Just a few days left to enter your selfie and win $20,000

October 14th, 2014 ( Updated 5 days ago )

There are only a few days left to enter your selfie into the 500K likes selfie competition and win a cash prize of $20,000. It's completely free to enter.

Looking a the entries so far, many of them don't look like selfies, so there's still a big opportunity for anyone with a good selfie photo. Selfies must look like they are photos of yourself taken by yourself, rather than a photo taken by another person.

Congratulations to Benno Riffel from Sinsheim in Germany. Benno has won the jaw-droopingly large prize of $10,860.00 and a Leica M MONOCHROM body worth $8000.00. Benno said, "Wonderful...I'am so happy...". We are happy for you Benno - well done. The only down side to winning this prize is that, Leica's monochrome camera is so popular there can sometime be a wait for the production to meet the demand.

The judges Thorsten Overgaard and Birgit Krippner have picked 34 winning shots from 1086 entries. Thank you for everyone who entered this black-and-white competition. It's wonderful to see how popular this competition is, and the high standard of entries. Sometimes by removing the colour from photos and putting more emphasis on texture and form it is possible to create some very artistic and eye-catching images. We look forward to seeing more of your black-and-white photos in the next competition.

Catherin Arsenault from Canada has won $254.40 plus a Leica C worth $700 with a super black and white shot of a sphynx cat. The judge Illona Haus has chosen 10 winning shots from 212 entries. Well done to the winning photographers and a big thank you to everyone who entered.

Hairless cats may look like aliens from another planet, but with more and more people suffering from allergies, these magnificent moggies are going to be the perfect pet for some people. I wonder if they get sun burnt in the summer. It's great to see such a variety of breeds, and shooting styles in this competition.
