Get out the sugar, flour, and baking supplies, we’re bringing back our Holiday Cookie Contest and have some new things in store!
The idea behind this competition comes from the German tradition of spending time in the kitchen during the holiday season baking up “plaetzchen,” sweet cookies that come in all shapes and colors. The cookies are a great way to show off your creativity and gift to your family and friends in addition to being a nice treat to enjoy for yourself too. Now is your chance to share your photographic sweets with us. It’s time to hit the kitchen and bake up a treat with a Leica and photography theme.
This year’s competition will be hosted on Instagram! One winner will receive a Leica T and an interview with their work will be featured on the blog.
It’s easy to enter: Simply upload a photo of your treat to Instagram with #DasPlaetzchen and follow Leica Camera.
Here are the official terms:

  • Your cookies, sweets (or whatever you would like to bake) have to relate in some way to Leica and photography
  • You must follow @Leica_Camera on Instagram and use #DasPlaetzchen in your entry
  • The cookies or treats have to be made by yourself during the entry period
  • Winner will be selected by the Leica Internet Team and announced January of 2015
  • Winner will receive a Leica T and be featured on the Leica Camera Blog

Submissions for your photos will run from November 25, 2014 to December 31, 2014.
