Welcome to the best of #NEOPANTASTIC May 2017. As selected by myself and the party’s moderation/judging panel (details in the NEOPANTASTIC Twitter bio. Speaking of which, hats off to the team for doing such a great job spreading the word and helping to build discussion and conversation over the course of the month the party ran this year. It felt like we had been going for months (in the best possible sense!)

We had a little over 272 entries over the course of shoot week and to say that the quality of submissions was high is a bit of an understatement. Each of the 28 photographs you see below was selected as an example of what the panel and I deemed to be the best representations of the capability, beauty and “look” of Fuji NEOPAN, as we all of course, the individual merits of the photographs themselves.

A voting form has been provided at the foot of this page for you to cast your votes for your favorite of the 28, and voting is open until Sunday June 18th. At this point, your votes will be collated and a winner announced.

Here we go.

  1. Loved the choices, regretted that we can choose ONLY one favorite. I loved a couple. I flipped a coin over choosing between a couple of them, and then lost track.

    I like double exposures, camera-shy father-in-laws and all the water shots. It’s not fair.

    I’ve just begun to use Neopan almost exclusively, so this excites me a lot.

  2. @Grumpyfck some great stuff in there and thank goodness for @moerkrum repn’ the portraits!

  3. Congratulations to all who participated. So many fantastic Neopantastic pictures. This is going to be a really tough to vote.

  4. This was a very strong field of photos, even the ones not in the shortlist. I had blast and Neopan Acros 100 is prob my fav 100 speed film. Honored to be amongst this group of shots selected. Thank you!
