IMAGE ON A BOX PHOTOGRAPHIC COMPETITION 2009 – NORTH AMERICA
Published: September 08 2009
Win a ‘box’ of goodies with ILFORD PHOTO! Pioneering monochrome photography specialists launch "Image on a Box Photographic Competition 2009 – North America”!
Calling all ILFORD PHOTO enthusiasts. HARMAN technology – the company behind the traditional black and white photography brand, ILFORD PHOTO – is delighted to announce the launch of a new photographic competition that gives you the chance to see one of your images on the front of the iconic ILFORD PHOTO box.
The “Image on a Box Photographic Competition 2009 – North America” is open to all residents of USA and Canada. Entries must be shot on ILFORD DELTA 400 Professional film and printed on any ILFORD black and white photographic paper.
Entries have to be submitted under one theme: ‘Fine Art’. Arguably a very broad and interesting category, HARMAN technology is excited to see entrants’ interpretation of the theme.
As Steven Brierley, HARMAN’s President of Marketing explains:
“There are countless definitions as to what exactly constitutes ‘Fine Art’ photography and the debate periodically rages within the photographic fraternity and website forums. Some say it is ‘art for art’s sake’. Some say it is a one-off staged composition or is simply an expression of beauty. There is also a school of thought that believes it is a combination of things: original composition, technical skill, artistic interpretation and the quality of the photographic products used to capture the image.”
“With that in mind, our ILFORD DELTA 400 Professional film competition is quite simply themed 'Fine Art'. We are hoping this will inspire the many fine photographers out there to present their own interpretation on this often discussed genre and that it will add to the general debate.”
- US $1000 worth of ILFORD PHOTO black and white products
- Winning image will be printed on the iconic ILFORD PHOTO box.
- Winner will also receive a silver gelatin fine art mounted print of their image.
- US $500 of ILFORD PHOTO black and white products
- US $250 of ILFORD PHOTO black and white products
Steven Brierley concluded:
“This is a continuation of HARMAN technology’s pact to ‘Defend the Darkroom' and there’s no better excuse to express the wonderful art of traditional black and white photography than through a competition.”
Competition Closing Date: June 30th, 2010
