We've been working on hosting a photo contest for some time. Finally, after overthinking the name for it, we decided to just keep it simple and take the plunge.
As we said, we're keeping this first contest simple: any subject matter, any film. It just has to have been processed in a SP-445 film tank. Of course, there are prizes:
- First prize: box of FomaPan 100 or 400 film (winners choice)
- Second prize: box of Shanghai 100 film
- Third prize: package of our "Special Cut" contact paper
To enter, just post your favorite photo on either Twitter, Instagram or our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/StearmanPress/
Be sure to include the hashtags: #SP445 #OctPhotoFest (note: you must include both hashtags.)
You can also enter here: OctPhotoFest contest
Entries will be judged on artistic expression, composition and technical merit.
Multiple entries by one contestant are allowed. However, only the three most recent will be considered by the judges and no contestant can win more than one prize.
Ask your friends to vote! (However, while the number of votes may influence the judges, the number of votes will not be the deciding factor in awarding prizes.)
Contest starts now; ends October 31st. Here's the fine print (pdf file): contest rules.
