Vote for the 2012 August Photograph of the Month

The month of July is coming to a close, which means here around the Corner, it’s time to cast our votes for the upcoming Photograph of the Month.

Here’s how it works: Throughout the month, Premiere Members browse through the forums and galleries and nominate the best photographs they come across. When it comes to voting time, I wade through all their nominations and pick the top 10-15 photographs. Then, for 7 days, the community votes, and a winner is announced. The winning photographer has their photograph posted on the homepage of PhotographyCorner for a month, and usually picks up a pretty sweet prize.

You can browse through the 15 photographs up for the August 2012 Photograph of the Month contest here in the August 2012 PotM Photo Gallery. Once you’ve decided which one you think best deserves to be the August 2012 Photograph of the Month, head on over to the voting thread to leave your comments and cast your vote. Voting ends at approximately 1:00am EST on Thursday, August 2nd, 2012 (5:00am GMT).

The contest is being sponsored by Creative Motion Design - A full service shop that helps you get your HTML or Flash website up and running quickly! If you’re looking for something more custom, they have in-house designers just for you. Mobile and iPad friendly, these sites are sure to impress. It’s extremely important to have a great website to show off your business, your photography, and you the photographer. Creative Motion Design believes your website should be simple, beautiful and easy to edit. CMD not only provides amazing website templates but also helps you understand and edit your own site. They also provide a Photo Cart, Website Hosting and much more!

If the winner is a Premiere Member, they will receive a full pro website package, which includes a free HTML or Flash website with photo cart and one year free hosting - a $395 value! If the winner is not a Premiere Member, they will receive a Lifetime, Level I Premiere Membership (and don’t forget that Premiere Memberships are currently on sale for HALF PRICE!!).

So drop by the photo gallery and check out the best photographs from the past month, then cast your vote in the voting thread here. The winner will be announced August 2nd!

PhotographyCorner 1K Commitment AwardThe August 2011 Corner Newsletter should be “hitting the shelves,” within the next hour or so, and before we send out each newsletter we always make sure to hand out Commitment Awards to those that have reached milestones with regards to their post-count in the past month. Commitment Awards are handed out to those who have shown great community dedication & commitment, and have reached a specific post-count milestone (1k, 2k, 5k and 10k).

Vote for the August 2011 Photograph of the Month

I can’t believe it’s already time to be voting for the August 2011 Photograph of the Month - summer (for those of us in the northern hemisphere, at least) is flying by. The photographs for every Photograph of the Month contest (PotM for short) are nominated throughout the month by the Premiere Members of the site. With a week to go in the month, I wade through all the nominations (special shout-out to chellezfotoz for a bunch of the nominations each month!), and then post up 10-15 of the best ones in a photo gallery. The community has the opportunity to browse through the photos, then cast their vote in the voting thread in the forum. After a week of voting, we tally all the votes and declare a winner!

The contest is being sponsored by our 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 our reputation as The Trusted Original™ to heart).

  1. Head over to the August 2011 Photograph of the Month Photo Gallery and browse through the photographs.
  2. Go to the voting thread to cast your vote.
  3. Continue enjoying the articles, tutorials, product reviews, projects, galleries, forums and contests on PhotographyCorner.
