Contest Rules

*** READ THE RULES. THEY ARE IMPORTANT *** Failure to follow rules will disqualify you!

If the contest is the annual ZeissImages.com contest sponsored by Zeiss, you can submit photos taken with any brand camera or lens. Your camera must be able to accept a Zeiss lens natively. However, the photos do not need to be taken with a Zeiss. Since the winner will get a Zeiss lens, we only want to make sure your camera will accept a Zeiss lens. Most common brands accepting Zeiss lenses include the following:

Zeiss
Leica
Nikon
Sony
Fuji
