Expired Film Competition ended over 2 years ago

Past their prime and useless? Hardly! We love our expired film and we know you guys do as well! It's time to showcase your best shots taken with outdated film and we'll pick winners that are more than fresh!

Don’t you just love stumbling upon a stash of expired film? Sometimes, you remain full of doubt. Has this been stored properly? Will I get usable images out of these? Don’t expired things curdle and grow mold? But at the end of the day, we buy the rolls anyway and continually get blown away by the results. From films that expired yesterday to those dating back more than ten years ago, expired film will always have a place in the heart of every Lomographer. Don’t you agree?

Send in your best expired film photos and we’ll give Piggies to the best ones!

Details:

  • Prize(s): 3 winners of 10 piggies each. All winners will receive a special award badge straight to their LomoHomes.
  • Film/Camera Type: Any analogue photo not digitally enhanced or manipulated. Must use expired film!
  • Upload Limit: 10 photos!
  • Minimum Photo Dimensions: Submissions must be at least 768px in either width or height.
  • Meta data must be completed (camera, film, location & 3 tags).

    Hi @mikeydavies! Yes, Metadata needs to be complete in order to enter this competition :) It will surely be of great help if you plan to join upcoming competitions too! Good luck! :)
