The Petzval Apprentice Winner Announcement

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!

    same as @patx_ ... I'm quite disappointed, especially with all great analog photos on the community!! @sandravo should have been in this winner list!! :-(

    Congrats to the winners, however... I agree with both @patx and @sweetyyydreams .... I'm diappointed that the winning photos where not film, but digital.

    Thank you @sweetyyydreams, I appreciate your support. Not sure if I should have been in this list, but some film shots sure would have been great. Guess the future isn't as analogue is we had hoped.

    congrats to all - although I am VERY disappointed you did not include at least one FILM photo (there were many that were worthy). Shame on you judges.
