The second annual International Garden Photographer of the Year competition closed on January 31st 2009. I found some really awesome photos from the entries and post them in this blog. And if you are interested and also a photography-lover, here is the detail of the competition.

There is a kind of war without blood, still intense, but with some wisdom and some fun. That is the topic of today’s post – Ads War.
First Round : Nikon vs Lumix
Nikon – Face focus “no matter ghost face, human face, Skeleton, peeper, I can find them all.”
A competition called “Tea-off” held sponsored by “World Kitchen” has announced its winner for 2009. There are 237 entries and finally, we got three winners and 25 honorees. Followings are the picture of three winnes, the first one is my favorite, that is really cool.
1. ONE Teakettle designed by Dan Chung, Tony Ruth, Steve Abueva and Mike Serafin
ONE is a single vessel designed to both boil and serve, enabling a simpler, more direct user experience. The ONE Teakettle has an intuitive magnetic trivet that attaches to the base only when the kettle is hot, so the user can bring it directly to the table for serving.
Decorative graphic patterns are applied with thermochromic inks, which become visible as the water boils. This visual cue that the water is ready also creates an elegant aesthetic at the table.
Recently, Nokia just successfully hold a Headset competition invited people to enter their designs for a Nokia Bluetooth headset inspired by their favorite piece of music.
There are over 7,500 entries and the five winning designers will be given the chance to turn their concepts into bespoke, fully functioning Nokia headsets, which will be showcased at flagship stores all over the world and returned back to them to keep forever.
I am not totally with the five winning designs, from my views, there are some even cooler designs. I am going to list some my favorite design. For the full gallery of all the entries, you can visit the Nokia Music Almight competition website.
One winner was the winged “I’m flying!” based on R. Kelly’s song I Believe I Can Fly, created by rodshakur
