Yes, but you missed the cutoff by a bit more than two weeks. Orders needed to be placed no later than June 12 for delivery in the fall. Look for another order period next spring.

In the meantime, if you don't need too much, there's a possibility that one or more members here might sell a bit of theirs. Also, dealers occasionally order extra for later resale, so you could find some on offer after stock reaches them in September/October.

Yes, Ilford's special order period for small-quantity orders of ULF and other specialty film sizes ran from April 8 - June 12 this year.

This is always announced both at APUG and on Ilford's website:

Freestyle will probably have some whole plate when the orders arrive. They see themselves as one of the last holdouts so they probably will have one of the more common sizes as whole plate.
