    Cut the crap, look at the prizes..

    5D?! Hmm...a pentax/sekonic spot meter+skills+4x5 (or above) -> 5D is close to useless.

    Something tells me the winning photos for this contest will be shot with digitals.

    I can't imagine why why, I've just got this feeling, see?
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.

    Honestly, I can't imagine either.

    The rules state very clearly that "Photos must be captured with either a digital camera or scanned from a film slide, negative or print and submitted in the baseline JPEG".

    I don't see any particular bias in that.

    But genuinely interesting as it appears to be, this contest has absolutely nothing to do with LF. What I honestly can't imagine is why was information about this particular contest posted here, on LF discussion board and I can imagine even less what would be the reason for contrite responses...

    It actually does look like a very nice little enthusiast contest with very nice prizes. Seriously, what's the problem there?

    I think it would be entertaingly ironic for someone to win this using a large-format film camera and a Nikon lens

    Ironic? Why, isn't the whole purpose of such a contest to discover really talented non-professionals and upgrade their equipment to match their talent?

    IMHO most contests generously give you hints as to what the judges consider worthwhile. I could be wrong of course.

    Lol, wouldn't it be cool if a cyanotype won? Perhaps if it was taken with a digital camera!

    I think the probability of that happening would be just slightly higher than that of an inkjet print winning an award over at apug...
