Head over here for the announcement of the winners! Congrats to all who entered - the standard was exceptionally high :-)
The purpose of this year's competition is to help people shoot slide film. When we talk to customers about Ektachrome - the biggest film launch of 2018 - we often hear that people would really love to try it, but are reluctant to make the jump. Sometime this is because they've heard that slide film is difficult to shoot 'properly', sometimes they're not sure how to get it processed as their normal lab or home set-up doesn't cater for E6, and sometimes it's because the cost is higher and they're worried that it'll be too expensive for them to experiment and learn.
So we have sat down with Kodak Alaris and SilverPan Film Lab to try and solve this reluctance!
Firstly by running a competition where the community can share their best photos captured on slide film - along with any hints or tips for getting the best out of slide. The theme is 'Focus on the Positives' and we encourage people to submit photos that show the joy of film photography - whatever that means to you!
Winners will be picked by Kodak Alaris and two Grand Winners will receive a goodie bag of Kodak film. Good luck to all entrants!
2. Affordable Slide Film
Secondly we are running a short-term price discount on Ektachrome 35mm to just £10 per roll! This represents a significant drop versus the RRP of £15 (and our usual selling price of £14) and hopefully will remove some of the risk around trying slide film for the first time. This deal will run for the duration of the activity, 11th July - 11th August.
3. Perfect Slide (E6) Processing
We understand that many labs are unable to currently offer E6 processing (including our own excellent partner Digitalab). However Duncan from SilverPan Film Lab has kindly agreed to offer a time-limited deal - if you buy any Ektachrome from Analogue Wonderland during the period of the competition then your film will be delivered with a discount voucher for E6 processing for just £5 per roll with SilverPan! They are a fantastic small-scale processing lab and you can be sure that Duncan will treat your films with precision and love, and he'll also be able to help you diagnose if the results are slightly different to what you were expecting!
So what are you waiting for?! Grab your camera, grab a great deal on film and processing, and get ready to start shooting some gorgeous Ektachrome slide film.
