Peace Camp, a celebration of coastal beauty and the language of love, took place over four summer nights at eight special encampments around the country
ran in AP last year and was sponsored by Olympus, who provided each of the
winning photographers with an Olympus SZ31MR compact camera.
AP readers were
tasked with taking dawn or dusk shots of one of the Peace Camp sites, capturing
the spectacular orange glow of the specially lit tents as seen in one of the winning images of a camp at Cuckmere Haven by John Franklin, above.
