    This makes no sense.

    Ok, so I have come across at least 4-5 images in this fickr pool that are from outside the U.S. Can these people not read?

    Also, what is with all the toy cameras?

    I can't see why it would matter. I certainly wouldn't want the Disney trip anyway so they could just post the film to me!

    Doesn't worry me, I was a recipient of Kodak's expired film giveaway and thanks to that I have discovered I like Portra much more than Ektar

    - Why is this on some Kodak employees blog, and not on Kodak's main page

    - Why does Kodak even no longer feature any direct link to it's professional films on its main page ("http://www.kodak.com")

    That last thing is really sad. Only babbling about digital stuff, a link to "consumer film & processing" hidden away, and links to cinematic film, nothing about still film...

    "First Place winner will receive one year's supply of Ektar 100 Film up to 1200 rolls;"

    Yeez, I haven't even shot more than about 250 35mm rolls in the past 5 years, and that was including a one year professional photography course where I went through maybe 100 rolls! That is a life times supply for some

    Ok, I now discovered the link to professional film products can be found by using the entire upper right "All Kodak Products & Services" link... but I would have hoped they had made it a bit more prominent...

    My question about the images from outside the US is this: Why enter a contest if you are completely ineligible to win?

    Because you've already posted the photo on flickr anyway, might as well put it where someone will see it?

    Sure, it wastes the time of the judges, but it's just a flickr group. They also have to somehow verify that those are actually shot on Ektar.
