Last month, we launched the very first photo competition to honor the phenomenal New Petzval Lens. With over 300 submissions, choosing the very best ones was certainly a challenge! Are you ready to see who made the cut?
The Petzval Apprentice Competition is the first contest dedicated to the Petzval Lens. The rules were pretty simple: all photos taken with the New Petzval Lens are eligible for submission, and it is open to everyone from across the globe.
Our esteemed panel of judges, including Geoffrey Berliner, a Petzval Collector and the Executive Director of the Penumbra Foundation and the Center of Alternative Photography in New York City, sorted through the entries for the top 5 winning photos.
Roll out the red carpet as we present the winners, in no particular order:
Congratulations to all the winners!
We would like to thank everyone who participated in this competition. Stay tuned for more exciting photo competitions happening soon!
