Great Faces

The October Gallery competition

"It's one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it's another thing to make a portrait of who they are." – Paul Caponigro

The 80 years written in the lines of your grandmother’s face. An old friend laughing so much she’s crying. Someone you’ve never met staring intently towards the horizon. For this month’s competition we want photos of great faces. From close-ups to group portraits, street photographs to studio shoots, it’s up to you.

Some say a portrait is as much about the photographer as it is their subject. So choose your moment carefully – you’ve a vital role to play in capturing the feeling, and helping that face tell its story. The film itself will help you. There’s a depth to analog instant photographs that suits portraits: the film’s unique chemistry brings faces to life.

You’re free to enter as many photos as you like. Scan and upload to the Gallery from your iOS or Android device using the free Impossible Project App, or use your computer. Whatever you upload, it has to be shot on Impossible film to be eligible.

The competition closes at 11.59pm (CET) on Friday 30 October, 2015. If your photo is judged in the top three you’ll get a voucher worth 50 EUR/USD/GBP to spend in our shop.
