1) New Year Excitement

Wow... 2007. I swear it was the turning of the millennium just the other day. For some reason, this year it seems to be harder to write or type 2007 instead of 2006. Maybe it's because the 7 is supposed to be typed by my right hand instead of my left... I dunno. I'll get used to it. Anyways, the Corner had a great year in 2006, and we're looking to continue that growth and success in 2007. The new Corner Blog now up and running, and, of course, the Corner Photo Galleries, while still in BETA (still got a couple more bugs to work out) is already a HUGE success with almost 5,000 photos uploaded in the galleries. What's in store for 2007? Well, we'll be mainly focusing on the Resource Center, adding more articles, tutorials and camera/product reviews. Of course, we'll be continuing with our contests as well... and there are some AMAZING prizes to be won in the next couple of months (and don't even get me started on the $14k in prizes that will be won in the PotY contest going on right now!). What more could you ask for? Well... if you have an idea what you want to see around the Corner, shoot me off an email and let me know... I love new ideas/suggestions (and I love getting real email... much better than SPAM!).


2) Sponsor: ProPics Express

ProPics Express has been one of the leading sponsors of the Corner throughout the Fall and Winter. I'm sure you have already seen their contest sponsorships along with their banners floating around the site, too. ProPics Express has already given out over $2,000 in gift certificates and cash to Photograph of the Month and Contest Corner Challenges winners, with THOUSANDS more to go over the next couple of contests (including the current Photograph of the Year contest). Ok, so they sound like a pretty cool company, and they're obviously photography-related, but what exactly does ProPics Express do? Well, they're a full-service, online, digital photo lab that services both the professional photographer, and the advanced photo enthusiast (and even beginner photographers!). All of their photographic products are individually color-corrected, and then printed on Kodak professional paper (one of the few online labs in the world that prints all output on pro papers). Their print sizes range from small wallet-sized prints to 20x30 prints. In addition, they have their own frame division (HardWood Frames, Inc), so you can get the perfect frame from them as well. Now, if that weren't enough, they also offer items such as calendars, greeting cards and photobooks. With competitive pricing, and with most items shipping the SAME DAY the order is received, there's no doubt that ProPics Express is the online photo finishing of choice for the photo enthusiast.

3) PotY Update

When we announced the PhotographyCorner.com 2006 Photograph of the Year contest, we knew it was going to be big. With $14,000 in prizes from 10 amazing sponsors, how could it not? And now, we've extended the entry deadline from January 12th to January 18th (so yes, you've still got a couple more days to get your entries in!!). Voting will start on January 19th, and the winner will be announced at the end of the month (more on the voting process below). In case you've been on holidays for the past month or something, here are some important links you'll need to read to find out more info on the contest:

4) The Corner Blog

One of the neat additions to the Corner that may have been overshadowed by the announcement of the PotY contest has been The Corner Blog ( http://www.photographycorner.com/blog ). I'm frequently told how great the community at the Corner is - a live, active, friendly, knowledgeable forum - but one thing we've lacked is photography news. People come to the Corner for the community, but still visit other sites (GASP!) to get camera reviews, new camera rumors, and industry news. No More! Over the next couple of months we'll be beefing up our product reviews section, and the Corner Blog will be your one-stop-shop for photography industry news. I've subscribed myself to over 100 RSS and email feeds from all the big, medium and small companies in the photography industry, and (once I get caught up from my vacation and PotY stuff), The Corner Blog will strive to be a wealth of industry scoops and knowledge. I'm not going to going crazy and start posting 10-15 things/day like some photography blogs do, but you will get all the important photography news at The Corner Blog (plus essential Corner News) in a couple posts/day. If you use an RSS Reader, you can subscribe to The Corner Blog at this address: feed://feeds.feedburner.com/photographycornerblog If you have any questions or comments on the Blog, drop me an email and let me know!


5) The PotY Voting Process

For all the Corner regulars, the voting process will be fairly familiar, with a little twist. Because we'll obviously have more than 25 entries (we're close to 200 entries so far, I think), we will do voting in 2 rounds, where the winners from the first round will go on to the 2nd round to battle it out for the top 10 spots. The number of groups in the first round will depend on the number of entries. The first voting round will run from January 19th to January 24th, and the 2nd voting round will run from January 25th to 30th, with the winner being announced on January 31st. There will be several voting reminder emails sent out during the remainder of the contest, so don't be alarmed that you're getting more email from the Corner than normal. On average, expect to receive 3-4 emails from me a month... so the 7-8 you receive from me this month are abnormal. Some controversy has come up regarding whether or not the entries will be anonymous or not. While some photos may be recognizable, I will not post up the author's name or username with each entry. They will be revealed after voting is complete, but usernames will not be included with the entries... I believe this will make it "more fair" for newer and less-active users. You must have 5 posts on the forum to vote (to help combat cheating), and the # of votes will be hidden until after voting is completed. Anything else not covered here will be covered in the voting threads. If you have any questions, please post them in the PotY discussion forum: http://www.photographycorner.com/for...splay.php?f=72


6) "Noteworthy Notables"

Normally I post great threads and new resources in this section, however, as I've been away for most of the past month, I'm a little out of the loop myself. Instead, I'll post some important links for the PotY, along with some good, general "Corner Stuff," both for all the new members, as well as some of the older members who may just need a little brushing up on "the Corner".

7) What To Do with These Newsletters?

To all the new members that have joined the Corner since the last newsletter (almost 400!), welcome to the Corner, and to your first copy of the Corner Newsletter. You can find archived copies on the forum here: http://www.photographycorner.com/for...splay.php?f=54 I enjoy writing them, do you enjoy reading them? With the addition of The Corner Blog, do we still need them? Back in 2006 (man, that still sounds weird), we were thinking of doing the newsletter in PDF format instead of text. Is that something you still want? It would be more of a magazine-style newsletter, with photos, articles, etc. The other option would be to do the newsletters in HTML format, which would mean similar content to what we have now, but it would instead look more like a webpage in your email. Cast your vote and give us your feedback and hopefully in the next issue or two, we can make whatever the community votes for a reality: http://www.photographycorner.com/for...ad.php?t=52140



See you around the Corner,
