    12x16in paper? Black&White Mag Competition Requirement

    I Subscribe to Black&White Magazine and the current issue, June 2005, has announced a photo competition that interests me.

    However, it states "All silver print entries must be printed on 12x16in paper.."

    I've never come across paper that size and did a search at my favourite suppliers and found nothing. I don't feel like cutting 16x20in paper. This seems rather odd. Any explanation, I know the editor Ailsa appears in these forums maybe she's reading.

    Deadline is Aug 25. Great 1st prize, a Mamiya 7II.

    I think 12x16 is a standard European size paper, probably known better by its rough metric equivalent 30x40cm.

    J&C Photo has some nice ones.......but a contest isn't the time to break in a new paper. Cutting down a 16X20 isn't the end of the world if you're a serious contender. Is the contest listed on line anywhere?

    Indeed. 12x16 is a standard size in the UK: I mostly buy paper in that size.

    BTW, 11x14, as used widely in the US, is almost unobtainable in the UK (I think Ilford supply it, but few companies stock it) which always struck me as odd as it's a useful size for an 8x10 print. Anyway, I digress.. yes 12x16 is common in Black And White Photography's motherland...

    Why not email Ailsa and ask if 11 x 14 will be acceptable? As I understand the rules the image size is not specified so the slight reduction in paper area should not be too important.

    It's over a month out of date at the newstand here in Ottawa but now that I subscribe I get it well before the date on the cover. Actually, the date's not on the cover since the subscription version has a nice clean cover with a photo and not much else.

    That's why I subscribe. But even though our newsagents are behind, Nige, you will probably still get the May issue in time to put in an antry.

    I don't see any online information. I think they want you to buy at least one issue of the magazine. Highly recommeded.

    It was in the June 2005 issue. £2,300 of prizes. That's about $5,000US I think.
