Giveaway: Win a Fuji Instax Mini 90 Instant Camera and Twenty Packs of Film!

Update: This giveaway is now over. The winner has been announced at the end of this post.


Alright ladies and gentlemen, it’s time for the first of MANY giveaways this year (yes, many, so stick around), and we thought we’d start 2014 off with something fun: a Fujifilm Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic instant camera and twenty 20-count packs of film to keep you shooting all year long!

If you’re not familiar with the Instax Mini 90, it’s one of Fuji’s most popular instant cameras and was a big hit when we reviewed it earlier this month. Whether you’re a photo enthusiast who just likes taking pictures, or a professional who likes to put away your D4 or 1DX and slum it on occasion, the Mini 90 offers a glorious return to the world of instant photography.

And since a lot of people seem to feel that the price of film is a prohibitory part of the instant camera deal, we’re throwing in twenty 20-count packs of Instax Mini film. That’s 400 pictures, enough for a 365 project and then some!


Entering is Easy

We’ve heard your feedback loud and clear, and you no longer need to have a Facebook account to enter. Just drop us a line in the comments letting us know how you intend to put the Instax Mini to good use. If you DO like our Facebook page, you’ll get a bonus entry! Just include ANOTHER comment with your personalized Facebook ID only (e.g. for the ID is petapixel).

And that’s it! We’ll take entries all the way from the moment this post goes live until Friday January 31st at midnight Easter Standard Time. (Note: Please don’t comment more than once — or twice if you get a bonus entry for liking our Facebook page — or we’ll have to disqualify you from the drawing).

Remember, the contest ends on Friday January 31st at midnight Eastern Standard Time, so get your entries in before that and we’ll update this post with the randomly selected winner’s name once the contest is over!

Also, this giveaway is open to everyone — the camera can be shipped abroad if you’re an international reader outside the United States.

Good luck and thank you so much for reading PetaPixel!

Update: This giveaway is now over. We received almost 3,000 entries! The randomly selected winner is:

    :), I liked your facebook also!!! With that many cartridges, a series of strangers downtown with horse masks in their natural environments would be so amazing. I have three empty walls to fill strangers with horse masks……:P…Ima call the series, “Are we Horses or are we Dancers.”

    Because frankly, i think people have inner stallions and mustangs. We steadily lose ourselves in our coordinated choreography of life. Not a bad thing, but must not forgot the peacefulness of sometimes breaking free from the stage to graze on a vast grass field with no boundaries or fences to limit our inner growth.

    In case of the judges being females, i will leave a picture of a seductive kitten in hope of swaying their vote. And for the guys, a picture of Olivia Wilde stretching.

    Do an old vs new project, taking instant photos of places and then later on holding the instant photo in front of the scene and taking a photo of it. Already liked your facebook page

  • William

    I really would love to have the opportunity to win this for my dad. He is a life long lover of photography and the arts. I can’t think of a single day where he hasn’t at least tried to show me something photo related. The beauty of his undying love for the art of capturing photons on a photon receptor inside of a dark box is that he is not just set on one style or method of capturing an image. All forms are welcome. My father loves everything from Nicephore Neipce, all the way up to HDR. That being said, I know he will appreciate this beautiful camera which has such good heritage, I mean come on, it’s a Fuji! He will make timeless cameos to be shared with the world. He won’t let you down, and in my humble opinion, there is no better candidate.
    Thank you,

  • Mark

    I would just use this to have fun. Everyone loves instant film.

  • Michael Rasmussen

    This is the best thing I’ve heard of since the SX70 SE.
    Remeber? You mailed in your “failed” photos to Polaroid and got vouchers for replacment film at a 1:1 ratio.

    Looking forward to documenting artists’ work

  • Andrew G

    Will post on here with original thoughts on FB: This
    would bring me back at an old camera we used to have where each picture
    has to be perfect and came out naturally stunning. I would use it when I
    travel to different states to take pictures of landscapes, monuments,
    angles of the sun and moon rising… reflecting on the surface of the
    water or nature. Would add to my album which is collecting dust.

    I would most definitely use this camera to capture those great moments at parties and such, I mean of course I could use a smart phone, but what happens when I lose that phone ? I lose all the memories within it. This camera would make it much easier to scrapbook too, no more running to the store to print my photos, I could print it right then and there

    I would absolutely love to have this camera for the wedding guest book album my fiancé and I have decided to create for our nuptials. I’ve always loved instant film cameras but it wasn’t until recently that I have become determined to add one to my camera collection. Once I started researching I came across this beauty and I’ve been smitten ever since.

  • Irene

    I’ll be going to Burma this year to visit family and would love to capture those candid moments!

  • Kelly

    This would be a great way to document my family living with an incurable cancer with the hope of giving strength and courage to others in similar situations.
