The 2010 Photographs of the Year!

Finally, after a month-long entry period, followed by a preliminary voting round that featured almost 200 photos, which was followed by a 1-week FINAL VOTING ROUND, we were very excited to announce the winners of the PhotographyCorner.com 2010 Photograph of the Year Contest yesterday. We announced each of the top 10 finalists individually here on the Corner Blog, but I thought everyone might enjoy browsing through the top 10 winners in order, in once place. So, by your request: here ya go:

The 2010 Photograph of the Year Contest is Here!

The 5th Annual PhotographyCorner.com 2010 Photograph of the Year Contest is finally here. We’ve spent months organizing sponsors and prizes, and today we’re excited to announce it to the community. If you’ve been around the Corner for more than a year, you’re well familiar with our annual contest. If this is your first time here, or you haven’t been here long enough to experience the 2009 Photograph of the Year contest, here’s a brief run-down of how the contest works:

Rien ne va Plus Wins Contest Corner Challenge 78

Contest Corner Challenge #78: Strength in Number Winning Photograph - Riev ne va Plus by Photo-TamaraFrom over 30 entries, there was one that received the majority of the votes (over 25% of them - see the final voting results here): Rien ne va Plus by Photo-Tamara - her first Contest Corner Challenge win!

Contest Corner Challenge #78: Strength in Numbers challenged the community to either literally photograph numbers (house numbers, phone numbers, street numbers, bus numbers, etc), or take a photograph of “a number” of something (a huge pile of bricks, a crowd of people, traffic jam, 10,000 toothpicks, etc). We received a bunch of great photos depicting fruit, coins, cigarettes, people, numbers, animals and a whole bunch of a number of things. You can check out all the entries here in the CCC#78: Strength in Numbers Photo Gallery.

The contest was sponsored by Cameta Camera - a real “brick-and-mortar” full-service camera store and photographic equipment retailer that has been in business on Long Island for over 25 years. Their retail store is located in the heart of the town of Amityville, New York, where they have become a long-standing fixture in the community. This month their featured items are Camera Armor. They have them for virtually every kind of camera & are pretty much giving them away. Since Tamara is not a Premiere Member, she will receive a Digital Concepts TR-62N 62” Photo/Video Tripod with Quick-Release & Case as her prize for winning CCC#78.

If you haven’t already, head on over to the award thread to thank Cameta Camera for their sponsorship, and to congratulate Tamara on her first CCC victory!

There Are Strength in Numbers for CCC#78

Contest Corner Challenge #78: Strength in NumbersAs CCC#77 comes to a close, it’s time to start yet another Contest Corner Challenge. In the 78th edition of the popular photography contest, your challenge is to either literally photograph numbers (house numbers, phone numbers, street numbers, bus numbers, etc), or you can take a photograph of “a number” of something - just make it obvious that the photo is all about the number of “X” in the photo (a huge pile of bricks, a crowd of people, traffic jam, 10,000 toothpicks, etc). We’re expecting a lot of creative entries for this one!

The contest is being sponsored by Cameta Camera - a real “brick-and-mortar” full-service camera store and photographic equipment retailer that has been in business on Long Island for over 25 years. Their retail store is located in the heart of the town of Amityville, New York, where they have become a long-standing fixture in the community. This month their featured items are Camera Armor. They have them for virtually every kind of camera & are pretty much giving them away. If the winner is a Premiere Member, they will receive a Lowepro Fastpack 100 Digital SLR Camera Backpack Case (Red) with Reader + Cleaning Kit + LCD Protectors + Accessory Kit. If the winner is not a Premiere Member, they will receive a Digital Concepts TR-62N 62” Photo/Video Tripod with Quick-Release & Case.

Entries are due in by Sunday, September 26th, 2010, so check the contest thread for all the nitty-gritty details, and make sure you read the Contest Corner Rules & Regulations (I hate having to reject entries because people didn’t read the rules).

Now, get out there and photograph some numbers!

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?

New Contest Announced - CCC#65: Crazy Climate

There’s little doubt that, due to climate change, we’re experiencing some pretty crazy weather. There are not many upsides to global warming, but one of them may be the fact that we, as photographers, can photograph the beautiful effects of the usual and unusual weather patterns. For Contest Corner Challenge #65: Crazy Climate, simply take and submit a photograph depicting “weather” (lightning, tornados, rain, heat, clouds, etc).

Contest Corner Challenge #65: Crazy Climate

Contest Corner Challenge #65: Crazy Climate is sponsored by Think Tank Photo (a group of designers and professional photographers focused on studying how photographers work, and developing inventive new carrying solutions to meet their needs). If you want a new camera bag, Think Tank Photo makes some fantastic bags, and if you use code WS-171 you will receive a free bag (regardless of if you enter the contest or not) with every order over $50 (and part of every order goes to support the Corner as well!!!)!

If the winner is a Premiere Member, they will receive an Urban Disguise 30 camera bag (a $130 value!!). If the winner is not a Premiere Member, they will receive a Digital Holster 10 camera bag (a $45 value). Entries are due in by Sunday, August 2nd, 2009, but make sure to read the contest details and CCC Guidelines before taking and submitting a photo. I’m looking forward to seeing the various creative photographs of weather patterns from all over our planet!

The New Corner Contest Galleries

I was hoping to get this done in time for Christmas when Santa stopped by the Corner, but it ended up being a lot more work than I had expected. I forced myself to get it done before voting started for the 2008 Photograph of the Year contest (one of the reasons it’s taken me an extra day or two to get voting started). What am I talking about, you ask? Why, the new Corner Contest Galleries of course! Now, these galleries aren’t meant to replace our current photo galleries, but they will serve as the new galleries for all of our contests.
