127 Day

127 Day comes three times a year.
  • January 27 (1/27, in American-style notation)
  • July 12 (12/7, in European-style notation)
  • December 7 (12/7, in American-style notation)
It's a day to celebrate 127 format by making pictures with the quirky old cameras that use it.

The next 127 Day is December 7, 2017. I invite you to celebrate this day by sending me one photograph that you make on 127 film on December 7, 2017. I will publish all photographs.

Please email one jpg file, 500 pixels wide, to 127filmformat ~at~ gmail.com, by January 7, 2018.

In the subject line of your email, type "December 2017 127 Day."

In the body of the email, please include the copyright symbol, your name, the title of the photograph, location, camera and film types, and your website address (or other link to your work). In that order. Please follow this example:

©J. M. Golding, In this silence I hear your voice, northern California, USA, Kodak Brownie Fiesta, Kodak Verichrome Pan (expired 12/75), http://www.jmgolding.com

All types of 127 film format are welcome, whether the film began its life as 127, or you used 35 mm film in a 127 camera, or you respooled 46mm film, or you cut down 120 film to 127 size ... or maybe you have a technique that I don't know about yet - if so, please tell me so I can share it with others who love this format (with full credit to you, of course - or perhaps you'd like to write a short article for 127 Film Photography about it!). Photos made on 127 film in a different size camera are welcome too.

I look forward to seeing your 127 Day pictures!
