Last night I went to the RGS to see the presentation of the inaugral 'Paul Morrison Guide Award' - set up by Wanderlust in memory of the magazine's co-founder Paul Morrison. There were two joint winners and one runner up. The winners were Shes Kanta Sharma (aka KC Bhuwan) who guides in the Annapurna, Nepal (Booked through Escape2Nepal, Tiger Mountain and Himalayan Kingdoms), and Manda Chisanga, who guides in South Luangwa, Zambia (booked through The Bushcamp Company). The runner up was Martin Gray, who guides in Arctic, Antarctica & South Georgia (booked through Exodus and Peregrine Adventures).

It was stirring stuff - and great to see the winners come up on stage and give a little talk. The judges were Lyn Hughes, Bill Bryson, Mark Carwadine and Mark Ellingham. For more details, see the Wanderlust website: www.wanderlust.co.uk
