1) The 2011 Corner Fund Raiser

Unfortunately the 2011 Corner Fund Raiser is coming to a close. Our goal was to raise $3,500 to cover the costs of our new server (which is already up and running), and a mobile app. After almost 4 months, we've raised enough to cover the increased server costs for about 10 months, but no money raised towards the mobile app. So far we've raised $1,550, with almost $2k remaining to cover the remaining costs. It's not all doom and gloom, though - in a couple of weeks, we'll start awarding some of the prizes! Look for updates on the Corner Blog. We're now looking for a corporate sponsor for the mobile app, so if you know anyone that may be interested, let me know!

A HUGE thanks to those that have made donations already. Check out the list (and make a donation of your own!) here: http://www.photographycorner.com/201...er-fund-raiser

7) New Additions to the Corner Resource Center

While the forums and galleries may be the most popular section for the MEMBERS of the Corner, and the SmugMug Corner & Corner Member Close Up interviews are the most popular sections for the VISITORS to the site, the section that actually has the most visits every month is the Corner Resource Center ( http://www.photographycorner.com/resources ). With member-written articles, tutorials and product reviews, it's a fantastic group of resources for the beginning, amateur and professional photographer alike. But we need people like you to contribue to the collection (yes even you, $username!). If you're a professional or amateur photographer, think about some of your favorite gear or books, and write us up a quick review! Even if you're a beginning photographer, your view on equipment and books would be fantastic! For details on how to write and submit your article, tutorial or product review, check out this thread: http://www.photographycorner.com/for...ement.php?f=46 We'll even give you a medal for your profile for each resource that you write. Think of it like your first back-to-school assignment of the year.



See you around the Corner,
