A reader pointed out yesterday in the Comments section of the post on Motor Trend's "Automotive Photo of the Year" contest that Road & Track was also running the exact same contest. Unlike the MT contest, however, which offers a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT as its grand prize, R&T is giving away the nicer Canon EOS 20D. Kind of weird that R&T is offering a better camera from the same company for virtually the same contest. I'm assuming, of course, that Canon is providing the cameras to both free of charge. Check out a comparison of the two Canons here. Don't get me wrong, we're a big fan of Canon cameras here and a Digital Rebel XT is still a great digital SLR that could easily take photos of high enough quality to appear in both these mags.
