Announces Contest Corner Challenge #61: Lights, Camera, Action!

Contest Corner Challenge #61: Lights, Camera, Action! is the Latest Contest Challenge at, which asks photographers to capture a photograph about “video.”

Barrie, Ontario, Canada, March 13, 2009 --( Photography Corner ( ) has announced a new Contest Corner Challenge open to all members of the popular photography community. The latest challenge asks photographers to capture “video” in one photograph. There are a lot of similarities between photography and videography, but one glaring difference is that in photography, we only get one frame to tell a story; yet in videography, it takes thousands or hundreds of thousands of frames to tell a story. When someone looks at the photographs entered for this contest, they should see a photograph, and think “video.” It could be as simple as photographing a video camera, or a movie set, but photographers are welcome to be as creative as they’d like for this contest.

A challenge winner will be chosen after a five-day voting period by members when the contest ends on March 29th, 2009. The site began offering Contest Corner Challenges in July 2004, and new challenges are issued approximately twelve times per year. The prize for the current challenge is Kodak Zi6 HD Pocket Video Camera provided by Kodak.

Photographers who join have the ability to enter one photograph for each of the Contest Corner Challenges. In an effort to make the contests fair for all members, only photographs taken during the time of the contest can be entered, and only minor post-production photo manipulation can be used.

Contest Corner Challenges at are issued to site members in the community’s forum. Only Premiere Members of Photography Corner (requires a yearly or lifetime subscription) are eligible to win some of the prizes, but all members of the site are always invited to submit photographs to the contest and to participate in the five-day voting window to vote on contest winners and discuss submissions after they have all been received.
