Show us your work

Share below. We'll host photos here between Fall 2011 and Fall 2012 when we'll curate a community-based gallery show at Ace Hotel New York from these submissions. Some contact information will help us reach you to let you know if your shots have been selected for the show.

We trust that you're using analog instant film slides and not uploading digital photos from your phone or otherwise — if we pick your shot for the gallery, we'll ask you to send the real, actual photograph to us in the real, actual mail. We accept scanned slides with real borders — if your photo is cropped, you'll be contacted to resubmit an uncropped version. Keep in mind that photos are edited only for truly offensive or inappropriate content. But we're pretty open-minded.

Please read and agree to our Terms and Conditions.

What we are looking for: A photo by you, owned by you. Medium resolution instant film photographs, cropped as close to the edge of the frame (not the image itself) as possible, to remove scanner background. We accept jpgs, pngs, tiff, gif and bmp files. Submissions should be 72dpi and a minimum of 800px wide. If your photo is chosen for the Fall 2012 gallery show, we'll contact you for the real thing.
