Giveaway update!

When I announced the final days of our contest on FaceBook this past Friday, I received an e-mail from Film Photography Podcast Listener Ron O’Connor. Ron just kicked in some vintage measuring cups/beakers, a vintage thermometer and “Pako” film clips.

FPP listeners are THE BEST!!!

Here’s the original post from Friday (giveaway items updated)

When we announced our camera and home development contest last month on The Film Photography Podcast, I had no idea that it bound to become our most spectacular giveaway yet.

The contest was initiated when podcast listener HeeSoo donated a package containing a vintage Ciro-Flex 120 TLR camera, 120 film and Rodinal-Equiv home developer.

A few days later, I received an e-mail from another FPP listener. Keith Derickson noticed our contest and donated the film development tank that’s needed for the home development process.

I tipped off our good friends at Freestyle Photographic Supply about our ongoing contest and they donated the rest of the chemicals to develop film at home.

This has turned out to be our biggest contest to date!

One winner will be chosen and announced on the Episode 27 / February 1, 2011 Film Photography Podcast Internet Radio Show
