Would you like a free Holga camera?...




And what if that Holga camera included a world wide project with other photographers taking and sharing their images, would that interest you?

If you said yes then do I have a deal for you!

I have a brand new Holga camera that I am going to send (for free) to one of our readers and Ted Forbes has saved one seat in "The Holga Project" for the reader who wins our Holga camera.

How cool is that?

Ted is a photographer and also publishes The Art of Photography, a great place to go if you are looking to improve your skills. You will find his podcast, a photography master class, a boat load of tutorials and DIY projects. The Art of Photography should be added to your bookmarks.

This is going to be real simple contest, all you need to do is leave a comment on any post on our blog or YouTube channel, that's it. You can leave as many comments as you like, each comment will be one contest entry.

You have until Thursday November 10th to post your comment and get your entry in. The winner will be drawn (randomly) from all entries and announced the following day.

But it's not just about winning, it will also be about following through, because Ted has been so kind to save us a seat and I would hate to see it go "unused".

You can learn more about The Holga Project here and here, then come back and start leaving your comment(s).

In closing I want to leave you with this video, it shows the kind of images a Holga will produce as well as what needs to do be done to your camera before you start taking photographs.

(those receiving this post via email will need to return to the blog to watch this video)

Winning the camera & participating in the Holga Project would be cool, but I'm really excited about finding this new site! I'm liking what I've seen in just a few minutes scanning the site & am particularly interested in the Masterclass series. I've really needed something like this so THANKS!!

Whoa, looks like a pretty cool project. Do you know if all of the images will be shown after all of the cameras are sent in? I'd be interested in seeing what comes out of this. Thanks for sharing!

This does look interesting. Might just pick up one of those cameras anyway and tinker. I use a "retro camera" app on my phone and it produces images like that...cool.

A great way to compile a unique set of pictures for a book. It would be fun to see what everyone finds picture-worthy and decides to shoot for their 4 shots.

Winning this camera / contest would be awesome. A great chance to leave the inner city and shoot something different. Thanks for the chance guys.

The Holga project sounds interesting and it would be fun to participate in it. Getting a free Holga would be a welcome edition to my photography gear. Thanks for running this contest.
