    We recently invited followers of our facebook page to take part in a survey which 1,700 photographers completed on-line, it told us amongst other things that well over 30% of those who took part have no access to a darkroom, but would love to have access, if it was available near where they live.

    The survey was designed to try and understand just how many photographers shoot film but are unable to access darkroom facilities. It is our belief that without darkroom access those shooting film don't enjoy the craft experience to the full extent, and of course miss out on the magic of the darkroom.

    We want to try and create a worldwide web site, which HARMAN will invest money and resource in, which brings those with a darkroom into contact with those who do not, our belief and experience of APUG members is that they would wish to support such an idea and I have inserted a link below for you to take part in a survey that asks key questions. We want to hear and understand your views and opinions and test out our 'concept' in the real world, so if you think the idea is great, or mad ! please take the survey, all individual feedback is kept confidential but we will of course share an overview of our findings with the APUG community in due course.

    If we go ahead with the idea we intend to give ABSOLUTE TOP BILLING to the amazing people who offer HIRE DARKROOMS and COMMUNITY darkrooms around the world who have already done so much for supporting our craft.

    With Many Thanks

    Thats a great initiative from Ilford! Could we also ask that you make your films and chemistry available in India? I am having to either import or ask friends to bring them over!
    (Oh and yes, I filled up the survey!)
    Also as others have suggested, why not invest more in APUG itself?

    I don't know who might have said to invest in APUG itself, but I know you're new here, but Ilford does invest in APUG, financially they advertise here, notice the banners of advertisers and you will see ilford.

    I did in post #40. This what I said:

    Hello Simon,
    I welcome your idea and I'll fill out the survey. Just one comment: that "worldwide web site" you're contemplating about already exists: http://www.apug.org So, instead of creating a new one, please put your money and effort in this forum. It will even give you a head start with an already filled databank full of darkroom info and participants.
