The Analogue Project is a submission-based competition, with one rule: all portraits submitted must have been made using film, not digital cameras.

The 2015 Analogue Portrait Project will open for submissions on February 18th. 


AESTHESIA STUDIOS is proud to announce, in partnership with Month of Photography Los Angeles, The Analogue Project 2015: a photography contest designed to re-inspire by embracing what captured many a photographer's creative eye to begin with—shooting on film.
An impressive panel that encompasses the artistic, commercial and publishing aspects of the industry will judge the submissions. The contest culminates with an artist’s reception and exhibition at one of LA’s top creative studios, hosted by MOPLA and AESTHESIA STUDIOS. This is an amazing forum for shooters to showcase their work and have some creative fun.
We’re eager to once again engage one of the largest photographic communities in the world with our 2nd annual photo contest—one that keeps the use of film in our photographic vernacular.
This year we want to see where your creativity meets your next job by offering two submission categories: Portrait and Product, with each demanding a creatively commercial flair.  We’re excited to see what extraordinary expressions our contest inspires.
It’s going to happen fast so get out there and create some jaw-dropping images!

Entry fee $15 per image. Max 5 images per entrant
Images must be Analogue capture.

Work will be juried by
Sabrina Baja – Senior Art Producer, Sunny and 72

Cat Jimenez – Executive Director, Lucie Foundation & Co-Founder MOPLA
