Contests Leica

Leica 35mm Lens Competition

Leica Fotografie International and LEICA Camera AG is running a competition until December 31, 2009 where you can win a Leica X1 by submitting your best photographs (maximum 10) taken on a classic 35 mm reportage lens — any brand on any camera [see list of acceptable lenses below].

This is not a Leica-exclusive contest, so all camera platforms are welcomed. Entries can be in color or B&W, in portrait or landscape format.
