Every year, our friends at RayKo in San Francisco sponsor a plastic camera competition. It's open to artists anywhere in the world who are working with plastic cameras with plastic lenses. As they say, "The more obsolete, flawed, and lo-tech, the better. Beautiful prints from less-than-gorgeous cameras — that’s what we’re looking for! "
All of the winners get the chance to be part of a group exhibition at the RayKo Gallery — by far the biggest show of the year.
We're happy to show some of the highlights from last year's winners here in this slideshow.
And if you use plastic cameras with limited controls, such as Diana, Holga, Lubitel, Lomo, Banner, and Ansco, consider submitting your best work. The Call for Entries is open now for the 2014 competition. Deadline for Submissions: January 7th, 2014.
