Pick the Winner of the June 2011 Photograph of the Month Contest

Pretty much every month over the past 7+ years, when it’s the last week of the month rolls around, we know it’s time to vote for the best photos posted up over the past month. Sure we’re not the only site that posts up a photograph of the month, but there aren’t many that feature the quality of photos we display each month, and certainly not many that give away prizes to the winner each month - and then to let the community decide each month? I think that makes the PhotographyCorner Photograph of the Month pretty unique.

Here’s how it works: Over the course of the month, 20,000+ of you post up photos in the forums and galleries. Premiere Members can nominate the best photos they come across throughout the month. With a week to go, I narrow down the nominations to the top 15 or so, and post them up in the contest galleries. Then the community has a week to browse through the galleries and cast their vote in the voting threads. On the first of the month, we count the vote, declare a winner, and give them a prize!

You can check out the June 2011 Photograph of the Month contest gallery here, then head on over to the voting thread to cast your vote before June 1st. The contest this month is being sponsored by Acme Made (Founded in 2002, Acme Made specializes in designing protective accessories for today’s modern lifestyle. The company is best known for incorporating innovative textiles and materials with contemporary styling to produce attractive bags, cases and sleeves for laptops, eReaders, smart phones, and digital cameras. Acme Made is “Designed Protection.”). If the winner is a Premiere Member, they will receive their choice between several Acme Made camera bags/laptop sleeves/e-reader cases. If the winner is not a Premiere Member, they will receive a Lifetime, Level I Premiere Membership.

So head on over to the June 2011 PotM Gallery to check out the 15 fantastic photos from the past month, then make sure to cast your vote before June 1st!

New Nikonkidforever Picks Up 1st Photograph of the Month Victory

May 2011 Photograph of the MonthHe joined the Corner 2 weeks ago, had a photo nominated for the Photograph of the Month contest, and earlier today it was announced that he won his first Photograph of the Month. We’re talking, of course, of Nikonkidforever and the May 2011 Photograph of the Month contest. But I mean, with a photograph like this, it’s not wonder it took over 21% of the votes - it’s a spectacular capture of a bald eagle.

The contest was sponsored by out friends at DayMen Photo Marketing (an innovative manufacturer and distributor of high quality imaging products and accessories) and Lowepro (inventors and designers of popular camera bags, photographers and lovers of the natural world who take their reputation as The Trusted Original™ to heart). Since Jere was not a Premiere Member (tisk, tisk), he’ll receive a Lowepro Cirrus 100 camera bag (a small, but surprisingly cute and useful camera bag).

If you haven’t already, take a browse through the May 2011 Photograph of the Month Photo Gallery and see the photos that were nominated for the title this month, then make sure to swing by the award thread to congratulate Jere on his first PotM win (and to welcome him to the Corner - he’s only been here 2 weeks!).

Pick Your Favorite Photo for the May 2011 PotM

As many have noticed, there are quite a few images from “new” members up for the May 2011 Photograph of the Month. Don’t believe me? Check out the line-up here in the May 2011 Photograph of the Month Photo Gallery. See many names you recognize? To be fair, there have been a bunch of new members join the forum that have migrated over from another forum recently, so it’s not like the folks new to the Corner are new to photography. And I guess it makes sense that new members will post up some of their best work as a “photographic introduction.” That’s my theory, at least. Either way, it’s great to see a lot of new photographers represented in the Photograph of the Month contest.

It’s not like you didn’t have enough to vote on already (hint: make sure to cast your vote for Contest Corner Challenge #84 here), but it’s the last week of the month, which means it’s time to vote for the upcoming Photograph of the Month. Around here, we vote on the last week of each month to decide which photograph, posted up in the forums and galleries, should receive the honor of being displayed on the homepage (which is why we vote on the April PotM in March…).

I have the priviledge of wading through the 50-100 nominations and whittling them down to 15. Check out the top 15 photographs posted to the Corner in the past month in the April 2011 Photograph of the Month Photo Gallery.

Once you’ve spent some time browsing through the 15 fantastic nominations this month, head on over to the voting thread to cast your vote. You have until approximately 9:30pm EST on Thursday, March 31st, 2011 (1:30am GMT on Friday, April 1st, 2011) to make your vote count.

Randy Brogen wins the March 2011 PotM

March 2011 Photograph of the MonthDespite the fact that February is the shortest month of the year, there were still a lot of fantastic photographs posted up in the Corner Forums and the Corner Galleries last month. A week ago, we whittled down all the great photographs to 15, and the community went out to decide which was the best of the bunch. When the proverbial voting dust settled, RandyBrogen’s photo “Winter Sentinal” garnered almost 1/5th of the votes. Check out the March 2011 PotM Photo Gallery here, and the final voting results here.

The contest was sponsored by LaserSoft Imaging, who is renowned worldwide as a pioneer in the field of scanner and imaging software - both in the area of private and professional usage.

Cow Racing by Fadhli is the February 2011 Photograph of the Month

February 2011 Photograph of the Month - Cow Racing by fadhliWhen I think of sports, the first things that comes to mind are hockey, football, baseball, basketball, lacrosse… you know, stuff like that. On the list of sports, one would have to think that “Cow Racing” is pretty low on the list. Maybe that’s why fadhli’s photo of cow racing received so many votes this past month (plus it’s a great capture).

The contest was sponsored by LaserSoft Imaging, who is renowned worldwide as a pioneer in the field of scanner and imaging software - both in the area of private and professional usage. Since Fadhli is not a Premiere Member, he will receive a copy of the SilverFast DC VLT (software that will help you organize, manage and review images in an easy way - an $85 Value).

If you check out the voting results, you’ll see that “Cow Racing” by fadhli received almost 30% of the votes - and it was the first photograph he posted at PhotographyCorner. 1 for 1 - not bad! If you haven’t already, congratulate Fadhli on his win here in the award thread. Let’s see if he can do it again next month (I wonder what other interesting sports there are in West Sumatra?).

You've Gotta Decide: February 2011 Photograph of the Month

We do things a little differently here around PhotographyCorner. In retrospect, maybe it’s a little confusing, but it’s how we’ve done it for almost 7 years. I’m talking, of course, about how each Photograph of the Month contest seemingly happens a month too early. I mean, right now the community is voting on the February 2011 Photograph of the Month, and it’s not even February yet??! Here’s the rationale behind it: The winner of this vote (which will be announced on February 1st) will be displayed on the homepage of PhotographyCorner.com for the month of February, therefore it will be the “February 2011 Photograph of the Month,” not the best photograph taken in the month of February. The best photograph taken in the month of February, will be voted on at the end of February, but will be displayed as the March Photograph of the Month. See how that works? Hopefully that helps it make a little more sense.

Anyways, down to business. Voting started last night. You can check out the 15 photographs up for the February 2011 Photograph of the Month honors in the February 2011 PotM Photo Gallery here. Then, before voting ends at approximately 2:00am EST (7:00am GMT) on Tuesday, February 1st, 2011, head on over to the voting thread/poll and cast your vote (the photos are also posted in the voting thread). Double congrats to Putunetika and benas, who both have 2 photos up this month!

The First 2011 Photograph of the Month Winner Is...

January 2011 Photograph of the MonthThe first Photograph of the Month victory of 2011, an untitled photograph by Danielle_T, easily won the majority of the votes, with over 1/3rd of the total votes. As always, you can check out the final voting results in the voting thread (here). This not only marks the first PotM win of 2011, but also the first PotM for Danielle Tunstall, a UK photographer with a unique portfolio (which can be viewed in full on her website www.danielletunstall.com). While most of Danielle’s photographs are “portraits,” they tend to have a dark and disturbing feel to them; “I don’t do my work to shock or gore for gores sake, I’m simply making visual comments on life and the human species. The evening news is far more upsetting than anything I could ever produce - and that is fact. My work is purely fiction based on reality,” comments Danielle on her photography.

The contest was sponsored by the Lead Sponsor of the PhotographyCorner.com 2010 Photograph of the Year contest: PrintedArt. This marks the 4th Photograph of the Month contest sponsored by PrintedArt, who have donated over $1,000 in prizes so far. PrintedArt is an online collection of emerging and established fine art photography sold as finished artwork on advanced display material such as acrylic and aluminum dibond. Photographers can also use the PrintedArt photolab to print their own work on the same modern display material. Since Danielle is a Premiere Member, she will receive a production of their photograph on aluminum dibond with acrylic finish (maximum length or height of 20 inches - a $150 value).

If you haven’t already, make sure to drop by the award thread to congratulate Danielle on her first Photograph of the Month victory!

August is coming to a close (I can’t believe it’s almost September already), and that means it’s time for us to cast our votes for the upcoming Photograph of the Month. Every month, during the last week of each month, the PhotographyCorner community gets together and the Premiere Members nominate photographs posted to the Corner from the past month (in the forums or galleries). I have the arduous job of narrowing down those nominations to 15 or so photographs. Then the community has 7 days to cast their vote. Around the first of each month, the winner is announced and is featured on the homepage of PhotographyCorner for the entire month.

You can check out the 15 photographs up for the honors here in the September 2010 Photograph of the Month Photo Gallery, then head on over to the voting thread to make your decision. The contest is sponsored by M-Rock, a leading manufacturer of high quality camera, camcorder, lens bags, sling-backpacks and travel cases for professional photographers and enthusiasts. If the winner is a Premiere Member, they will receive a M-Rock Yellowstone 651 Holster Camera Bag (read the newly posted review of it here). If the winner is not a Premiere Member, they will receive a M-Rock Mesa Verde 644 Compact Camera Bag (read the newly posted review of it here).

There are some fantastic photographs up for the September 2010 Photograph of the Month, including two by Scott111184, Eric Diller and cup4tml. So make sure to swing by the award thread before the end of the month to cast your vote. On September 1st, we’ll announce the winner and award them with a new M-Rock camera bag and Photograph of the Month honors!
