Last year, we celebrated the 175th anniversary of the legendary Petzval with a grand competition featuring photographs taken with Lomography’s rendition of this revolutionary optics: the New Petzval 85 Art Lens. We received almost 600 show-stopping entries, which went under the keen scrutiny of a panel from Lomography and guest judges Geoffrey Berliner, executive director of Penumbra Foundation, Chris Pollard, Matthieu Soudet, and Issa Ng.
Choosing the top photos was a tough call given the variety of techniques and creative twists the participants used to highlight the lens’ signature swirl. And after a long deliberation, here are the winning Petzval masterpieces.
For bagging our top prize, @nathalierichard will receive New Petzval 58 Art Lens and a voucher worth 800 EUR for the Lomography online shop. As a bonus prize*, she will also be featured in Milk Magazine, a weekly youth magazine in Hong Kong.
@jasonmoore wins a voucher worth 600 EUR for the Lomography online shop.
A voucher worth 300 EUR for the Lomography online shop will go to lomographer @ssaii.
Our lucky runners-up will get a voucher worth 100 EUR for Lomography online shop.
Congratulations to our winners and thank you to everyone who participated in this competition! Swing by the Competitions section for a chance to win piggies and other exciting prizes.
*Recipients of the other two bonus prizes will be announced soon. Stay tuned for it!
