What is a Krappy Kamera.  
Our philosophy at Soho Photo Gallery is that in the hands of any artist great photographs can be made with basic equipment.  To explore this talent, we are searching for extraordinary photographs made with lousy lenses. Examples of some Krappy Kameras are the Holga, Diana, Ansco, and pinhole cameras. You can also create your own Krappy Kamera by using your non-Krappy Kamera (e.g. 4x5, 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.

Winning Photographs must be framed and wired for hanging.  Maximum height or width (including frame) for exhibited work cannot exceed 48 inches.  Packing and delivery instructions will be emailed to winners.  Photographs not suitably prepared will be excluded.

Application Requirements

There is no limitation as to subject matter.

Eligibility Criteria

The competition is open to all photographers 18 years and older, excluding members of the Soho Photo gallery.
