The Somerville Toy Camera Festival seeks entries for its sixth annual celebration of toy and lo-fi photography.

Images of any subject matter, made with a “toy” camera – any low-tech camera with no or very limited exposure control, such as pinhole, Holga, Diana/Diana clones, Brownie, Ansco, disposable cameras – are eligible. The key criteria are plastic lenses and a lack of reliable exposure control. Straight Polaroid-type images, or images made with cell phones, digital cameras, or film cameras with full exposure control (such as the Lomo LC series), will not be considered.

Deadline for submission: June 24, 2018
Photographers will be notified by: July 20 2018
Selected work must be received by: August 31, 2018

All shows will open in September 2018. Gallery-specific opening dates and related events to be announced. The final placement of work will be decided by the organizing committee. Accepted pieces must be delivered to the respective gallery framed and wired for hanging. Artists are responsible for cost of shipping to and from the gallery.
