Update to the Photograph of the Month Contests

Over the past 9+ years, we've always voted on the Photograph of the Month during the last week of the month, and the winner was displayed on the homepage of the site for the following month. For example, we voted the last week of September, for the October Photograph of the Month.

When we first launched the contest, the only prize was that the photograph was displayed on the homepage, so naming the Photograph of the Month based on the month the winning photograph donned the homepage made sense.

For many years now, however, the Photograph of the Month contests have had numerous other prizes (tens of thousands of dollars in prizes, in fact)... and many people have commented/complained that the naming system didn't really make sense. After years of fighting it, I've decided it's time to make a change!

Starting this month, we will vote during the first week of the month, for the best image posted on the Corner from the previous month (ie. we'll vote during the first week of February for the January Photograph of the Month - based on the images that were posted in January). I think, ultimately, this makes a lot more sense.

So that being said, there's no Photograph of the Month contest this month, but voting for the January 2014 Photograph of the Month contest will begin on February 1st or 2nd.

To all those who have been asking for this change: you're welcome. To those that don't like the new change, or have questions, feel free to ask them below!

Re: Update to the Photograph of the Month Contests

I never complained about it, but if guess the change makes a lot of sense. Go, Tiim. 😉 👍
