Tri-X Factor! The Competition

By Paul McKay

The competition is now CLOSED!


It's time...for the 2021 Kodak / Analogue Wonderland winter photo competition! And this year we're choosing to focus on one of the most iconic black and white emulsions of all time: Kodak Tri-X.

Tri-X was the favoured film of Anton Corbijn, Don McCullin and Sebastião Salgado among others - and its unique aesthetic defined the look of photojournalism for much of the past 5 decades.

Now is your chance to show off your Tri-X skills as well as pick up some rolls for a special limited-time price!


Finding the 'Tri-X Factor'

We are running a competition from today (3rd Feb) until Sunday 7th of March - asking you to share your best photos taken on Kodak Tri-X.

There is no theme - we figured that this year is not the time to introduce extra criteria for creativity! So let loose any expectations or restrictions and enjoy making epic black and white photography. If you are looking for some specific inspiration then why not start with photos taken by other film community members or look through the back catalogue of one of the greats.

Maybe you choose to hunt out excellent local atmosphere on your local walks; maybe you set up a posed portrait with your family; or something else entirely!

We only ask that the photo was taken on Kodak Tri-X - 35mm, 120, large format or some personal adaptation - and that you own the rights to the image.

You can enter as many photos as you wish - from previous rolls, from past years or taken specially for the competition.

The winner will be chosen by a representative of Kodak Alaris in March after the competition closes and will receive a giant goodie bag of Kodak film!


Save on Kodak Tri-X film

To help you experiment and enjoy shooting Tri-X, we are lowering prices across all Kodak Tri-X formats for the duration of the competition! So pick the roll for your favourite film camera and start shooting 📸
