    This might actually be a good idea. Maybe we can get Ilford, Kodak, fuji and Rollei/Maco to sponsor the contest

    Well, as a non-competitor in general I am tempted to make a real photograph, quickly print it and make a copy at the right location and at the right time on a friend's Nikon camera (so the exif data looks right) and submit that - Given that I am a super cool photo dude I am bound to win, then declare the truth when they give me the cheque

    However, when the cheque is proffered, will I just take the money and run?

    2012-2013 Nikon Small World (microphotography) contest explicitly states film or digital entries, even slides, accepted.

    But if you look at the actual images selected for their microphotog contest you'll see most of them
    are derived from relatively high-tech colorization techniques - not PS, but the kinds of artificial color
    enhancement actually used in reseach and medical applications. Some of those high-end Nikon microscopes can only produce digital images because they split apart certain wavelengths of light in
    order to reassemble them more tightly than ordinary optics can at such high levels of magnification.
    A fifty K microscope can do a lot things an ordinary one can't. But I'd love to get my hands on a
    vintage 70's Zeiss micropsope like I used studying microbiology, or a polarizing one like I used in the
    geology lab, and then put a large format film head on it, just for fun.
