Send your exposed, unprocessed roll film to ANALOGICA
to take part in 36EXP the first photographic contest dedicated exclusively to roll films.
Final Deadline: August 31th, 2018
There was a time when photographing was synonym for surprise.
We gazed upon what we wished to photograph, trying to imagine the final result, and snapped. Then, we waited for the film to be developed. Our photo was only in our head. Nothing was immediate. Even Polaroid photos took a few minutes before slowly appearing in our hands.
Photographing was not a synonym for immediacy. Rather for surprise.
We never knew exactly what the film was going to show.
Wrong photos, beautiful photos, forgotten photos...
photography always had an element of surprise.
Then digital photography came along and everything became instant, or rather simultaneous. It is possible to see the final result of a photo just by looking at the LCD screen of our camera, and we can add filters or modify colors. We know how the photo will look like ahead of time.
No more exciting waits and no more surprises.
Over the last few years, though, someone has wanted to go back to the old way of photographing: among them are those who have just discovered this kind of photography and those who never ceased to buy analog films, even when nobody seemed to have given them up.
You can do anything you want with your roll film: tell a story, create a small reportage, or just show us how you see the world. There's no limit on the topic.
SENDING THE ROLL FILM
Download the participation form, fill it out and print it. It's very important that you include the form with your roll film, without it we cannot accept your entry. Put everything into an envelope and send it to the address specified in the form.
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT
All roll films will be developed by ANALOGICA. Maximum 3 reels will be selected, printed in a book and exhibited in Bolzano, Italy in 2018.
Each selected participant will receive a LAB-BOX - The first multi-format daylight-loading film tank-, offered by our technical and main sponsor ARS-IMAGO.
Once the selected works have been chosen, negative films will be returned to the respective authors (including the winners). We'll use the address provided by you in the participation form, so make sure to double check it!
A fee is required to take part in 36EXP. This includes the development of the film and return-shipping fees of negative.
