    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Nope. They have simply said that for THIS contest, digital images are required. They have made NO statement about analog photography.

    Agreed...

    Humans are not robots, they base a lot of response on emotions and perceptions. The first thing any of us did when reading that Nikon has done is ask why? So until we get either a press release that states why or someone from within the corporate structure as to why, then we only have our perceptions...

    Imagine if you had saved up a year to buy an F6, got the Nikon World Calendar every year and looked forward to maybe even entering the contest only to hear this announcement...you would be offended...I am offended and I have let them know this and if I don't hear back from them in another 48 hours I am going to call the L.A. office of NPS and talk to someone about it...

    They owe people an explanation at the very least...

    It's just a typographical error. And it's not a Photo contest anymore. It's a Fauxto contest! As if I
    cared anyway.

    Ilford should organize a contest open only to traditional photography. But that would be only B&W then

    Maybe a consortium should be formed between all firms involved in traditional photography: people like Fuji, Ilford, Rollei, Tetenal, etc. and they should promote traditional photography as a whole. That might include organizing a photography contest.

    "THIS contest" is their premier contest.


    They have made NO statement about analog photography.
    Oh they have made a very strong statement.

    Part of that statement is the express statement that their contest will accept no film images.

    I'm sorry you have such a strong inferiority complex regarding analog imaging.

    You are reading something into the Nikon contest that I doubt Nikon intended. You should give them benefit of the doubt.

    As I suggested earlier, write a nice message to Nikon asking they consider adding an analog category to their contest. Please note I said 'nice' - you can always catch more bees with sugar than you can with vinegar. A rant will be ignored.

    When the captain says to abandon ship, women and children first, he doesn't explicitly SAY "...and no men first." But everyone knows what he means.

    The captain's—and Nikon's—point is made by inference.

    This shouldn't require a labored explanation.

    They don't have time to look at slides like in the old days, let alone be responsible for returning something like actual prints. Even museums are using digital submissions. It's just that era. Get used
    to it, just like McDonald's being called food by an entire generation. Besides, Nikon is a business, and
    what they intend to promote is digital consumer cameras, that is, until cell phone photo contests
    put them out of the digital camera business! It's a slippery slope, downhill all the way, once you
    choose that path.
