Congratulations to the winner from Czech Republic who has won $984.00. It's a super close-up portrait of a beautiful, red haired, freckly girl - or soon to be 'young lady'. Lighting is very important for good portrait shots. In this photo keeping direct sun light off the face, but using it to highlight the hair works well.
Michael Jolliffe from Australia has won $7,220.00 and a Leica M MONOCHROM body worth $8000.00. That's a very big prize! Looking at Michael's website michaeljolliffe.com I can see that he specialises in black and white film photography. Michael has already won a child photo contest, showing that he is no one-hit wonder, and without doubt a very talented photographer. We are sure that Michael will put the Leica Monochrom to good use.
We'd like to congratulate all of the winners and thank everyone who entered one of the 722 entries. We'd also like to thank the judges Thorsten Overgaard and Birgit Krippner for looking through all of the entries and choosing 30 winning photos.
Congratulations to Frédéric Perrin from France ( blustemy.com ) who has won the landscape photo contest with this amazing photo taken on the Isle of Skye. Frédéric proves that you don't need to wait for the sun to come out to get a good shot. It's a well composed shot full of interest with the clear water and moody clouds hanging over the mountains. Frédéric has won $958.00.
Henrik Spranz a german photographer living in Austria has won the wildlife competition winning $730.00. Henrik is an award winning photographer who has an excellent website: www.spranz.org. His website has a stunning portfolio of nature, landscape, and wildlife photos. I can only image the excitement a photographer would have capturing this ground squirrel at the perfect moment.

Congratulation to Janne Kahila from Finland who has won $818.00. Janne has an excellent website with more of his fantastic photos: jkahilaphotography.com Thank you to everyone who entered one of the 159 entries and to the judges at the Harvey Milk Photo Centre.

Eva describes herself as a hobbyist, but clearly her photography is of a professional standard. Eva took this photo with a Leica M6, and I'm sure she will make good use of the Leica M Monochrome.
