Soho Photo Gallery in New York City has announced a call for entries into the 20th Annual International Krappy Kamera Competition. 

About the Competition:

Soho Photo Gallery, New York City’s longest running cooperative photography gallery and the originator of the Krappy Kamera Competition is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Competition and is looking for extraordinary photographs made with lousy lenses. Examples of some Krappy Kameras are the Holga, Diana, Ansco, and pinhole cameras. You can create your own Krappy Kamera by using your non-Krappy Kamera (e.g. 4×5, SLR, DSLR) and exchanging the lens with a Krappy Lens (e.g. pinhole body cap or Holga-type lens). Cell phones, disposables and point and shoot cameras are ineligible. Remember, just because a camera is old and moldy doesn’t make it Krappy. The lens is the determining factor.

The Juror:

Sandra Carrion originated the Krappy Kamera Competition. A former
president of Soho Photo, she is a founding member of fotofoto gallery as well as the Image Factory Experimental Photography Workshops. Carrion teaches at Nassau Community College. Her photography has been recognized for its innovation and artistry.
Eligibility:

The competition is open to all photographers age 18 years old or older, excluding members of Soho Photo Gallery.

Awards:

The first place award is $500, 2nd and 3rd place awards and three Honorable Mentions are provided by the sponsors. In addition a People’s Choice award will be given by Soho Photo Gallery.
The deadline for entries is January 8, 2018 and winners will be exhibited March 7-March 24, 2018. For more information or to enter the competition visit Soho Photo Gallery
