Describe the brief from the client
9 years ago, Leica entered partnership with Fotografe magazine launched a photography contest. Contestants found out about the contest through word-of-mouth and ads placed within the magazine itself. Our first job for the account was to create the ads for this much-praised contest. In addition, we also thought about other non-paid formats that would help spread the word about the contest.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
Our objective was to make the contest even more well-known and make it easier to enter, without having to resort to paid-media. Our secondary objective was to incentivise photography in Brazil.
The title was created to reinforce the rigor behind the contest to better value its winners.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
Leica is a classic machine. We explored a design classic, and a classic method of printing.
