Vote for the First PotM of 2010

It seems a little counter-intuative, but around the Corner, we vote for the Photograph of the Month the week before the month starts. So the last week of May, we vote on the June Photograph of the Month, the last week of August we vote on the September Photograph of the Month, so therefore, since it’s the last week of December, we’re currently casting our ballots for the January 2010 Photograph of the Month. The logic is that the winner of the vote (albeit from photographs posted in the previous month) will have their photograph displayed in the month they won the contest. So the winner of the January 2010 Photograph of the Month contest, while voted on in the last week of December 2009, will actually be displayed on the homepage of PhotographyCorner for the entire month of January 2010. Makes sense, right?

All that being said, now is the time to cast your vote. Here, around the Corner, judges don’t pick the contest winners - the community does - that means YOU! To check out the entries, stop by the January 2010 Photograph of the Month Photo Gallery, then login to your PhotographyCorner account and cast your vote in the voting thread (the photos are posted in the voting thread as well). The winner will be announced, once voting is complete, on January 1st, 2010.

The January 2010 PotM is being sponsored by Daymen Photo Marketing and Lowepro, and if the winner is a Premiere Member, they will receive a Lowepro Topload Zoom 2 Camera Bag and 10 PhotographyCorner Pens. If the winner is not a Premiere Member, they will receive a Lifetime, Level 1 Premiere Membership.

Voting ends at approximately 7:30pm EST on Thursday, December 31st, 2009 (12:30am GMT), so check out the entries and cast your vote today!
