From New York to Beijing, hundreds of our readers sent us pictures of their world travels for Flash 2009. We proudly present our five favourites. First place – and a trip for two to anywhere Air Canada flies in North America – goes to Edmonton’s Evan Noble, for his photo of a fish market display, printed in the August issue. Don’t miss the magazine next month, when we kick off the 2010 contest.
