Photo Corner

New Photo Column Icon Entries

This issue of Photo Corner has been in production for some time now, mainly because it seems that some people don’t recognize their own talents when it comes to taking awesome photos and are obviously too modest to send them to me… but anyway the idea of this competition is to choose new icons to represent each of GMA’s columns.  The chosen photos will be edited print-block style, so they will look something like this:


Original Nom Nom Tabemono example


Edited example

If this is the first time you’ve heard about this project and you’d like to send in your photos to me on Facebook, I will update the entry list if there is enough interest.  But for now, take a look at the rundown of the columns again followed by their photo entries.  (It’s pretty much a Harrison, Sam and Ellen party!)

  • Aomori Spotlight (JET interviews)
  • A Novel Idea (book reviews)
  • Japantics (misadventures in Japan)
