Your summer selfies = prizes in our new competition!

You might have noticed that summer’s here. We certainly have. What does that mean? Long, hot days at the beach. Colorful pool parties. A drive down the coast with the windows down. And a sweet, cold ice cream cone to top it all off.

Ah, summertime.

Whatever you’re doing this summer, or wherever you go, your Polaroid camera can come too. (Don’t forget the film, either). BBQs with your besties. Amusement parks with the fam. Tropical destinations with bae. The light is amazing, everyone is happy, and your camera is there, ready to take it all in. Doesn’t get any better than that.

Do you know what else happens in the summer? (Besides hot dogs and Pride, we mean.) That’s right: National Selfie Day. And we all know that selfies aren’t just for Millenials anymore. 

So here’s your mission that kicks off June 21st: take a selfie of you and your vintage Polaroid or OneStep 2 camera getting into those summer vibes. Tell us where you are, or where you’re about to go. Or just tell us what you love about summer and how you’ll be spending it.

The photo can be shot on your smartphone camera, your digital camera, or your Polaroid camera. It can be shot on any camera you want, in fact, just as long as it has both you and your favorite Polaroid camera in it. And whatever you do, make sure you use the hashtag #SummerofPolaroid to officially enter your photo in the competition.  

We’ll pick 6 finalists from all the awesome submissions, and you’ll get to vote on your favorite during the first week of July via our Instagram account.

The selfie with the most likes will win a OneStep 2 camera and a triple pack of our Summer Frames film (that means one Deep Sea Dive, one Tropics, and one Ice Cream Pastels edition).

Pretty sweet, right? So what are you waiting for… Ready. Set. Selfie!

Additional T&Cs:
Please only choose 1 social media channel for your entry and set the visibility of the post to public so we can see the entry. Multiple entries are not encouraged. If you enter multiple images, we will consider your submission to be the first image you post under the hashtag. Entries allowed via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. If you don’t have social media, you send your entry via email to social@polaroidoriginals.com with #SummerOfPolaroid as the subject line. Competition closes at Midnight CET, 30th June, 2018.
Good luck!
