I got my camera for a letter published a couple of years back within about 6 weeks. I still use it. Here it is. The mirror flipped the pic, GIMP flipped it back.

The problem is that camera is supplied by Rackspace, not Linux Format. They sponsor the competition. So the mag has to chase them.
It does surprise me that it's taken this long though. Don't fret. These guys won't let you go without.
