1) 2011 Corner Calendar ON SALE NOW!

We've talked about it before, so I don't know how you could have missed it. But just in case, here's the info again: The 2011 Corner Calendar is ON SALE NOW! It's been generously printed by Mpix.com on sturdy pearl paper, and features 2 amazing photographs for each month in 2011. The photographs include past PotY, PotM, CCC and PP winners (Photograph of the Year, Photograph of the Month, Contest Corner Challenge and Premiere Project for those that aren't familiar with all our crazy acronyms). We sent out a survey to gauge interest in putting together a calendar, and a bunch of you indicated you wanted one, but so far, just over a quarter have actually taken the plunge. We've got them printed and ordered, so we need you to place your order NOW! Get all the details, then place your order here: http://goo.gl/U2hx6 Remember, all proceeds from the calendar sales go directly to supporting the Corner. We'll start mailing out the orders later this week, so if you want them before Christmas (and before 2011 starts), you'll need to place your order soon (and don't forget that worldwide shipping is included). What are you waiting for??! Order your 2011 PhotographyCorner Calendar TODAY: http://goo.gl/U2hx6


2) Sponsor: Tamron SP 70-300mm Di VC USD ó Best-in-Class Tele Zoom

In the pursuit to achieve the most outstanding image resolution in the 70-300mm class, Tamron's 60th Anniversary lens - the SP 70-300mm Di VC USD (Model A005) - uses an advanced optical design that features LD (Low Dispersion) and XLD (Extra Low Dispersion) lens elements that prevent chromatic aberration. As a result, the SP 70-300mm Di VC USD boasts sharper contrast and greater descriptive performance than all others in its class. This is the first Tamron lens to sport USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive), Tamronís very own ultrasonic auto-focus drive mechanism. This USD mechanism delivers fast focusing, making it a perfect telephoto zoom choice for photographing sports and other fast-moving subjects. The lens also boasts Tamronís proprietary VC (Vibration Compensation) image stabilization to assist in hand-held photography, not only at long focal length ranges where blurring is common, but also under low-lit conditions, dramatically enhancing photographic freedom. This combination of best in class image resolution, Ultrasonic Silent Drive and Vibration Compensation is a new achievement of Tamron technology, culminating in the production of a premium 70-300mm telephoto zoom lens. Winner of EISA Best Zoom Lens 2010-2011. Available for full-frame and APS-C sensor cameras in Canon, Nikon and Sony mounts (the latter without VC). Winner of several international awards including the prestigious EISA Award for Best Zoom 2010-2011. $50 rebate thru 12/31/10. Check it out here: http://goo.gl/TM3EB

7) It's Coming...

If you've been a member of the Corner for a year or more, you already know what happens sometime in early December. In a little over a week from today, we'll be announcing the FIFTH ANNUAL PHOTOGRAPHYCORNER.COM PHOTOGRAPH OF THE YEAR CONTEST!!! Our past 4 contests have featured over $60,000 in prizes, have received thousands of entries, tens of thousands of votes, and hundreds of thousands of visitors. It's time to start looking through the photos you've taken in 2010, and get ready to submit your best one (or if you're a Premiere Member, you'll get to submit TWO!). Look for details of the contest to be announced on our blog (http://www.photographycorner.com/blog), on Twitter (http://twitter.com/thecorner), and on our Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/photographycorner). Are you excited?! Are you ready??! Some great sponsors have already stepped up with some sweet prizes... If you know of a company that would be a great sponsor for the contest, let them (and us!) know - we've got a week to get them set up. And you have a week until you'll find out all the details of the 5th Annual PhotographyCorner.com Photograph of the Year contest! It's coming...



See you around the Corner,
