instant fall contest winners!

October 20, 2010

On Sept. 27, I posted the following details for the instant fall contest:

  • The theme is autumn.
  • The images must be made using instant film (Polaroid, Impossible, Fujifilm, anything, as long as it’s instant).
  • The deadline is October 15, 2010.
  • Your submission should be emailed to jeff at filmfridge dot com
  • All submissions, winning or not, may be posted on this site.
  • The winner gets four packs of PX 600 Silver Shade, a reusable Impossible Project bag, and of course some stickers.
  • The judges are Anne Bowerman and Dave Bias of the Impossible Project NYC office.
  • Judges decision is final.
  • What are you waiting for?

I received 53 entries, all of which (largely) met the autumnal theme, and Anne and Dave had a tough time narrowing it down to just one. The good news is, their decision to pick more than one winner means MORE PRIZES!  The 2nd and 3rd place winners will each get a pack of PX600UV film and an Impossible bag.

I won’t keep you waiting any longer, here are the winning images:

First Place: Leandro Fornasir, Trees and Crows (expired Artistic TZ)

Second Place: Rommel Pecson, Autumn Tree 2 (Polaroid SX-70 film expired 2003, Mamiya RB67)

Third Place: Daniel Schlak, Pumpkin Pyramid (Polaroid TZ Artistic, Polaroid SX-70)

The judges were not aware of the text that Daniel sent with his Third Place Winning entry:

What autumn means to me:
Since I was a child pumpkins ring in the autumn for me. Carving pumpkins into decorative lanterns on halloween
for decorating the front garden and eating delicious pumpkin soup or pie.
This fruit does only grow early autumn and are nature´s nice colorful gift before dark winter is coming.

Of course, the judging in this contest is subjective, and my favorites are different than Anne and Dave’s – I’ll posting some honourable mentions later this week!
