Finally, the wait is over! Four special guest judges have helped in selecting the winning photographs from the recent 'Your Brunei' Twitter contest, where tweeps were invited to tweet back photographs to the theme 'Your Brunei'. *drum-roll please!*

Note by @SuperAdrianMe: I like this picture because it shows the people in tudongs and the architecture of the stadium...and mass participation by the people.
Note by @SuperAdrianMe: I picked this because I see friendships and happiness. I interpret that the person who took this is trying to say that my Brunei is me and my friends.
@RDZMusic - RDZ, pronounced Arr Dee Zee, is a Malaysian Businessman, Music Producer and Hip Hop Artist. Born in Kuching, RDZ is the founder of MAKE Records, a publishing and recording company. Check out his single “We Can’t Stop” and read more about him here. These are his selections.
Note by @RDZMusic: The Costa Romantica cruise started in 1993 and is still going strong...the framing technique of the picture is...excellent.
Note by @RDZMusic: The mosque captures the essence of Brunei as a country.
Note by @MalaysiaAsia: Even though this was captured inside a car, I like the single brake light against the sunset.
Note by@MalaysiaAsia: The candid moment was perfect, expressions were great and the composure was very nice!
The Bruneian @MicBandits grouped up in 2006, consisting of Zed Peace, The Kro, and Khaos. In 2009, they were signed up by Kartel Records, and their next album - Mahkota, will be their first international release. The picture up top is of the fellas donning the limited edition @BruneiTweet t-shirt. You can read more about the Bandits here. These are their selections. Note by : We find it necessary to reflect back on things to be more appreciative; the ups and downs are what shapes you. What better way to do it than at a serene and tranquil place?
By @Emmaanas (Yes, two of her photographs were selected by the judges!) Note by : We agreed that this represented the foundation of a Bruneian; family. Anyone will remember the many times they've spent at the beach with their families and friends...a true Bruneian getaway.
Last but not least, yours truly has selected the following photographs.
Editor's Note: Asides from the brilliant photography, this photograph is inspiring to me because it reminds me that Brunei has much to offer the rest of the world.
Editor's Note: Kampung Ayer - where our Nation's history meets tomorrow's hopes and dreams.
Editor's Note: Everyone has a story. The rich colours reminds me of this.
