Contest Corner Challenge #91 Announced

We just announced the winner of Contest Corner Challenge #90: Show Me the Money!, so that means it’s time to get another Contest Corner Challenge underway. The entries for CCC#91: The Color and the Shape (yes the title was borrowed from the Foo Fighers) should predominantly feature a single-colored geometric shape. I know that sounds a little boring, but you’ll be surprised how challenging this one may turn out to be. Some ideas to get you started: children’s block toys, boxes, inside of a cup, sail of a boat, a wall, table top, etc.

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 Acme Made (best known for incorporating innovative textiles and materials with contemporary styling to produce attractive bags, cases and sleeves for laptops, eReaders, smart phones, and digital cameras). If the winner is a Premiere Member, they will receive an Acme Made Laptop Sleeve or an Acme Made Kindle Hardback Folio case. If the winner is not a Premiere Member, they will receive a Lifetime, Level I Premiere Membership.

Entries are due in by Wednesday, September 28th, and the voting will begin on September 29th. If you have any questions about the contest, head on over to the contest thread in the forums and ask away. Oh, and make sure to read through the Contest Corner Rules & Regulations so that your photograph doesn’t get rejected. Now get out there and photograph me some colorful shapes!

Contest Corner Challenge #87: Going Green Announced

Contest Corner Challenge #87: Going GreenA couple of days ago we announced the latest Contest Corner Challenge here at PhotographyCorner: CCC#87: Going Green. “Going Green” is a common phrase that it used when referring to doing something that is “good for the environment.” Whether you take a photograph of recylcing, solar panals, or of people planting a tree, as long as it fits the theme of “going green,” you have yourself an entry. It wouldn’t hurt if there’s a lot of the color green in your photo, either.

The contest is sponsored by out 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). If the winner is a Premiere Member, they will receive a Lowepro Terraclime 100 camera bag (green, of course). If the winner is not a Premiere Member, they will receive a Lowepro Cirrus 100 camera bag.

Entries are due in by Monday, June 13th, 2011, so you’ve got just under two weeks to go out and take a great “going green” shot. Get all the entry details here in the contest thread (and don’t forget to read the submission guidelines before entering a photograph!).

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!
