Krappy Kamera® XIII International Juried Competition
Krappy Kamera® XIII International Juried Competition March 1 – April 2, 2011. Our philosophy at Soho Photo is: In the hands of an artist, great photographs can be made with minimal equipment.
We will be searching for extraordinary photographs produced with cameras with lousy lenses. Artists are encouraged to explore this medium and let the creative juices flow while shooting and in the darkroom (wet or digital). Remember, it’s the Krappy Kamera Com- petition – not the Krappy print competition
A Word About Digital : Out-of-the-box digital cameras are not permissible. However, SLR digital cameras may be modified to qualify. Cell phones are not permitted this year.
What is a Krappy Kamera? Examples of the big name brand Krappy cameras are Holgas, Dianas, Ansco (there are many more) and all pinhole cameras. You can also make your “good” camera into a Krappy Kamera by exchanging the lens with a pinhole body cap, Lensbaby, or Holga-type lens. For example, take an expensive 4 x 5 view camera and slap a plastic Holga lens on it and you have a qualifying Krappy camera. Other examples include replacing your SLR digital or film camera’s lens with a Lensbaby or a pinhole body cap. Out-of-the-box disposables or point-and-shoot cameras are ineligible. Remember, just because a camera is old and moldy doesn’t make it krappy. THE LENS IS THE DETERMINING FACTOR
1-5 images $40, 6-10 images $65, 11 – 15 images $85
