More Prizes for the 2011 Corner Fund Raiser

Last week we announced the 2011 Corner Fund Raiser with a goal to raise $3,500 towards a new server for the site, as well as for the development of a mobile app (iPhone & Android) for the Corner forums. So far we’ve had 18 people step up and raise $600 (a little over 17% of the way there). Check out the list of people that have donated so far here. That’s a great start, but we still have quite a ways to go ($2,900). Have you donated yet? What’s holding you back?

As an added incentive, we’ve added some new prizes to the mix from some of our generous sponsors. What? Prizes you say? Check out the details:
The Prizes
Once the goal of $3,500 (well, $3,603, but I’ve got us started with the first $103) has been reached, we’ll put all the entries into a randomizer and draw for the prizes:

That’s over $1,000 in prizes up for grabs!!! If you’re an active member of the site, we’d really appreciate it if you donated a little bit towards this fund raiser. There are over 25 prizes up for grabs… so it’s not only a fund raiser, it’s a raffle! Get your donation in and let’s get a new server, a mobile app, and give away some prizes!!

As If You Didn't Know Already...

Canadian StampOk. I’ll admit it. The last of the prizes for the 2007 Photograph of the Year contest just went out last week. It’s not because I’m lazy or cheap or anything, though. I wanted to wait to make sure all the other prizes had gone out before I send the stuff that I had out. I learned my lesson from last year. I sent a bunch of stuff out right after the contest, only to have a couple of advertisers send me more stuff to send out. And when the contests are 100% international (which brings me to the point of this post), it can get pretty expensive. Sending a 12”×12”×12” (that’s 30cm x 30cm x 30cm) package to somewhere in Canada or the US from here (I’m in Barrie, Ontario, Canada) costs $20ish bucks. Sending one to Ireland or Australia or Portugal or something, though, can put me back as high as $120 for the same package. Yikes! No wonder a lot of the sponsors don’t want to ship overseas (and no wonder so many other photography contests, or contests in general, limit their contests to the US or the US and Canada).
