The World Deserves Witnesses
A witness: someone who sees what the others simply watch. When Leica invented the first 35mm camera in 1914, this allowed people to share their stories and the world around them. Today, as for more than a century, Leica keeps celebrating these witnesses. These are the ones who see everyday beauty, grace and poetry, and the never-ending irony and drama of our human condition, bringing their cameras to the eye in order to frame moments forever.
Now it's your turn to become a witness
From great history come great stories. Stories we help create, stories we share, and stories that have been with us for generations. Photographers have always played a big part in capturing these stories. Now it's your turn to become a witness. Submit to one of the open categories (Joy and Hope) and have your work selected to form part of the next wave of Leica’s “THE WORLD DESERVES WITNESSES” campaign.
Organised by Leica, the call will be run using the Picter platform. Photographers should register at Picter to enable them to submit their images.
