The time has come, our dearest friends, to announce the winners of the 2009 one small seed Network Awards. Last year was a remarkable one, and our network has grown from strength to strength. There have been so many remarkable uploads and members that we cannot possibly honour them all but we're amazed by each and everyone one of you and your remarkable talents. We have great faith that 2010 will build upon the successes of 2009 and that we will see even more talented members and even greater creative works on the network. Keep uploading and keep returning to for your daily dose of inspiration!

All the 2009 award winners will appear in issue 18 of one small seed magazine.

Without further ado, the winners are....

The winner of the 2009 Best Photographer category is none other than Daniel van Flymen. He wins exposure in one small seed magazine, a SIGMA DP1, a two-year subscription to the magazine as well as a certificate to commemorate this achievement. Below is just a selection of images by Daniel.

The picture by Jessica Jones has been crowned the winner of 2009's Best Photograph - congratulations! She wins exposure in one small seed magazine, a SIGMA DP1, a two-year subscription to the magazine and a certificate honouring her achievement.

This year's Best Editorial Contributor award goes to the engaging Sarah Claire Picton. She has been award the opportunity to be contributing editor for several pages in the forthcoming issue of one small seed magazine, an Adobe course sponsored by Friends of Design, a two-year subscription to the magazine and a certificate.

Congratulation to Chris Slabber, who has been selected as the winner of the Best Illustrator / Artist in the 2009 awards. He wins exposure in one small seed magazine, an Adobe course sponsored by Friends of Design, a two-year subscription to the magazine and a certificate.
