“Win a trip to Cologne including accommodation and free admission to photokina for two days!

We invite you to attend our preparations for the trade show – “On the Way to Cologne” – on social media and take part in several challenges. If you participate in the challenge “You and your photo at photokina” you might be the lucky one meeting us in person on September 20 and spending the weekend at photokina in Cologne. ZEISS pays for the flight, hotel and trade show tickets.

Show your photo at the ZEISS booth and win!

At the ZEISS booth there will be a digital 4K gallery that demonstrates the performance of ZEISS lenses. Moreover the most beautiful photos taken by ZEISS fans from all over the world will be on display. You want to show your photo at our booth and thus be present at photokina? Learn how to participate below.

For each challenge there’s a part of our image solution that every participant will receive as private message. Everyone who participated in all five challenges will be able to put together the image solution from all individual parts and discover hints to the new ZEISS products of this year’s photokina. Will you be among the first to guess what we will show?

“You and your photo at photokina”. That’s how it works:

Upload your best 4K ZEISS photo (minimum resolution of 3840 × 2160 pixels) until August 27 to our Flickr group and tag it with #zeissphk14. Photos can be submitted in landscape as well as portrait format. If you aren’t on Flickr, you can also post your photo to the ZEISS Facebook page or via @mention on Twitter (@carlzeisslenses) within the same deadline. You don’t have to upload it on Facebook and Twitter in 4K. However, you should have your photo available in 4K resolution. It is important that you don’t forget to use the hashtag #zeissphk14. So we’ll know that you are participating in the challenge and want to win the trip to Cologne and photokina.

In case your photo is chosen, we’ll contact you again with the details. A ZEISS jury then choses a lucky winner from the photos to be shown at photokina. Until September 3 we will contact the participant who will get the chance to travel to cologne and visit photokina.
