    Thanks Simon, How exciting! Although my attempts at photography pale in comparison to the shots I've seen on this group, I think I'll attempt if I can get my darkroom together in time. I havn't bought any paper or B&W film (other than that wich is processed for me) so I'll have to get Ilford! I may just have to set up temporary space in the basement for my darkroom! Lori

    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 The Forte was of a similar age, but the 25 rolls of Fomopan was only 2 months out of date, all five rolls of Acros 100 were miraculously 2009-12 expiry date. Some of the B&Wv paper must have been well over 10 years old, the shop was well stocked, but with old outdated materials.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 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.

    Ian,

    I'm surprised you couldn't find 120 Delta400 in Istanbul. It shouldn't be a problem. I have bought and used it here.

    Also, you're welcome to use my darkroom if you can make it to Istanbul. My enlarger can take 6x6 negs and I can print up to 16x20.

    Cheers,
    omar

    An excellent scheme. Well done Simon and Ilford once again!
    I suppose my only slight reservation is that the final item will be reproduced directly from the neg, which precludes any dodging, burning etc. on the submitted print.
    A good excuse to get out and do some photography, if one was needed!

    Best wishes,

    Steve

    Thanks Simon and Ilford/Harman; it is so reassuring that you continue to support film and darkroom practices.

    Wow, thanks Simon. This gives me a reason to get out and shoot. I have been putting together the 1000's of images I have shot for my Memento Mori series and after going out to shoot everyday for 10 years, and now not for two months I know I am in image capture withdraw. What a wonderful project for all of us and with us behing the competition nothing can go wrong with Illford.
    I certainly want to get on the list for the special papers.
    I just need some days of sunshine.
    Thanks
    Michel

    I feel the same way, too, Tim - but I agree with Steve. I'll keep pluggin' away!
    Plus, it's always a good excuse to go play in the swamp.

    Forgive me if I messed up the quote thing.

    Thanks Omar, I may take you upon that offer, I'll PM you

    I've enquired before with the regards to Delta 100 in 5x4 & 400 in 120 and been told they aren't imported, but this may have changed. My nearest decent photo shop in Izmir is has it's main store in Istanbul and they are very helpful, I also spoke to the Ilford importers two years ago.

    It was remiss of me not to say thanks to Simon in my earlier post for all his support to APUG & its members and for coming up with this competition.

    Ian
