It was a tough haul to assess, grade and rank the excellent ATV Orbital Photo Contest images submitted from around the world (that’s why we’re a bit late announcing the winners).
All were great for one or more reasons, and on behalf of ESA’s entire ATV team, we’d like to publicly thank Don Thomas, Yujiro Suzuki, Taichi Iwamoto, Meire Ruiz, Patrick Faucon and Marco Langbroek for their great work.
Without further ado, it’s my pleasure to announce the top three winners!
1st place – Many ATVs seen in orbit – Don Thomas, UK
2nd place – ATV-3 seen against deep blue dawn sky – Yujiro Suzuki, JP
3rd place – Eddie seen from here – Marco Langbroek, NL
We’ll contact Don, Suzuki-san and Marco via email to arrange sending their prizes.
Top place wins a fabulous 1:125 ATV + ISS + Ariane model kit “Mission Jules Verne” produced the famous French model-making company Heller.
Our 2nd & 3rd place winners will receive a selection of very cool ATV-branded items via post.
Thank you for following us here in the blog and for your continuing interest in Europe’s ATV missions to the ISS.
