Nessie hunters compete for 1,000 prize

'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."

Gotta keep up the hike..Lock Ness is a dark dismal place , not really a place to spend much time there. But the tourist shop has bright lights and you can buy an ice cream from the van. So gotta keep up the hike. It just goes to show how people view the world differently. Loch Ness is one of the most beautiful places I've been to.

Yes, but 1000 for a pic of a floating log or the wake from a passing boat or current is pretty impressive Perhaps I should enter this - http://www.unexplained-mysteries.com/forum/index.php?app=gallery&module=images&section=viewimage&img=6300
