Whether you’ve been a Pinhole practitioner for a long time or are just starting to experiment, we want to see your best Pinhole photo. It can be taken through a Diana F+ or dustbin, a Multi-Pinhole Operator or a Mini Lomo Pinhole, we don’t care as long as the photo you enter is (a) analogue and (b) pinhole!

We’ve got 15 Piggy Points for the winner and 5 Piggies to award to 2 runners-up. So get thinking, the competition ends on the 18th May!

◦Film/Camera Type: Any analogue pinhole photo not digitally enhanced or manipulated.
◦Upload Limit: 5 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)

    Time for me to be a dum dum! is a 'Pinhole' shot still a pinhole shot if you use a lens? (a Diana bulb shot with lens as an example) Or must it be lens-less? Ta x

    @ade - Yes, a pinhole shot is a photo without a lens - So take the lens off your Diana, switch it the 'p' setting and then take a photo :-)
    @yopanic - You can always try making your own pinhole camera - Watch the video from justi quinnell in this video for a guide -…

    @ yopanic you could also try this one as well:…
    Frankly you should have NO lens on a pinhole, it is just a HOLE!
