    Does it have to be a clone? Or can it be just a mini?

    does the background matter? should it be a plain/white background?

  9. gabysalas
    gabysalas ·

    @ All, please just Diana Clones, no Minis.... Also, the background doesn't have to be white, but the less busy, the better!

    Is it 5 piggies per picture submitted or just 5 piggies total for all 10?

  12. gabysalas
    gabysalas ·

    @sthomas68 its 5 piggies total, regardless of how many pictures you submit, but remember, in order to get the 5 piggies, your picture must be in the format we requested.

  27. gabysalas
    gabysalas ·

    @All: I am working on seeing which photos fit the requirements and then will distribute the Piggies.
    @acidgirl: Diana Clones are different versions we have created of the Diana F+ you can see them here in the shop:

    will it be a winner for this one?

  29. gabysalas
    gabysalas ·

    @-alia-: there are no winners for this competition, only people who submitted photos in the correct format as stated above will receive piggies.

  30. tomato_juice

    when will the people whohave submitted photos (correctly) receive the piggies? I hope mine is ok...

  31. emanuele
    emanuele ·

    when we know who have the piggies?

  32. xxxanderrr
    xxxanderrr ·

    @gabysalas :
    to be honest, the format isn't THAT clear.
    - landscape format, which means the picture must've been taken with 35mm film? So does that put any 120mm film out of the "correct format" ?
    - the background - it is not specifically stated that the background should be white; hence, are any backgrounds allowed to be labeled "correct" ?

  33. gabysalas
    gabysalas ·

    @xxxanderrr: I apologize if the image and wording was not clear. Our intention was to have the diagram (a rectangular horizontal image, with a person in the middle, holding the camera) be enough. Because the diagram shows a rectangular image, we would assume people would not submit square images. As for the background, it does not in fact need to be white to qualify. Any background will do.

    5 piggies have been given to each participant! :)

    Thank you!!!

    got my piggies... thank you!

  37. xxxanderrr
    xxxanderrr ·

    so, just because my picture was taken on 120 film and not 35mm, it doesn't fit the format?

    * Film/Camera Type: Any analogue photo not digitally enhanced or manipulated."

    read: ANY analogue photo. That includes all formats by definition.

    please understand my confusion: you ask us to show off our Diana clones, you ask us to show our love for the Diana cameras, yet you claim that a picture taken with a film format that is in the very nature of the Diana cameras is not WORTHY of this???

  38. gabysalas

    @xxxander: I guess that was my mistake. I am sorry. The whole point of this rumble was to make you guys a cool surprise, but we needed the pictures in the pictured format... Sorry about that. Obviously we do not think the Diana F+ is not worthy, we Love Diana, as a matter of fact, the whole competition is an ode to her!

    @elletra, unfortunately, there were not enough submissions with the correct format for us to work out what we wanted to... Sorry...

  41. elletra
