2012 Photograph of the Year Voting Guidelines

Due to the number of entries for the 2012 Photograph of the Year contest, we break the voting down into 2 rounds. The first round, which runs from January 9th, 2013 to January 16th, 2013, has 5 Groups. There are 25 photos in each group. The top five photographs in each Group (the five photographs that receive the most votes) will be placed into the final round where they will be voted on to decide the 10 prize winners. In the event of a tie, both photographs will move to the final round.

The final voting round will run from January 17th to January 24th, with the winners announced on January 25th.

Make sure you vote in each group during round 1 of the voting process so that all photos get a fair chance. If you have any questions specifically about the voting process, please ask them here (If you have any other questions about the 2012 Photograph of the Year contest, please ask them in the designated discussion thread).

Voting will be secret (ie. no one will know who you voted for, and the results of the vote will not be displayed until after the voting period has ended), and you must have 5 posts on the forum (including gallery comments) in order for your vote to count. Also, all photographs are anonymous, so please do not identify if you are the photographer of a specific photograph, or if you know which photographer took a certain photograph.

A New Change This Year: You will be able to vote for as many photographs as you'd like in each group (but you'll only be allowed to vote once). You can, of course, vote for your own photograph if you wish.


Sponsors: We have seventeen (17!) sponsors for this contest, who are supplying the majority of the prizes. Make sure you check out each of the sponsors listed below. Without their support, this contest (or PhotographyCorner) would not exist.



Lead Sponsor: SilverFast.com

Contest Sponsors: Canvas4Life.com, CreativeMotionDesign.com, Akvis.com, AtechFlash.com, ChromaLuxe.com, PhotoFlashDrive.com, SnapKnot.com, DigitalFilmTools.com, FullColor.com, SmugMug.com, ThinkTankPhoto.com, Yervant.com, Sunbounce.com, CottonCarrier.com, TopazLabs.com & Phlearn.com

Re: 2012 Photograph of the Year Voting Guidelines

I'm a little confused by the new change of being allowed to vote for as many photos as you want.

So, essentially, someone could vote for all 25 photos of a group?

Yup. Though presumably, most will only vote for their favorite 2 or 3 or 10...

Re: 2012 Photograph of the Year Voting Guidelines

Basically, it helps eliminate the "how can I vote for just one of these amazing photographs" and allows people to vote for the favorites instead of just the best "one" in the group...

Re: 2012 Photograph of the Year Voting Guidelines

Hi there,

I have lots of friends and family that would like to know if there is a way for them to vote. Can they do that only if they are registered and active in the forum?
Thanks!

Can't wait to see the photos!

The groups haven't been posted yet. Tim is just providing us with the guidelines so we are prepared when the groups are posted.

Yes, the only way they can vote is if they're members of the forum, and their vote only counts if they have at least 5 posts.
