2014 ZeissImages Contest

By Jt

It’s that time of the year again. The 2014 ZeissImages.com contest has officially begun.

Just like the previous contests we have hosted, A big thanks to Richard Schleuning of Carl Zeiss, Camera Lens Division for providing the winning prize once again. This time the winner can choose one lens from the following list.

Distagon 2/28 ZE or ZF.2

Distagon 2/35 ZE or ZF.2

Planar 1.4/50 ZE or ZF.2

Planar 1.4/85 ZE or ZF.2

Makro-Planar 2/50 ZE or ZF.2

Touit 2.8/12 E or X

Touit 1.8/32 E or X

Touit 2.8/50M E or X

Loxia 2/50 E

Loxia 2/35 E

This year’s theme will be “In the Open”. This could be any subject photographed outdoors where the surroundings blend well with the main subject and contribute to the overall image. For example, a nice landscape where the overall scene is the main subject, a cow grazing on a field where the surroundings make the cow seem interesting rather than boring, a portrait where bokeh from the surroundings enhance the subject, a fire fighter surrounded by a blazing building. Being captivated by the image is what we want.

Try and avoid portraits where you are only drawn to the main subject and ignore the rest of the frame. Avoid macro work and the proverbial cornucopias. Avoid heavy post processing that makes a photo look unnatural.

I think you get the picture now :) The objective is to maximize use of the entire frame and captivate the viewer.

You are allowed three entries under the category 2014 – Contest. This time, the contest is open to Zeiss users and non- Zeiss users as well. This will give all photographers a chance to own a coveted Zeiss lens. The only catch is that whatever camera you use must accept a Zeiss lens.

The contest will close on Dec 31, 2014 23:59:59 GMT and the judges will include staff members of Popflash Photo and ZeissImages.com

Good luck everyone

view the photo, click on edit icon then click on replace photo. or simply move them to a different category and upload new ones to the contest category.

How do I switch one of my contest photos? I made an error submitting 2 similar photos.
Thanks

no. any date is ok. if you have a picture of aliens at Roswell back in 1947, that would be good to. actually, you would most likely win :)

Hi,

This 2014 photo contest will only accept photos taken in 2014?

I found out HOW to change the 'category' in the Edit List thing so I have changed my 'Best' photo back from 'General' to the '2014 Competition' .

I see two pictures in the contest with your name. did you have more? A max of 3 are allowed. If you have 3 in there and you want to add more, you have to change the 3 in the contest category to a different category. If you select to add a 4th one in to the contest category and there are already 3, it will put the 4th into general category.

What happened to my photo ? I entered it in 2014 Contest section then after I had added the details in the Edit I pressed 'Submit' and then I saw it had been changed to 'General' category -- how can I get my Favourite Photo BACK to the 2104 Contest Category ?
