    Nikon Photo contest held since 1969 will not accept film images anymore

    http://www.nikon.com/news/2012/1025_contest_01.htm


    •Eligible Works
    •Categories A and B
    •Image data files created with digital cameras (including medium- and large-format cameras). Images that have been retouched using software or by other means will be accepted. Both color and monochrome images will be accepted. (Scans of photographs taken with film cameras are not eligible.)

    Nikon makes the greatest 35mm SLR of all time, and then, while still producing it, will not allow it's users to submit thier photos to Nikon's own contest.

    That's not right.

    I'm sending them a hot letter, I would suggest to everyone that they do the same. Nikon's been one of the longest holdouts for 35mm gear, we need to send a message that now isn't the time to stop.

    That's why I like using Minolta cameras and lenses. I'm sure they cannot disappoint me any more

    Nikon Photo contest held since 1969 will not accept film images anymore

    Let's flood the contest with scanned images of negs and prints anyway, as a protest.
