The Great FPP Kodak Film Giveaway!


FPP Film Giveaway @ Mid-West Meet Up


If there's one thing that FPP likes to do it's to give away film!

Since The Film Photography Podcast's inception back in 2009, film giveaways have been constant.

A majority of film requests have come from students and many times film was supplemented with entire 35mm SLR packages!

First giveaway batches of giveaway film were from my own personal stash and soon after our first episodes an amazing thing happened, listeners starting donating!

In 2011 Kodak got involved with our first Portra giveaway in Summer 2011 followed by their generous donation of fresh film in October 2011 and a massive batch of expired film in December 2011.

We'll it's almost March 2012 and that means all the entry forms are in and we've started the intensive shipping process.

So, if you ever entered out giveaway contest there's a good chance you'll be getting a package in the mail soon.


The Great FPP Kodak Film Giveaway!


Sadly, our request for film massively outnumbers our film supply so it's all being sent out on a the first-come, first serve rule.

Happy shooting!

Thanks to Eastman Kodak and our amazing podcast listeners who support the FPP by donating!

I would like to be eligible for the film give away. I have been a dedicated film photographer for many years. My best and fanciest work is on film! Does it help that it's my birthday tomorrow? Slow speed e-6 or very high speed c-41 would be nice. Thanks!

Wow! These are GREAT news! Hope I'll win some of this film! :D
Don't stop the great work and I wanted to thank you because you helped me to have the guts to build my own darkroom and do some black and white processing! I even do some for my friends! Thank you FPP!

Holy sh*t Mike. This is a fantastic article on two fronts, the first being that you used my photograph (hehe... just kidding). And the second is just how truly amazing the FPP community really is. You guys not only re-juvinated my love of Polaroid, but of photography as a whole.

You guys really are the best. AND should you decide to send me some 120 E6... I could test the power of 6x9 chromes with my brand new-old Fuji "Texas Leica" rangefinder. Then you'd be even more awesomer. Thank you for keeping us crazy film shooters motivated and entertained!
