Leica's Oskar Barnack Award Deadline Approaches

Leica-M9-P-Oskar-Award.jpgFor the 33rd year in a row, Leica has launched the Oskar Barnack Award competition, giving photographers the chance to show what they can do and win some impressive cash and gear.

Whether you're a professional or amateur photographer, you can submit your work for consideration. Those under the age of 25 that aren't professional photographers can enter in the newcomer category if they prefer.

The winner of either category will take home a Leica M9-P and lens, but whoever takes the main award - not the newcomer award - will get 5,000 euros to boot. That's around $6,300.

You have until March 1st to submit your work directly through the Oskar Barnack Award website.
