Soho Photo: Krappy Kamera Competition

Krappy Kamera
Deadline: January 8

Soho Photo
New York, NY

Juror: Sandra Carrion

Our philosophy at Soho Photo Gallery is that in the hands of any artist great photographs can be made with basic equipment. To explore this talent, we are searching for extraordinary photographs made with lousy lenses. Examples of some Krappy Kameras are the Holga, Diana, Ansco, and pinhole cameras. You can also create your own Krappy Kamera by using your non-Krappy Kamera (e.g. 4×5, SRL, DSLR) and exchanging the lensz with a Krappy lens (e.g.pinhole body cap or Holga-type lens). Cell phones, disposables and 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.

In honor of the 20th Anniversary, the 1st place award will be $500. The awards for 2nd and 3rd place and three Honorable Mentions are provided by the sponsors: Fuji lm, Lomography, Lensbaby and Freestyle Photographic Supplies. In addition, a People’s Choice award will be provided by Soho Photo Gallery at the opening reception.

Fees: $45 for up to 5 images.
