In preparation for PDN and PDNOnline’s Studio issue (February), we want to find to find out: What feature of your workspace, office or studio do you like best? Is there something in it that makes it attractive, convenient, versatile, family friendly, cozy or in some other way appealing?
We’ll be posting readers’ photos and descriptions of their studios or workspaces from now until the week of February 1, when we’ll ask readers to vote on the best submissions. The photographer whose workspace feature wins the most votes will be featured on our Web site—and receive a $50 gift certificate from a photo retailer.
If you’d like us to consider your workspace’s best feature, please submit 1 to 3 jpeg images to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Include a short description (up to 100 words) of your workspace and why you like its best feature. Be sure to tell us the kind of work you do there, and who else uses the space (including kids, pets, partners, etc). Be sure to put “Best Thing in My Workspace” in the subject line of your email.
Please note that you don’t have to have a spectacular studio to win over PDN’s readers. When her San Francisco office-slash-apartment was the top vote getter in our Cramped But Cool Studio contest, photographer Nicole Hill Gerulat noted, “I think the space may have appealed to PDN readers because it’s just my living room—proving that great shots can be taken anywhere and that a studio isn’t necessary (until the client calls).”
