“Black & White” Film Photography Contest!

There’s something awesome about black & white film. It’s classic, it’s beautiful – we could probably write a novel about our love for it. But we’re not writers, so we won’t do that. Instead, we’re dedicating our next contest to black & white photography – portraiture, street photography, landscapes, architecture, all of it. If it’s black & white film, it qualifies. Join us and share your favorite shots.

This contest will run March 8 through April 28, 2017.

For chance to win a sweet film camera from our Camera Bar all you have to do is post your black & white film photos on our Facebook wall or on your Instagram. Be sure to tag us, use the #TheDarkroomLab_BW17, explain the photo in the caption, and be sure to tell us the film type, camera used, and where you got it developed (hopefully The Darkroom!). Limit 3 film photo entries and must reside in The United States.

Good luck!!!


1. Upload your FILM photographs to our Facebook wall or post to your Instagram page.  Be sure to tag us and use the #TheDarkroomLab_BW17 hashtag.
