This month, we’re celebrating instant photography as a tool for boundless creativity and self-expression. Whether you’re a seasoned professional, a casual perfectionist, or someone who shoots first and thinks later, instant photography is your chance to create Art for Everybody. Submit one Impossible instant photograph that captures what self-expression means to you to win some exciting prizes: from celebrating the spirit of creative collaboration, to embracing the deconstruction of the final image. Read on and find out how to enter.

Instant photography takes split-second moments and everyday experiences, and turns them into something you can keep and share with the world around you. Place a party in a vibrant palette, or turn a still life scene into an abstract work of art. Whatever you create, make it all your own. Your photo doesn’t have to be perfect to be meaningful and special, but if you take it in a special place, allowing yourself the time to be creative, then you’ll still be looking at it decades from now. To get you inspired, click on the images below to re-visit some of our favorite features from the Impossible community.
HOW TO ENTER
To submit to our competition you must use an existing Impossible photo or take a new one. Upload your Impossible photo to Instagram and tag your post with the #artforeverybody to be entered into our prize draw. If you don’t have an Instagram account you can e-mail your photo to us instead via [email protected] using #artforeverybody in the headline of your mail. You can add the # to as many photos as you like but we will only enter each person once into the prize draw to make it fair. You can add the hashtag to an existing Impossible photo on your feed too, if you prefer.
