PhotographyCorner.com recently announced the 2006 Photograph of the Year contest, featuring ten, high-profile sponsors with over $14,000 in prizes to be won. The contest is free to enter, with submissions accepted via email. Any photograph taken in 2006 is eligible to win if entered.

It's great to see the photography community step up to the plate for a contest like this. The sponsors have been fantastic donating a great variety of prizes for the winners, and it's always great to give away prizes to deserving photographers. Photographs enrich our lives, and helping photographers to become inspired and get better benefits the community as a whole.
Although PhotographyCorner.com has been running Photograph of the Month challenges for over 2 years, 2006 marks the first year the dominant photography resources site will put on a Photograph of the Year contest. With over $14,000 in prizes available to be won, and with first prize alone valued at over $3,500, the PhotographyCorner.com 2006 Photograph of the Year contest stands to be a big success.

There are several things that set the contest apart from some of the other "Best of 2006" photography contests. Firstly, winners can be from anywhere in the world, not just limited to the US or Canada, making the contest truly a worldwide photography contest. In fact, their most recent Photograph of the Month winner was from Saudi Arabia, with other past winners from various places around the world including the USA, Canada, the UK, Australia, Israel, Africa and Indonesia. In addition, instead of having a select group of judges pick a winner, the entire community will vote on every photograph, broken down in several rounds. With this unique voting process, every eligible submitted photograph is given a chance to win, not just a select few picked out by judges, giving the community complete power over which photographs are awarded "Best of 2006."

In a recent interview, the owner and founder of PhotographyCorner.com, Tim L. Walker, expressed that "The excitement and unique features of this contest display exactly why PhotographyCorner is such a popular and unique home for photographers on the web. Anyone can enter the contest, and anyone can win. I don't decide. A bunch of stuffy judges don't decide. The community decides. They're the photographers - they should pick the winner." He continued by adding that "It's great to see the photography community step up to the plate for a contest like this. The sponsors have been fantastic donating a great variety of prizes for the winners, and it's always great to give away prizes to deserving photographers. Photographs enrich our lives, and helping photographers to become inspired and get better benefits the community as a whole."

The 10 contest sponsors, including ImageAlign.com, Proimageguide.com, iStockphoto.com and Bibblelabs.com, have offered up an amazing collection of cash and prizes that includes software, equipment, cash, clothing, gift certificates, web sites and more.

With thousands of entries expected before the end date of the contest on January 12th, 2007, voting will begin on January 15th, 2007 and will run until the end of the month in several stages, with the winners announced on January 31st, 2007.
