For those of you that have a nice picture taken with a nice Zeiss lens:

Carl Zeiss AG is launching a photo contest on 21 December. Under the motto Your most impressive creations in 2007, the manufacturer of premium lenses is looking for interesting photos from the past year. The use of a lens from Carl Zeiss is obligatory for participation in the contest. Decisive evaluation criteria are personalized composition and creativity. A short, written description of how the photo originated is also requested. The prizes include a Nokia N95 8 GB, Carl Zeiss lenses and Carl Zeiss binoculars.

The promotion lasts until 7 January 2008 and is evaluated in two categories. In the first category, photos can be submitted that have been taken with a Sony digital camera, a Nokia camera phone or a Logitech webcam. In the second category you can enter photos created with an SLR, rangefinder or medium format camera. A jury will assess all submissions and select ten winners for each category.
All winning photos will be published on the Carl Zeiss website.

Customers who wish to take part in the photo contest can find further information and the participation form at www.zeiss.com/photo

Best regards,
Jes.

Only the winner wins one lens. The second one gets a binoculars. All the other winners get crappy prizes Confused

It's almost desperate, I don't think I'll take part.

Zeiss could have been a bit more generous I think... esp. considering that they get publishing rights on the pictures. Evil or Very Mad
Smart commercial operation with nearly all benefits on the Zeiss side Evil or Very Mad

It's a shame. They get unlimited publishing rights on hundreds of best pictures from all over the world, for only the price of one lens!

Shame, shame, shame. I hope that nobody takes part.
Who is Zeiss president now? Ebezener Scrooge? Twisted Evil

Chances are you'll see some of the images used in Zeiss brochures albeit with credits to the photographers.

Maybe.... Confused
