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 the the December 7, 2020. You're invited to celebrate this day by sending 127 Film Photography one photograph that you make on 127-format analogue media on December 7, 2020. 127 Film Photography will publish all photographs. The exception is that images of nudity, violence, or exploitation will not be published on this site.

Please email ONE JPG FILE, 500 PIXELS WIDE, to 127filmformat ~at~ gmail.com, by January 7, 2021.

In the subject line of your email, type "December 2020 127 Day."

In the body of the email, please include the copyright symbol and year, 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 THE FORMAT OF THIS EXAMPLE EXACTLY (elements, punctuation, etc. - with the exception that if you prefer to be known by your full name, you don't have to use initials):

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 another technique - if so, please consider writing a short article for 127 Film Photography about it! Photos made on 127 film in a different size camera are welcome too.

The target date for publication of the online exhibition is January 16, 2021.

I look forward to seeing your 127 Day pictures!
