Calling all Canadian Impossible Film shooters, show us your Impossible view! Beginning now, we are gathering entries for our second Impossible Project photography exhibition..
The exhibition will be held at Science World from April 6th until May 10th, with an opening reception on April 8th from 6-8pm. Because of the family oriented audience at Science World, we ask that the subject matter be appropriate for all ages. Science World reserves the right to refuse any photos they feel are not appropriate for the space. If you are unsure about an image and would really like to include it, contact us and we can have it pre-screened prior to hanging the show. Please be aware that this show will be on display in a high traffic area, and while we do not anticipate any issues, and there have not been issues in the past at this venue, there is the possibility that photos could be damaged or stolen.
Submissions can be dropped off at Beau Photo Supplies or can be mailed in to Beau. Each person will have from one to three images included in the show, and a selection of entries will be chosen for framing and exhibition style hanging. Prizes will be awarded in the following categories:
• Impossible Project Instant Lab photo
• Impossible Project camera photo
• Mixed media using Impossible Project film emulsion
• Judge's choice image
Submissions must be received by 5pm Monday, March 30th 2015.
Submissions are restricted to images produced with Impossible Project film only; any Impossible format will be accepted. Emulsion lifts or mixed media that include the original photograph are permitted. Digital reproductions of Impossible Project film images will not be accepted.
Only original photos mailed in or dropped off to Beau Photo will be accepted for the contest and exhibition.
Submissions are open to Canadian residents only.
If you would like original photos returned, please include a self addressed envelope with sufficient postage with your submission. Photos can also be picked up from Beau Photo Supplies after the show. Any photos left for more than two months after the closing of the show will become the property of Beau Photo.
An entry fee of $15.00 + GST for one to three photos applies. If you wish to mail your submission, you can call Nicole at Beau Photo to make a credit card payment over the phone. The payment will be processed when the photos arrive at the shop. Alternately, you can include a money order for $15.75 which includes GST with your submission.
Please note: submission fees are non-refundable.

Beau Photo is not responsible for damage or loss of artwork while in transit or on display. By submitting your work you agree to allow your images to be used for promotional purposes for the show/contest.
Photographs that are selected to be framed, and the best in show and other awards will be determined by a three person jury consisting of one representative from Beau Photo Supplies, one representative from Science World and an artist from our community. More details about prizes will be announced as they become available.
If you don't have a Polaroid camera, there is a good selection of used cameras for sale at Beau. Afraid to commit? You can rent a camera for two days for free with the purchase of a pack of Impossible film and payment of the submission fee. Contact Nicole at Beau for more information or to reserve a camera.
