'Best Nessie sighting of the year' prize to go to one of three photographs alleged to be of the monster.
Sightings of the Loch Ness monster have decreased in recent years, especially sightings with a good photograph or video footage to back it up. The prize for 'best sighting' hasn't been given out to anyone for 10 years, but thanks to a spree of sightings in 2011 there are now three competitors. The winner will be announced by bookmaker William Hill later this year.
"The last recorded sighting was in 2002, when a postman captured video footage of something moving deep in the water."
