Black-And-White Photo Competition 4 2015 Results

Congratulations to Eva Depoorter from Antwerp in Belgium who has won $6,030.00 and a Leica M MONOCHROM body worth $8000.00. 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.

Congratulations to the runners-up and thank you to everyone who entered one of the 603 entries. We would also like to thank the judges Thorsten Overgaard and Brigit Krippner.

Horse Photo Competition 4 2015 Results

Isabell Albrecht from Hamburg in Germany has won $248.00 and a Leica C camera. Her photo of a horse is simply stunning. The horse is the centre of the photo, but we can see that so much thought has gone into this photo to capture the atmospheric lighting and good composition.

Thank you to everyone who entered one of the 124 entries and to the judge Illona Haus.

Premium Photo Competition 2015 3 Results

Chris Kirschbaum, an organic farmer/photographer from Oxford Iowa, USA has won $1,130.00 and a Leica X2 Camera worth $2000. This photo has magical lighting. What could be a better childhood than growing up in the countryside and playing with a dog in the local creek? It's a beautiful photo capturing a beautiful moment.

Congratulations to all of the winners and thank you to everyone who entered one of the 226 entries. We'd also like to thank the judges Thorsten Overgaard and Brigit Krippner.

Free Photo Competition 2015 Week 48 Results

Free Photo Competition 2015 Week 48 Results

Congratulations to Dragan Milovanovic from Québec in Canada. A fantastic photo that is probably good enough to win one of the non-free contests.

We don't normally make a blog entry announcing the results of the weekly free competition. This week is an exception. Mainly because we would like to announce a new rule. Photos that have already been entered into the weekly free competition can not be entered again into another free competition. We have had cases where people have entered the same photo 14 times! With this rule we hope to see new photos being entered rather than the same photos. There have been cases where the same photo has won more than one free competition. With the new rule, this would not happen again. If you enter the weekly free competition you will still be able to enter the non-free competitions.

We hope that you continue to enjoy the weekly free competitions and we thank you all for taking part.

Child Photo Competition 2015 No 5 Results

Child Photo Competition 2015 No 5 Results

Sohail Karmani from London (now based in United Arab Emirates) has won the child photo contest with a striking portrait shot. Portrait photos taken with a narrow depth of field can really make the face and eyes the focus of the photo and give a feeling of depth. Perhaps what gives this photo its winning charm is that the boy has a natural scruffiness. It works well as black-and-white emphasising the detail without distracting colors.

Sohail Karmani has won $310.00 and a Leica C worth $700. Thank you to everyone who entered one of the 155 entries, and to the judge Lisa Alessandra Kutzelnig.

As the Leica C is being discontinued the next Child photo contest will have a cash prize starting with a whopping $500 and rising by $2 with every entry. By the time the competition closes to new entries the cash prize could be very large.

Ralph Dutt-Ballerstadt from Portland, OR, USA has won the shadow photo contest. Ralph has won $406.00 plus the price of a Leica C which has now been discontinued. Ralph's skating girl photo has a timeless quality and makes perfect use of the shadows to create an eye-catching composition. Thank you to everyone who entered one of the 203 entries, and to the judge Duncan MacArthur.
