The 2013 Contest is Open
The 2013 ZeissImages.com photo contest is officially open. Once again, this year the prize is being provided by Carl Zeiss Camera Lens Division thanks to Richard Schleuning, National Sales Manager. This contest would not be possible without support from Richard and Carl Zeiss Camera Lens Division.
This years theme will be "Ordinary Life". A semi documentary theme where the objective is to capture an ordinary moment in someone's day that becomes an extraordinary photo for everyone to view. This could be a scene from someone struggling to get by day to day or the thrill of a child blowing out a candle on a birthday cake. The photo just needs to portray real events in life that when viewed as a photograph are memorable.
Like before, any submitted entry must be photographed with a Zeiss lens. It does not matter what kind of Zeiss lens was used as long as it was a Zeiss. This means smart phones with built in Zeiss lenses are acceptable as are point and shoot cameras, dslr's, rangefinder cameras, reflex cameras etc ..
All participants may submit up to 3 photographs. You are allowed to change your submitted photos while the contest is open to submissions. Once the contest closes, no more changes or entries will be allowed. [u]To submit your photos, you must be a registered member of Zeissimages.com and upload your photos into the category "2013 Contest".[/u If you already have a photo in the gallery and you wish to use it in the contest, simply change that photos category to reflect the contest category.
