Go Read the April 2011 Corner Newsletter

It came down to the wire again this month - but at least I have a decent excuse (surgery). But, at least in the timezone I'm in, I got the April newsletter out while it was still April. With 5 hours to spare, even. ;) If you're a member of the Corner, it should be waiting for you in your inbox. If for some reason you're not a member or it didn't show up, you can read it online here.

The newsletter was sponsored by one of our favorite sponsors, PrintedArt. If you haven't checked them out, take a minute or two to drop by their site. Without sponsors like PrintedArt, the Corner probably wouldn't even be around, and you definitely wouldn't have a newsletter to read. ;) Now what are you waiting for? Go read the newsletter already - there's important stuff in there!

Time to Vote for the April Photograph of the Month

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…). One of the benefits of being a Premiere Member is the ability to nominate photographs throughout the month for the PotM. 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.
