If you’re looking for a little spice in your life, you’ve come to the right spot. For those of you in South America, clue us in – what makes it so special to you?

With this special rumble you can proudly show us the thrills and exotic flavours that South America brings to the world. Winners will get the chance to take home some Piggy points that can be used in the online Shop, as well as have their images exhibited in the grand Photokina exhibition! As you know, Photokina is a phenomenal trade fair relating to photography and the imaging industry. Help us showcase the wonders of analogue photography in its full glory at this grand show!
