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!

Now, get out there and photograph some numbers!
