1) PotY Wrap-Up

Unless your connection to the internet has been down for the past month or two, you're well aware of the big annual contest that's been going on around the Corner - the 2011 Photograph of the Year. We announced the winners last week, and are doing the final wraps on the contest this week. We received more entries than ever before (over 500), and the most ever made it through for voting (226). A bunch of new members have joined the Corner (welcome!), and 10 winners (listed below) will be receiving $10,000 in prizes from our 9 corporate sponsors. Sure, it's a lot of work putting together and hosting a contest like this, but when you browse through the amazing collection of photographs, it easily makes it all worth while. If you have a chance, browse through the winning photographs and congratulate the photographers - enjoy the fine art our community creates, and celebrate it with us. Another successful PotY!

6) Premiere Project Photograph of the Year

Premiere Projects, hosted in the Premiere Corner every couple of weeks, are group photography projects where Premiere Members challenge themselves to grow as photographers by participating in themed "assignments." Each projects outlines a topic for the members to photograph. The photos are then submitted for discussion/critiquing/reactions. At the end of the project period, a vote is held to determine which photo best represents the theme while maintaining high photographic quality. If you follow along closely in the forums, you’ve probably seem some of the winner announcements in the Conversation Corner.

Just when you thought the fun was over, later today/tomorrow will begin the Premiere Project Photograph of the Year (a vote on the best Premiere Project winning photographs from 2011). Originally the vote was only going to be among Premiere Members in the Premiere Corner, but they wanted to open voting up to the community at large in attempts to encourage non Premiere Members to support the Corner and become Premiere Members themselves. To that end, starting with the announcement of the contest, Lifetime Premiere Memberships will again be on sale for HALF PRICE for the duration of the contest. Keep your eyes on the Photograph of the Year forum ( http://www.photographycorner.com/for...splay.php?f=72 ) for PPPotY voting, and visit http://www.photographycorner.com/premiere-membership for more information on the benefits of Premiere Membership. Looking forward to seeing more of you in the Premiere Corner soon!



See you around the Corner,
