The Impossible giveaway…

The day has arrived that I can announce some very exciting news that I have been bursting to tell you all for the last few months.

I was contacted by The Impossible Project regarding my Polaroid inspired prints and the possibility of selling them in their New York store. I was extremely excited about the prospect and incredibly flattered. This then evolved into the idea of doing an exclusive Impossible version and here it is.

If you haven’t heard of The Impossible Project (then where have you been!?) they are the team of people who in 2008 saved the very last Polaroid production plant for integral instant film in Enschede (NL) and started to invent and produce totally new instant film materials for traditional Polaroid cameras. In 2010 Impossible saved analog instant photography from extinction by releasing various brand new and unique instant films. By doing so more than 300,000,000 perfectly functioning Polaroid cameras were saved from becoming obsolete.

The print is now available for $75 in their New York store in SoHo but if you can’t make it there and would like one then this could be your lucky day because…yes…we are giving one away!

All you have to do is leave a comment and then one very lucky winner will be randomly chosen. Closing time and date is 4 pm Friday 24th June 2011 (UK time) and the winner will be announced shortly afterwards. International comments are welcome.

Comments are moderated so it may take a while for them to appear. If you are anonymous then please leave a name in your comment.

Good luck everyone!

UPDATE! This giveaway has now ended and the winner will be announced very soon!
