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!

    I want to take more private photos. That is, photos that don’t get posted on social networking sites like Facebook or Instagram, but photos that are purely for the sake of capturing the moment. I plan to travel more this year (it’ll be my first time to travel abroad with friends this April, on my 21st birthday) and it’ll also be my last year in college. I want to document these experiences with the Fuji Instax, instead of just another digital camera. The tangibility of each shot somehow captures the fleeting nature of these experiences more accurately. I get one shot at life, and I’d like to shoot it with the Fuji Instax.

    I’d use the camera for everything. I’d probably try to think of the different ways that the photo can be used as a physical object and not just as an image. I think it would be a cool way to get my nephew excited about photography and I’d love being able to share photos with family and friends right away.

    One thing I’ve always liked about photography is that you can make multiple prints from one negative/digital file. I think having only one copy of the photo would make it more precious and it would mean more to give them away.

    Will be great to play with instant camera. Wonder how it was back there in the time of Polaroid.

  • Elijah CowZarific Weerts

    I would give this Polaroid to my dearest friend. We’ve been using our instant prints in many creative ways and we absolutely love sitting and watching them develop and it’s really brought our friendship to a whole new level. She would absolutely adore having her very own Polaroid to go on adventures with and seeing her smiling face when she receives such a gift would be so worth it.

    I would love to document special moments I find everyday in my regular life. And especially take pictures of our little dog :)

    I take photos for fun at sporting events while in the crowd. This camera would be easy to carry and the size is perfect.

    This would be great for participating with the Instant Film Society in Dallas, TX. I would also use it to complete a couple of photography assignments in analog film.

    Singapore is known to be one of the unhappiest countries in the world. Smiling, even forced ones and even for a short while, counters the effects of unhappiness.

    Seeing as most people’s reaction would be to smile when asked for a picture, perhaps my Smile Project (that im already working on right now) will help brighten a few people’s days.

    Twenty packs of film ought to last long enough for me to bring some smiles to some people’s faces.

  • su

    the Most raved instax mini! I would carry it around everyday and take random shots of life !!

  • Janeth Davalos

    I intend to put this instax mini to good use by taking it everywhere with me so I can capture the beauty that surrounds me and hang the photos on my wall for inspiration in my illustrations. I would also use some of the shots to encourage my little cousins to get excited about photography and art because this world of ours needs more of it.

  • pitchertaker

    I would give this to my 8 year old daughter, which I was planning to do for her 1st communion gift in April, anyway. Then I will probably still get one for myelf. :)

  • Zhiting Su

    I would love to win this to document my daily life!

  • Gary S

    I’d obviously use it to document me and my friends filing our taxes.
