Savor the firsts.  Nothing every tastes quite as good the second time around.  I still remember my first taste of pomegranate.  And the first chocolate cake that came from my Easy Bake Oven remains unrivaled.  For some reason we always assume that things get better with time, but I find that, at least with food, nothing ever beats the first taste.  This next Call requires the photo-equivalent of the Easy Bake.  Interested?

Check out this Call for Entries from RayKo Photo Center (San Francisco, CA) for the 6th 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…

6th 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.
