% i just have it twisted around my wrist... I'd love to try one of your straps! Hope I win!

My Zorki rangefinder is kept safe with a homemade strap - an old leather dog leash.  Naturally, the strap looks best on my girlfriend!

Okay, to be honest this may be a little exaggerated, but it's not a joke though, I actually use a shoestring as camerastrap. Eventhough i've worked my way around it, an actual one would come in handy!

I hold it almost 99% at the wrist and I think Joby's strap at the wrist would be great..

:). So, when will the winners be announced?

I always wear my camera with the strap around my wrist. A couple loops around keeps it secure if I were to drop the camera, and it's a lot more comfortable than having it around my neck. I'm tall which means that the camera never sits at a convenient position if it's around my neck. I'd love to have a sling style strap to allow me to go hands free without putting the camera back in the bag.
