FUJIFILM LAUNCHES INSTAX 200 INSTANT FILM PHOTO CONTEST ON FACEBOOK

Superhero Inspired Fujifilm Instax 200 Photo Submissions Now Being Accepted

Valhalla NY, June 1, 2009 – FUJIFILM U.S.A., Inc. today announced the launch of its Fujifilm Instax Superhero Photo Contest which is being hosted on the popular social networking site, Facebook. Photographers from amateur to professional level can submit up to three Instax 200 instant photos reflective of the superhero theme. Photos must be taken with a Fujifilm Instax 200 camera, scanned and posted on the Fujifilm Instax Facebook Page.

“Since Fujifilm announced the availability of the Instax 200 Instant Camera System to the United States late last year, we have had an overwhelmingly positive response from instant film enthusiasts,” said Kayce Baker, director of trade marketing, Imaging Division, FUJIFILM U.S.A, Inc. “With the increased popularity of photo sharing on social networking sites, we thought it made perfect sense to host the contest on Facebook, making it convenient and easy for contestants to participate and post their photos, and for judges and fans to view them.”

“Fans” of Fujifilm Instax on Facebook will be able to cast their votes for their favorite photo until the competition is narrowed down to five finalists. Then, a panel of pro photographer judges will select the winning Instax superhero-themed photo.

Open now through June 30, photographers interested in entering the Fujifilm Instax Superhero Photo Contest should go to the Fujifilm Instax Page on Facebook for complete contest details:
