The newest way isn’t always the best way.  I love new fusion foods and the newest in scientifically gastronomic menus.  But we still eat Jell-O at my house…with cocktail fruit.  No kidding.  I have cookbooks with wonderfully vivid pictures of savory Jello-O creations like salmon mousse terrine mold.  Some ideas are worth preserving, although I cannot vouch for the salmon terrine.  This Call is asking you to preserve a means and method that is a little less than current too.  Interested in exploring this opportunity?

Check out this Call for Entries from RayKo Photo Center (San Francisco, CA) for the 5th Annual International Juried Plastic Camera Show.  The entry fee is low, and I can’t wait to see how many of you own a plastic camera…or end up buying one.  Take a look…

5th Annual International Juried Plastic Camera Show


This competition is open to artists working with plastic cameras with plastic lenses (click the link  if you are looking to buy one). The more obsolete, flawed, and lo-tech, the better.  Images should be taken with cameras with limited controls, such as Diana, Holga, Lubitel, Lomo, Banner, and Ansco cameras.  Beautiful prints from less-than-gorgeous cameras – that’s what we’re looking for!  This is RayKo’s largest exhibition of the year with artists from all over the globe submitting work, and hundreds of attendees at the reception.

ELIGIBILITY:  Open to all artists.

MEDIA:  All work must be original & taken with a plastic camera & plastic lens.

DEADLINE:  Friday, Nov 25, 2011, 11:59pm PST
