Maybe next year

This is a cool contest that I may enter next year. It’s the [tag]2006 Photograph of the Year Contest[/tag] put on at [tag]PhotographyCorner[/tag].com. The contest is sponsored by folks like Lensbabies (a manufacturer and marketer of selective focus camera lenses and the new flexible lens!!!) and iStockPhoto (a fine collection of member-generated royalty-free images).

The prizes are incredible, totaling over $14,000, with 10 winners. The packages are very sweet, even at the “honorably mention” level, and include camera cases, lenses, photo processing and more. New gear equals a happy shutterbug, right?

The rules are short and simple and not at all onerous. The most difficult one is to be a member of the forum with 5 posts. You do have to submit your image with all the EXIF intact, but that’s a given in a digital photo contest.

I’d really like to enter this contest, and had I not been so lazy with my picture taking over the last years, I would probably do so. I just don’t think I did anything worthy of a prize in 2006. I do already have at least one image from this year that I’ll consider entering for next year, though. And I’ll be spending some time checking this site out thoroughly.
