127 Day is just under one month away - on Monday, the 12th of July, 2021. This would be a good time to make sure your 127-format camera is working and you have the film you need.
Film Photography will feature 127-format photographs made on the 12th of July, 2021, in a special online exhibition. You're invited to participate!
No fees, no competition, just a friendly virtual community joining together to make 127-format photos on the 12th of July, 2021.
To show your work,
- Take 127-format photographs on the 12th of July, 2021.
- Send one of your 127-format photographs from the 12th of July to 127 Film Photography. Please email one jpg file, 500 pixels wide, to 127filmformat ~at~ gmail.com, by August 12, 2021. (This allows a month to get your film developed and scanned).
- In the subject line of your email, type "July 2021 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 EXACTLY (you don't have to use initials if you prefer to be known by your full name!). If you want to direct people to an Instagram page, please use the URL for the page, NOT an "@" handle (which will not work as a link).

All types of 127 film format* are welcome, whether the film began its existence 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 an 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 photos!
Good light and happy photographing!
*Sorry, digital photos in an aspect ratio similar to 127 film (or any other digital photos) do NOT qualify.
