I do not have even a fraction of the photographic ability to compete with the talent here in APUG - and in any event the chances of my blasted darkroom actually being built enough to make prints in by March is vanishingly small - but I must say what an outstanding piece of work by Ilford.
I may not be entering but I'll still play my small part by making sure to buy one of the commemorative packs as soon as they are available!
That's great Simon. Unfortunately I'm ruled out.
Stocking with 120 B&W film yesterday all the conventional Ilford 120 film was rather short dated 2002 !!! and only a few rolls of HP5 at that. I didn't check the XP-2. The Forte was of a similar age, but the 25 rolls of Fomopan was only 2 months out of date, all five rolls of Acros 100 were miraculously 2009-12 expiry date. Some of the B&Wv paper must have been well over 10 years old, the shop was well stocked, but with old outdated materials.
Talking direct to IstanbulI was told I could have fresh HP5 in a week but not the Delta 400 I wanted as it wasn't imported in 120 only 35mm.
So it's unlikely I could enter but pigs might fly :D I still have a few rolls of 120 FP4, Delta 100 & 400 and a Pan F left, plus a few hundred sheets of 5x4 :) now to find a darkroom or return to the UK before the end of March.
Thanks simon for the opportunity
Talk about providing inspiration on a cold, grey winter day. My condolences to Dr. Rudman, though. Something tells me the competition will be pretty tough!
Hmmm. I use Ilford film, and transfer my carbon prints onto fixed-out Ilford photo paper, but I don't think that counts. I might have to try my hand in silver printing again...it has been a long time since I was seriously into it..16 or 17 years.
This is beyond awesome Simon. I can't wait to see the results! Ilford has gone above and beyond to support us over the years, I am very grateful for this support and continue to enjoy the relationship between our organizations. I might have to hit you up for one of those printer proofs, would look great framed and hanging in my living room :)
This is super cool..and good for APUG as well.
Kudos to ILFORD/Harmann
Most I like is that the image has still to be taken. There is a lot to do ;)
COOL BEANS!!!! :D
This is a great gesture Simon... thank you and Ilford very much.
Luckily, I use Ilford film and paper :)
