Photo Contest For Jan 2018 Edition of Darkroom Underground - Winter Landscapes

December 03, 2017  •  1 Comment

I am excited to announce the photo contest for the January 2018 edition of the Darkroom Underground Magazine.  We want to publish your single best analog photograph of a winter landscape.  

Any analog format is allowed (35mm, 120 Medium Format, Large Format) using any analog medium (film, paper negatives, wet plate, dry plate, etc.).  

The winner will be published in the January edition of the magazine and receive one package of Hahnemühle Fine Art Photo Paper.  As the winner, you will get to choose between 1 package of any Hahnemühle Fine Art Inkjet Paper (8.5 x 11", 25 Sheets) or 1 package of Hahnemühle Platinum Rag Fine Art Paper (8 x 10", 25 Sheets)!

Your single submission must have been exposed on an analog medium and your photograph can be scanned or you can take a photograph of it.  

Only submit one image for review (see details below). 

We will be judging your winter landscape photograph based on technical skill and creative expression.  I will personally review all entries and pick the top 10 for a panel review by our board of advisors.  The winner will be selected by a blind panel review.  No names will be provided to the Darkroom Underground advisory board, only your photograph. I will ask each advisor to select their absolute favorite image and share why they made their selection.  I will be providing their feedback to the winner via a private email.   

I have included the relevant information in the text below for your review:
