Call for Polaroid Sumbmissions

Organization Name: Northwest Film Forum / Photographic Center Northwest

Organization Location: Seattle, WA

Type: Calls & Submissions


To accompany our July 19–25 screening run of Instant Dreams, a documentary on the chemistry, community, and legacy of Polaroid photography that we’re copresenting with Photographic Center Northwest (PCNW), we’re inviting local photographers to contribute their instant film photography work to a monthlong group gallery show this July in NWFF’s Stairwell Gallery. If anybody you know works in this medium, whether as an amateur/hobbyist or in a professional capacity, please share this email with them!

Selected photographers may submit up to 5 photos of any instant film stock (Type 600, Instax, Type 100 packfilm; anything goes!). Digital submissions of scanned instant prints will also be accepted, and will loop on the adjacent monitor in the gallery. Email Communications Manager Paul Siple and Executive Director Vivian Hua at and with any questions about the show or submission process! The submission period will remain open through the end of June.

No honorarium will be awarded to featured photographers, but each will receive free admission to a screening of Instant Dreams of their choice, and artists are welcome to post their contact info in the gallery for potential sales.

Thank you for sharing, and if you have any questions, just call our office at 206-329-2629 and ask for Vivian!
