HAHAHA well obviously, film is competition to them now. There is nothing to gain and possibly something to lose from giving a prize to a film photograph. This is Nikon…a big digital camera producing company who couldn’t give a damn about photography but they are very interested in selling their product though, they will sell a D800 to any poor shmuck who thinks his camera will take nice pictures for him…they are only interested in steering the consumer toward their product and making their product as profitable to them as possible. I don’t know..just theorizing I guess, all I know is that if a product was not a threat there would be no reason to prohibit it.
