“Good Morning” Film Photography Contest!

By Trevor Lee In Film Photography Contests

Mornings. Whether you love them or loathe them, we all experience them. But what are your mornings like? What makes them good? The smell of fresh-brewed coffee, the sweet arrival of sunrise, the moment of calm before the world wakes up. For our next film competition, show us something you love about your mornings! Bed head portraits, coffee, commute candids, sunrise, cafes - anything that incapsulates your “Good Morning.”

“From The Hip” Film Photography Contest

By Trevor Lee In Film Photography Contests

Forget composition and throw perfectionism to wind.  We want your candids, your spur of the moment captures.  We're challenging you to "Shoot from the Hip".  Sometimes the best image on the roll is the one you didn't plan for - it may be slightly off focus, not precisely exposed but somehow perfectly captured the moment!

Winners Selected – “Black & White Portraiture” Film Photography Contest

By Trevor Lee In Film Photography Contests

There’s something awesome about portraits captured on black & white film. With color out of the equation, monochrome tones highlight what's most important: the person - their expression, their distinct features and emotion. We always enjoy seeing your black & white captures. For that reason, we are excited to announce our next film photography contest, "Black & White Portrait"!

“Black & White” Film Photography Contest!

By Trevor Lee In Film Photography Contests

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.
