We’ve hosted photo contests in the past, and we have decided it’s time to do a photo-contest for all the Milwaukee-area photographers who still #BelieveInFilm. Yep, that’s right - we’re doing a “film only” photo-contest!
Anyone can enter, but your entry has to be a film-based image - and we have to be able to scan it (35mm or 120). So, here’s the gist of it…

1. entrants must bring in their negative/slide to Mike Crivello's Camera and Imaging Center (18110 W Bluemound Rd, Brookfield, Wisconsin 53045) for scanning:
+135 or 120
+color or black-and-white negative, or color slide
+ any year, does >not< need to be a 2017-18 image - it could be 1971!
+must be family-friendly/“PG”
+Maximum of TWO entries per person

2. Once film is dropped-off, Crivello’s will scan the images for the purpose of creating Facebook photo-album. Contest entrants will be able to pick up their film in 3-4 business days.
Scan is for contest purposes only.
3. Crivello’s will then display the scanned images online in a Facebook photo-album.
4. Contest Finalists will be determined by number of “likes" gotten at that photo-album in THREE WEEKS, on Facebook.
5. Top Ten vote-getting images will be printed up to 8x12 and hung up in our Brookfield store!

6. To determine our Top Three Winners, people must come and vote in-store. Each person can vote for two favorite images. Votes are accepted for THREE WEEKS.
7. All Top Ten entrants get to keep their print (must pick up within one month of contest completion).

Third Place gets Fuji Four-pack of C-41 film or 4 rolls Ilford XP2 24-exp.,
Second place gets one Fuji four-pack of film, OR 4 rolls of Ilford XP2 24-exp. AND D&P (1 set of 4x6 prints),
FIRST PLACE gets TWO Fuji four-pack of film, OR 8 rolls of Ilford XP2 24-exp AND D&P (1 set of 4x6 prints).
