Welcome to the last newsletter of the year.

The AP office is pretty much closed down for Christmas now, so there's not much news to report, but in this newsletter you'll find some suggestions for last minute Christmas presents, and some competitions you can enter should you be ready to wind down for the festive period, such as our Where the Duck treasure hunt.

If you find yourself at a loose end this Christmas, of just want to get away from the relatives for a while, why not try one of our Christmas photography projects. From making your own bottle cap tripod to making objects appear to levitate there are a range of great projects you can try out at home. Find them on our technique site: Photo Technique.

It just remains for me to wish you all a 'Very Merry Christmas'. See you next year.

Nigel Atherton, Editor
