Soho Photo Gallery of New York City is proud to announce an exciting opportunity for photographers. The Fifteenth International “Krappy Kamera” Competition. This contest is open to artists 18 and over and must comply with rules outlined in our prospectus.

The Krappy Kamera concept was born in 1992 at the Soho Photo Gallery® during a regular monthly opening reception when a few members admitted they preferred using their junky cameras to their high-end ones. One of the members, Sandra Carrion, proposed organizing an exhibit opportunity for other gallery members and the rest is history: we’ve held the members’ Krappy Kamera exhibition every year since then.

What defines Krappy most?
As stated in the competions prospectus, our philosophy at Soho Photo is simple: In the hands of an artist, great photographs can be made with minimal equipment. We will be searching for extraordinary photographs produced with cameras with lousy lenses. Artists are encouraged to explore this medium and let the creative juices flow while shooting and in the darkroom (wet or digital).

Remember, it’s the Krappy Kamera Competition—not the Krappy print competition.
We look forward to receiving entries from across the U.S. and abroad. Sponsorship from Freestyle Photographic, Fujifilm, Holga.
