"I read your review of the M 240 Thorsten von Overgaard. The best review I have read to date. Hands down. Extremely thought provoking and a joy to read. I love that you took the time to really learn the camera, as opposed to jumping out of the gates and posting a review after only spending a weekend with it."

 
  - J. B. R.

Clearwater, Tampa, USA, July 4, 2013

A hot, sunny and wet Florida. But we got some great photos.

 

     
  "Dear Thorsten. I have always been impressed by your art ... and finally I was able to have a chance to have Leica Digilux 2. Finally! I love the camera and I can feel there is something with this camera.
I just wanted to say THANK YOU. I hope all goes well with you and hope I will be able to study and learn from your ART... Thank you from LA"

New York Times Photographer and Pulitzer-Prize Winner Wins the i-shot-it.com Black-And-White Photo Competition

Santa Monica (California, USA), July 12, 2013 (press release)

Damon Winter is the winner of the Black-And-White Photo Competition organized by the online photography platform www.i-shot-it.com. The independent jury, who knew nothing about the photographer or the equipment he used, chose the image captured by the 38-year-old New York Times photographer as the winning photo. It shows a group of US soldiers in Kunduz, Afghanistan, in September 2010, huddled around in full kit, shielding a badly injured soldier with their bodies from the dust storm caused by the rotor wash of a nearby landing helicopter. Damon Winter, winner of a Pulitzer Prize in 2009, can now look forward to a sensational cash prize of around 20,000 US dollars, and a more material prize in the guise of a Leica M Monochrom range finder camera, made by the premium manufacturer Leica Camera AG, valued at 8,000 US dollars.

 


The winning photo by Damon Winter. To see the *Mark of Excellence* photos, visit this page.

 

The members of the jury, Birgit Krippner and Thorsten Overgaard, both of them prominent and internationally acclaimed photographers, praised the multiple layers of information in the winning image and described its composition as a “symphony for the eye.” At the same time, the jury was impressed by the technical perfection with which the photo was shot. “This image is a piece of art,” said both jury members in summary. Another image submitted by the winning photographer – showing US President Barack Obama in the rain – was awarded a “Mark of Excellence.” Damon Winter expressed his delight at the jury’s decision and praised the Web site i- shot-it.com: “I love the site and the contest. When I first came across it, I thought it was such a brilliant concept. I’m so glad they chose that photo. It was one of my toughest days as a photographer and it must be one of my favorite photos that I have ever taken.”

i-shot-it.com was created in 2011 in the United States of America, and since then has developed into one of the most popular photo platforms on the Internet. The Web-based platform allows both professional and amateur photography enthusiasts to enter what they describe as “The Best Photo Competition” in currently 17 categories for a small fee – the winners are then chosen by an independent jury composed of internationally renowned photographers. There are also free competitions, where the members of the i- shot-it community choose the winners themselves via online voting. The prize money is financed using the fees charged for the uploading of pictures. The winners then each receive a high-quality Leica camera in addition to the cash prize. The Internet click rates and growing number of users demonstrate the increasing popularity of the platform. Up to now, i-shot-it.com has recorded nearly 200,000 visits and 3.0 million page views per month, and has around 72,000 registered users. The Web site also has more than 218,000 Facebook fans. The site works in cooperation with Leica Camera AG in Solms, Germany.
