Kodak Picture of the Day Contest Recap

If you remember way back to late October, 2007, we held a contest in partnership with Kodak. The winners (one from North America and one from “the rest of the world,”) were to have one of their photographs displayed on the Kodak Electronic Display in Times Square for one day. Well, back in February, it finally happened. Karen and sayambhu had their one day of fame in Times Square, and Karen took a trip out to New York to experience first hand! In addition, Karen received a Kodak EasyShare 5300 All-in-One Printer. Below, we have some photos she took on the trip, some of her thoughts on the trip and the contest, as well as a mini-review to go along with the review I did earlier.

Follow the Path to Contest Corner Challenge #48

It seems like it was just yesterday that I announced CCC #47, but here we are, 3 weeks later, and we’re onto our next Contest Corner Challenge (just 2 away from the half-century mark!). CCC#48: The Path is all about leading lines. Leading lines are lines within an image that leads the eye to another point in the image, or occasionally, out of the image. For this challenge, you need to use a path (road, walkway, bridge, etc) as a leading line. The path should comprise most of the photograph. You can read all the details about the contest here.

The contest is sponsored by our friends at SmugMug.com. If the winner is not a Premiere Member, they will receive a SmugMug Power Account (1 year free subscription) - a $59.95 value! If the winner is a Premiere Member, they will receive a SmugMug Pro Account (1 year free subscription) - a $149.95 value!! In addition, the winner will also receive 5 of the new PhotographyCorner.com Pens!

Entries are due by 11:59pm GMT, Monday, April 7th, 2008. So go find your path, photograph it, and get your entries in!

Can You Smell Contest Corner Challenge #44?

Just when you thought the Contest Corner Challenges couldn’t get any more difficult, CCC#44: Photolfaction comes along. No, there isn’t a spelling mistake in the title of this Contest Corner Challenge - it’s a word I made up. Olfaction is basically is your sense of smell. For this challenge, you need to photograph something that looks so good (or bad!) that you can smell it. Think perfume, fresh coffee grounds, cinnamon, rotten egg, etc.

Contest Corner Challenge #43 Announced

You ever notice that some objects kind of look like letters? Like the brim of a mug looks like an “O” or the top of that roof makes the letter “A”, or even a stick in the shape of the letter “Y.” Contest Corner Challenge #43: Holiday Alphabetography challenges you to photograph these objects that look like letters, and put them together to create a holiday word (like peace, joy, christmas, jesus, lights, wreath, hanukkah, festivus, etc).

PhotographyCorner/Kodak Contest Reminder

I know what you’re thinking: “Wow, Tim is going blog crazy today!! Isn’t this like the 4th post already today?” I guess. It’s a good thing, though - it means I’m getting caught up again. Which, if you think about it, is pretty good considering the big contest that is coming up. But down to the meat and potatoes of this post - the Kodak Contest. You have less than 3 days to get your entries in.
