“Where in the World” Film Photography Contest!

After a couple years of film photography contests and nearly 50 film cameras given away, we are very excited to announce our next film photography contest: Where in the World. That’s right! In response to countless requests to open these contests to those outside the US, we are finally launching our first ever international film photography contest. Share one of your film photos that shows where you’re from and tell us about it in the caption. It could be a portrait, a cityscape, a landscape, etc–as long as it tells a story of your heritage, location, culture, or everyday life.

The Darkroom’s home, San Clemente, captured on Portra 800 with a Leica MP by Trev Lee.
