“The pulse of the city” was the theme of this year’s Carl Zeiss photo competition. Photographers from almost 40 different countries participated in the contest. The international jury consisting of ten including star photographer Uwe Ommer had to view over 1.000 images.
„The image by Mr. Colin Jones from the USA particularly fascinated the jury and myself,” jury member Uwe Ommer commented the decision.
„The picture captures the topic of the competition in a melancholic way. The dingy light situation underlines the atmosphere and draws the viewer into the streets of China.”
The second prize was won Thomas Jake from California in the USA. Thomas Birke from Germany won the third prize. The Jury was very pleased with the numerous images entered into the contest and the creativity used to translate the theme “pulse of the city”. All winning pictures can be viewed on the web site of the company at
