Throughout the month, the Premiere Members nominate photographs, then I narrow down the nominations to the top 10-15. After the nominations have been whittled down, the community has a week to cast their votes, and at the beginning of the month, we declare a winner and post their photograph on the homepage of the site.

You can browse through the nominated photographs for this month in the July 2013 Photograph of the Month Photo Gallery.

Cast Your Vote for the March 2013 Photograph of the Month

The month of February is short enough as it is, but with the delayed PotM voting last month, February seemed even shorter this month.

Around the Corner, the last week of the month (give or take) is always reserved for voting on the upcoming Photograph of the Month contest. The Premiere Members browse through the forums throughout the month and nominate their favourite photographs. As the end of the month approaches, I narrow them down to the top 10-15, and then the whole community gets to vote on them. The favourite gets displayed on the homepage of the Corner for the month, and usually picks up a pretty sweet prize.

Check out the top photographs from the past month here in the March 2013 Photograph of the Month Gallery. Then head over to the voting thread to cast your vote for your favourite. Voting ends at approximately 10:00pm EST on Tuesday, March 5th, 2013 (3:00am GMT on Wednesday, March 6th).

There’s no sponsor for the contest this month, but we do have a prize! If the winner is a Premiere Member, they will receive a KB Covers Photoshop Keyboard (for MacBook, Air & Pro). If the winner is not a Premiere Member, they will receive… nothing, nadda, zip, zilch. Why not become a Premiere Member today?

So what are you waiting for? Go cast your vote now!

Only 5 Days to Vote for the February 2013 PotM

February 2013 Photographs of the MonthNormally we begin voting on the Photograph of the Month during the last week of each month, but with all the hub-bub surrounding the 2012 Photograph of the Year contest, voting for the February 2013 PotM was delayed a couple of weeks.

While voting has just begun (check out the nominated photographs in the February 2013 PotM Photo Gallery), because we’re so delayed, we’re only giving you 5 days (instead of 7) to cast your vote, so you’d better get a move on! Once you’ve browsed through the photos in the photo gallery, drop by the voting thread to cast your vote in the poll.

We usually have sponsors for our contests, but unfortunately no one stepped up for the February contest this year (if you’re interested in sponsoring a contest, check out our advertising page for more info). But never fear, I’ve still got a prize for the winner! If the winner is a Premiere Member, they will receive super-awesome Silver Brass Camera Cufflinks. If the winner is not a Premiere Member, they will receive… nothing, nadda, zip, zilch. Why not become a Premiere Member today?
