Still Got It: What Polaroid picture would you put in your time capsule?

This competition is now closed.

Congrats to winner @tc_polaroids, and runners-up @polaroid.ampi, @mssmadison and @msantanaphoto.

Originals never get old. Like the love between your grandparents, still going strong. The photo you have of your best friend where she’s laughing, and still missing a tooth. Or your aunt’s impeccable style, still unchanged since the summer of ‘69. Read on to find out how you can win a OneStep 2 camera by creating your own Polaroid Time Capsule.

Polaroid pictures were there way back when, and they’ll be here ‘til the end. They help every generation, Boomers to Founders, put their lives in the world’s most iconic frame.

So here’s what we want you to do. Take a Polaroid portrait of a someone (or a few someones, or yourself) that defines the here-and-now, the year 2018, for you. It could include a distinct fashion choice. Or your favorite pose. Maybe it’s even in a special place.

Create the image that you will look at in 10 years, or 20, or more, and think: “Damn. We had it then. And we still got it.”

Then share it on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook with the hashtag #PolaroidTimeCapsule for the chance to win a big bundle of Polaroid swag, including a OneStep 2 camera and film. Plus, we’ll splash your image all over our own feeds.

Competition doesn’t close until end of May, so you’ve got plenty of time to get out there and create an original. 1 lucky winner will receive a OneStep 2 camera (as modeled below by glamour nanna Baddie Winkle), film, a t-shirt and a tote bag. 3 runners-up will receive Polaroid Originals film and a tote bag.
