CALLs FOR ENTRy
9TH ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL JURIED PLASTIC CAMERA SHOW
It’s that time of year again! RayKo’s plastic camera competition is open to artists working with plastic cameras with plastic lenses. The more obsolete, flawed, and lo-tech, the better. Images should be taken with cameras with limited controls, such as, but not limited to Diana, Holga, Lubitel, Lomo, Banner, and Ansco cameras. Beautiful prints from less-than-gorgeous cameras – that’s what we’re looking for! This is RayKo’s largest exhibition of the year with artists from all over the globe submitting work! We’re excited to see this year’s entries! Long live film!
This year's featured artist is Gordon Stettinius
Best of Show - $500 cash prize and 4 Honorable mention juror awards
