Photograph of the Month

Shuksan Afternoon is the October 2009 Photograph of the Month

October 2009 Photograph of the MonthYou’re probably as surprised as I was to find out that the winner of the October 2009 Photograph of the Month contest, squirl033 had never received Photograph of the Month honors until now. Winston “Rocky” Rockwell’s PhotographyCorner resume include the winner of the 2006 Photograph of the Year, and he placed third in the 2008 Photograph of the Year contest. But the October 2009 Photograph of the Month marks his first monthly win. The winning photograph titled “Shuksan Afternoon,” is a 5-shot vertical stitch taken in the beautiful Pacific Northwest (Mount Shuksan in Washington).

You can see the other photographs that were nominated for the October 2009 PotM in the Contest Corner Galleries, and browse through the final voting results in the voting thread. The contest was sponsored by Lensbaby.com, and since Rocky is a Premiere Member, he’ll receive the recently reviewed Lensbaby Composer.

Make sure to drop by the award thread to congratulate Rocky on his first Photograph of the Month win!

Uncommon View is the First Premiere Project PotM

Since late 2008, the winner of each Premiere Project has been automatically entered into each Photograph of the Month contest (see this blog post for all the details). None of the Premiere Project winning photographs, however, have ever beat out all the other fantastic photographs posted on the forum in any given month. None until this month, that is. Uncommon View by tamara - the winning photograph from Premiere Project #59 -, by one vote, has been awarded the September 2009 Photograph of the Month.

You can browse through the photographs that were in the running in the September 2009 Photograph of the Month Photo Gallery, and check out the final voting results in the voting thread.

The March 2009 Photograph of the Month is "Mesmerized"

March 2009 Photograph of the MonthEvery month, a new photograph wears the honor of Photograph of the Month here around the Corner. Throughout the month, Premiere Members scour through the forums and galleries and nominate the best photographs they come across. The list is narrowed down, and during the last week of each month, the community votes on the photographs. At the beginning of each month, the winner is revealed and showered with praise and gold (ok, well… they at least get some nice comments and usually a cool prize). This month our winner is one of our newer members (he joined the Corner in February!): takefive with his photograph “Mesmerized.”

Faisal Wins 4th Photograph of the Month

With all the commotion surrounding the 2008 Photograph of the Year contest, it’s easy to forget that we run monthly contests as well. The last week of every month, we vote on the top photographs uploaded to the forums and galleries (nominated by Premiere Members), and we crown the photograph of the month at the beginning of each month. Although most of the voting for the February 2009 Photograph of the Month occurred during the voting in the final round of the 2008 Photograph of the Year contest, we still managed to pick a winner.
