The Carl Zeiss Photo Contest 2012

zeiss “The moment that knows no limits” is the motto of the Carl Zeiss Photo Contest 2012.

As in every year, the contest is open to anyone, as long as pictures are taken with a ZEISS lens. It does not matter if an image has been created with an SLR reflex camera or with a Nokia smartphone with a built-in ZEISS lens.

There are moments in life when suddenly everything is possible. In such a moment, nothing can hold you back – no routine, no comfort, no walls and no boundaries in this world. “We want to see moments that are so full of energy that they create room for something completely new,” explains Martin Dominicus, Head of Marketing for the Carl Zeiss Camera Lens Division.

Carl Zeiss invites photographers from around the world to look for these moments and to submit an image that fits the theme by January 15. “We intentionally chose to keep the theme relatively open so that photographers can interpret it in very different and creative ways. We are very curious what we will receive,” says Dominicus.
