    #GearSelfie Winners

    The Elinchrom Photokina 2016 Contest

    4 weeks of creativity & fun!

    Throughout July 2016, Elinchrom has held an online contest to provide an opportunity for photographers around the world to show their style of photography and enrich our image-making culture.

    Based on the concept of a "Gear Selfie", photographers had to submit a creative photo where both the photographer and some EL equipment was shown.

    After receiving many stunning submissions over the 4-weeks contest period, Elinchrom is very proud to present the 33 best #GearSelfies bellow!

    All of them will be exposed at photokina in September.

    Congratulations everyone for your amazing work!
