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!

    I enter a lot of competitions online, so the Instax Mini 90 would be a great way to get my pics fast !

  • Katie K.

    I want to use the Instax Mini to capture all my happiest moments. Things like special events, birthdays, or just whenever the day feels right. To physically have the photo right after it was taken is much more meaningful than finally capturing that posed moment from a digital machine. I have many photos that are nothing but a file on my computer or usb drive. A photo should be more than that. Like the saying “A picture is worth a thousand words”, I want to use this camera for this very purpose.

  • Alex Tuffnell

    i would use the fuji instax to docoment my surf travels and good times into creative art pieces to hang around the humble home or give to friends or family as gifts to share the love of instants yew.

  • René Kautzsch

    I want to use it, to sometimes lay down the medium format film camera and just take photos with it, without bothering a lot about settings.
    The second idea is a project that’s on my mind for a longer time. Going for street phtotography with an instant camera and giving the photos to the subject without copying or scanning it before…

  • Palervo

    I would just use it for fun.

  • Benny Wirawan

    Thinking of scrapbooking with these. gonna be fun :D.

  • Mirella Santana

    I would use it on my travels. There are many people around the world who do not own a photo of themselves. So what better way of saying “thank you” for letting me photograph you then giving them a photo of them. After i’ve taken their photo with my DSRL. The look on their faces. Priceless.

  • Alecio J Evangelista

    I have a plan on doing a 365 project only with instant photos here in Los Angeles and I will it’s the camera to start that project which I will focus in the city of Los Angeles and their characters.

  • Erika Weierick

    I’d use it towards putting together my graduating portfolio in March. I’m almost finished at getting my Associates Degree of science in photography. And using the mini I could document some of the last steps and the big day of showing off my work and what I’ve worked hard for. Facebook ID: itsanerika213

  • Devon Rogers

    I would use this to help find my style and what I love to photograph being a photography student.
    I think it would be a great tool to push me to do a 365!

  • Qtziris

    I would use it to teach my son the beauty of photography

  • enero

    I would sell it on eBay! Nah, I would use the hell out of it, I’ve been getting a lot of requests for more Polaroids type series’s. This lil pup would help with that!

  • Sarah Berry

    I would use this as a stylistic/thematic element in a short film :)

  • Ryan M

    Instant film cameras are so much fun! I would love to have one just for everyday use because I feel that these cameras really are the best for candid photography.

  • Sarah Berry


  • Carol Lynn

    I would use this to take better pictures of the animals up for adoption at the Animal Foundation in Las Vegas – the pictures taken are not very good – perhaps this would mean more furry friends adopted!

  • Carol Lynn

    I follow on Facebook – Carol Lynn

  • Mark Nakib

    I’d use this as a candid camera for weddings and events but also family gatherings, going out with friends, etc. Perfect blend of work and play camera!

  • meg.

    I would use it at the office everyday & join together my work and my love for photography!

  • Skip Waddles

    i love you guys and want free things. I would like these two to be fulfilled simultaneously so I can bathe myself in insta-polaroids.

  • Nica Chonn

    Ahhh I would really love to win this camera! I’ve been eyeing it up for a while!

  • Skip Waddles

    And my facebook alterego would likely use it to capture people on the street, have them sign it, and ask them to keep the photo as a memory of the exact moment we met.

  • Ken Lee

    I would use this to meet more people

  • szfofa

    In high school I became very good friends with a German exchange student, we’ve kept in touch over the years. 2 years ago I got to visit him because I was in Europe for other reasons but the timing was so poor that it was for only a couple days because his school was starting back up. We always talked about taking a road trip together. This April I’m happy to say that the timing is right and we will be taking his van on a trip down to Croatia. I think this Fuji Instax would be an amazing side kick to have on the trip and remember a great trip with a great friend.

  • themarsupial

    My high school yearbooks are full of sticker photos I took back in the day with my beloved Polaroid iZone camera. I would love to win the Fuji Instax Mini 90 and film to recreate some updated versions of those shots at a future reunion.
