    Hi, I was happy to hear about this and wish to thank Ilford for providing high quality and beautiful film and paper products for the darkroom. My photo below will appear on a box of Ilford MG IV pretty soon. The award helps to re-invigorate my darkroom efforts.

    Congratulations! Winning a photo contest proves you are an artist. You must immediately go buy a little black beret.

    Sorry, it's the rule.

    Wow!! That is really great to hear. Things like this really remind you of how small the community really is.

    Congratulations, I am glad one of us won it. HP5 is my favourite 400 ISO black and white film.
