I hate the name "Camera Porn," but most people know this term.

Full Rules at My BLOG: http://antiquecameras.net/blog.html

Starting today, I am accepting images of Antique and Classic Cameras or Lenses, or any photographica for that matter, for a contest that I am sponsoring. Among all the entries, I will select the top 3 images, then post them on my website for viewers to vote on and select the final winning image. Winning photographer will receive $ 100.00 CASH sent via paypal.

THE IMAGE MUST INCLUDE AN ANTIQUE OR CLASSIC CAMERA, LENS OR OTHER PHOTOGRAPHICA (otherwise crassly known as "Camera Porn"). The image can be of anything as long as a camera, lens or photographica is included (1839-1959)

If your image is one of the finalists, it will be showcased on the antiquecameras.net website and/or Blog.

You will be credited for the image and all rights remain with you forever. We do reserve the right to permanently leave or display a copy of your image (with full credits) on antiquecameras.net

Image should be of any item of photographic interest within the 1839-1959 period.

Top 3 images will be selected based upon originality, aesthetic appeal and subject interest.

Limit of 3 images per person. Each image should be sent in individual emails.

I am accepting images for the period of October 1-15th. However, I do reserve the right to extend these dates if interest warrants it. On or about October 16th, the 3 finalist images will be put on the site for voting by the viewers of my site. Voting will finish on October 31st. Final image winner to receive prize no later than November 5th, 2011.

never heard that expression before - learned something today.....

Good idea - I don' t think I can make a contribution in that limited amount of time (have to go to Prague tomorrow - somebody has to, you know...).

But I am looking foreward to see the results.

If I had anything in that age range I would gladly submit it, but right now all of my equipment is from 1990s - Present

Nice deal, but I don't really think this post belongs here in the 'For Sale' section.

is this analog only?

is this analog only?

Not to sound like a jerk but unless you know of a digital camera that has pre-existed before analog, I think the answer would be a yes

10-03-2011, 02:01 AM
Wouldn't surprise me if analog computers outnumbered digital ones in 1959. :)

Any photographica within the image should have been produced before 1960. Hope this helps. Examples below.

I think what j-dogg meant was whether the image had to be taken with film, or if it was alright for it to be take on digital.

If you have been following the saga related to the Antique & Classic Camera Image Contest voting, I regret to inform you that some person(s) manipulated the voting and corrupted the results thus far. So, I have decided to change the way voting is done and will now require a legitimate email address is posted along with a validation question to help eliminate any funny business. Also, votes will require my approval before they are posted to ensure the validity of each vote. Its not fool proof, but this process will have more controls than before. Its a shame this happened, but live and learn. Please note your email address will not be shared nor used in anyway, however it will be visible during the voting period. Once the voting is over, the poll will be deleted so email addresses are not used by others.
