“Vivid Color” Film Photography Contest

Flowers are bursting into bloom, the days are drawing longer, and we’re breaking free of our winter coats. Spring has officially stepped on to the scene. As a nod to the fresh arrival of the season’s vibrant tones, we’re celebrating with the launch of our next contest: “Vivid Color.” Slide film, vibrant C-41, cross processed, color infrared–you name it. If it’s poppy, saturated film, we want to see it!
