We want to thank everyone who participated in the Reality Tours Photo Contest. We were thrilled by the outpouring of response to this contest and had a very difficult time selecting the winner; there were many excellent photos to choose from. We have posted below just a few of the top entries to the contest.
The winner of the 2006 contest was Stephen Kerpen of Los Ojos, New Mexico, whose photo of Palestinian children in East Jerusalem holding olive tree branches touched our hearts.
If you did not have a chance to send us your photos but were interested in doing so, please consider entering next year's photo contest!
