We are pleased to announce the annual Zeissimages.com photography contest in collaboration with our sponsor Zeiss, photography division.
As in previous years, our contests begin in the fall and run through December so that the winner can enjoy their prize during the holiday seasons.
The contest is open to members of Zeissimages.com starting on Oct 4th 2023. If you are not currently a member, you can join for free.
This year there will be no specific theme in general. However, you could say we are looking for that "Wow!" factor. Whether it be landscape, portrait, street or studio. We are looking for that image that keeps you coming back to view over and over.
The winner may have their choice of the one lens from the following list which will be provided and shipped directly from our sponsor Zeiss.
As you may or may not recall, Voigtlanderimages.com was originally dedicated to host images taken with Voigtlander / Cosina lenses. There were quite a few members sharing their work on the site. The one day it was removed by mistake along with its backup. Ever since it has been non existent. However, just recently I managed to find some old backups and together with some Sherlock Holmes work, I put together what I think we had before.
If you come across any issues let me know so I can address them.
