We're happy to announce this month's winners; it's a predictably diverse group of citizen reporters in keeping with the demographics of our 6,000 reporters worldwide.

In first place is OMNI featured writer Michael Werbowski, who is based in Europe. He wrote an article titled "Is Mexico Ripe for US Intervention?," an analysis of how US commanders are "consulting with Mexican counterparts in a prelude to possible military action." He has also written a follow-up titled "Mexico Wary of US Help With Its Drug Wars."

Mr. Werbowski will receive 300,000 Korean won.

Second prize is a photo essay on Korea's War Memorial in Seoul by Canadian photographer and writer Colin Moore. Titled "Missions, Medals, Leaders," he writes: "As with most of the halls here, the War History Room is a good example of how the memorial can vary its presentation. Maps, models, relics, documents and diaramas tell the story of Korea at war." Please check out his 100,000 Korean won winning article.

And the third prize of 100,000 Korean won goes to OMNI's longtime film critic Brian Orndorf, for his review of "Race to Witch Mountain." Mr. Orndorf, an OMNI featured writer, has written hundreds of reviews for us over the years, and you can find them by clicking on this link, or by looking at the external reviews on the Internet Movie Database (IMDB.com).

Congratulations to all our winners. Stay tuned for our April results and if you have a story you think would be of interest to OhmyNews readers, please get writing!
