News from around the world...

Lee Kid has made and released a coffee table e-book, filled with photos submitted by all of you guys from the Instagram film community! The book includes a range of kindly donated images alongside stories about each photographers passion for photography. Take a look at the book here, and donate on Lee's just giving page.

2. JFR Film
Our good friend Josh Richardson has just launched a brand new website, selling second hand, tried and tested film cameras!
To celebrate the launch of his new website, he is running a competition where you can win 5x rolls of expired film and 1x free roll of dev and scan by us! To enter, head over to Josh's Instagram @jfr.film and simply follow him, submit your favourite photo that you have taken on expired film, and tag a friend in the comments here.
There is no set theme for this competition, the only rule is that you must have taken the photo on film that has expired! If you've never shot on expired film there is plenty of time to pick up a roll of film from his website!
This competition will run until the 14th of April and the winner will be chosen by us!
Finally, if you're looking to buy a camera from Josh, you will also get 15% off your next dev and scan order from us too!
3. Street Candy films
A quick call out to our community, Street Candy, who sell their own brand of BW film, have released a statement to say they are struggling, and could do with all the help they can get.
Like us, they are very eco-conscious, and became the very first company to offer an alternative to plastic film containers by using recycled cardboard tubes for their stock back in 2020!
We are super passionate about supporting small businesses, especially those with similar sustainability passions, so wanted to put a message out to you guys... if you are looking to buy some BW film any time soon, why not check out their website!?
