Because it is making a statement against film through either marketing, technical ( lack of EXIF ) or philosophical reasons that set the wrong tone, in short, it is bullshit...

I have no interest in entering the contest but I am a self appointed watchdog for film advocacy and I simply want to know why they have done this, it makes no sense.

But in terms of EXIF, problem solved easily, just scan your slide or neg with a DSLR and macro lens...;-)
