Tamron USA announces “My Travel Exhibit” photo contest offered exclusively to Tamron USA lens users. Entrants will create a 3D virtual exhibit showcasing 8-14 of their best images in a travel theme. Professional photographer Ian Plant will judge the contest and choose the winning exhibit based on overall image quality and originality of the collection. The winning exhibit will be featured on the Tamron USA website and Tamron eNewsletter. The winner will also receive his/her choice of one of five Tamron lenses: 18-270mm Di II VC PZD 15X all-in-one zoom lens (model B008); SP 17-50mm F/2.8 Di II VC (model B005); SP 70-300mm Di VC USD (modelA005); SP 60mm F/2.0 Di II 1:1 Macro (model G005); or 18-200mm Di III VC for Sony E-Mount (model B011). The contest officially launches on June 1, 2012. Entrants without a computer or Internet access may send in entries bymail. The deadline for submissions is September 30, 2012; complete contest rules are available at http://tamron.myphotoexhibits.com/contest.

Unlike traditional static online galleries, Tamron's SoHo-styled MyPhotoExhibits (MPE) interface, available at http://myphotoexhibits.com, allows users to create customizable gallery exhibits with a vibrant interactive experience. Photographers simply set up a user avatar and bio, upload theirfavorite high-resolution images and create their personalized on-line exhibit space. After organizing the exhibit and captioning the photographs, users can put finishing design touches on their exhibit. By choosing wall and floor textures and colors, frames, furniture, and lighting, photographers are invited to extend their creativity and show their work in complimentary settings. It’s easy to go back into the MPE interface at any time to add more photos, tweak presentation specs, or create an unlimited number of new exhibits that feature travel pictorials, special events, projects, and more.

Spreading the word about these custom exhibits is another way in which MyPhotoExhibits stands out from other online galleries. Once an exhibit is ready to “open” it’s easy to share it with friends. Users simply send invitations from the website or the iPhone & iPad app to Facebook or other social media platforms or by email. Visitors can sign the photographer's guestbook, choose favorite exhibits and follow exhibiting photographers.

Companion iPhone & iPad App for On-The-Go Viewing and Sharing
An app for iPhone & iPad for photography enthusiasts on-the-go will further enhance MyPhotoExhibits convenience and user-friendliness. The complimentary app, available in the iTunes app store at http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tamron-mpe/id420404201?mt=8 offers easy mobile access to MyPhotoExhibits. Through their iPhone or iPad, users can browse through all available MPE exhibits, view their own exhibits, check out other photographers and share exhibits by sending out invites to friends.

I appreciate a lot this great and useful article. Photography and Psychic Readings are my favourite hobbies since I was a teenager. My parents encouraged me to make a career in photography and I am very happy about that as I am traveling a lot and I have the opportunity to take the most amazing photos. Recently I was hired to one of the most important magazines from United States and I am very satisfied of my job.

The best photo travel photo

The best photo travel photo exhibit launch party I attended was in London. I was there on vacation, with no interest to be on a tight schedule, just wandering the streets and enjoying daily beauty. Suddenly I came across this poster announcing the exhibit and I visited it. It was amazing work.
