Please read below a few things to consider in relation to contributing to the IC project.

( 1 )
Download, print and read through the Indisposable Concept Info Pack to familiarise yourself with the world of Indisposable Concept.

( 2 )
Use your film camera to shoot photos of the world around you. (All rolls and contributions must be shot with a film camera). Capture things in your life that tell a story – your journey to work, your cooking class at night, your trip to the supermarket, your dog, your kids, your road trip or holiday. Capture anything and everything that you perceive as unique to your world and want to share with the IC family. It’s totally up to you to capture the world you live in. It’s your interpretation.

( 3 )
You have 1 roll of film (from a film camera), 24(ish) shots and roughly 1 week to work with. It’s ok if your roll of film has more than 24 exposures and the roll takes longer then a week to complete. Don’t get too caught up in the technicalities. Just have fun!

Please submit the complete roll to us so we can create your online gallery at indisposableconcept.com. Do not send us selects from the roll. We do not feature individual photos that are sent through to us and do not share photos on social media via a hashtag system. We pride ourselves on the process and featuring complete rolls to show the entire scope of a roll, not just hero shots.

The 1 roll of film, 24 shots and 1 week platform is only a rough guide to work within. Just have fun and enjoy the process of playing with film. You can shoot the roll in an hour or a day or take a month to complete it, we’re not too worried about the technicalities when it comes to time frame. We just want you to get creative and acknowledge the world you live in and share it with the IC fam.

( 4 )
One of the photos you take on the roll must be a selfie.

( 5 )
You must take all the shots yourself or direct someone to take the shot. This is your view of the world.

( 6 )
Please provide us with your details when you send through your photos. Details we require are:
– Age
– Location (where the roll was shot)
– Instagram / Website details (Include any online details you’d like to feature with your roll)
– Type of film camera used
– Type of film used

( 7 )
We do not process rolls anymore. To contribute to the project you must get the film developed yourself and send the digital files to us (available on disk or as digital files when you get the film processed by a film lab of your choice). Please send your files to indisposableconcept@gmail.com via wetransfer.com

We will not accept rolls sent to to us as photos attached to emails. Please send complete rolls to us via wetransfer.com which is free and easy to use. This makes our life easier when downloading and processing rolls.

( 8 )
Don’t hesitate to contact us at any stage via email if you have any questions or would like clarification on anything. We want to make this experience as fun and easy as possible. Contact details are located on the About section of the site.

__________________________________________________________________________________________

On the 2nd August 2018 Indisposable Concept made the decision to change the basic fundamentals of the project. After nearly six years of being purely disposable camera focused the project opened its doors to accept contributions and rolls shot with all types of film cameras. Please read statement below released 2nd August, 2018.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

Hi my name is Stu and I’m the founder of Indisposable Concept.

Today, the 2nd of August 2018 is my mum’s birthday, she would have turned 70 today if we hadn’t lost her in November 2009 to cancer. She was a strong and fierce woman that raised three children and instilled in each of us the determination and strength to create our own paths and fight for what we believe in. She taught us the importance of love and family and looking out for one another. She showed me how to care for others and believe in myself and to value the time I have on this earth whilst respecting the gift of just being here.

It is with joy that I take this opportunity to acknowledge on this day the celebration of life and the world we live in, by announcing that moving forward Indisposable Concept will accept contributions from all types of film cameras, not just disposable cameras. After 6 years it’s time to evolve and open the project up to new opportunities and explore a new path. All the same rules still apply to the project but all film is welcome, from all types of film cameras, not just rolls shot with disposable cameras or single use cameras. We will be updating our Info Pack online to reflect these changes. You can download it at indisposableconcept.com.

Although the IC project has been all about shooting film using disposable cameras we are aware of the negative impact one time use plastics have on our environment and the damage it is doing to our earth. We don’t promote or support the use of single use plastics in any shape or form. We personally practice recycling habits in our personal day to day activities and encourage people to recycle and use less disposable plastics when we can.

We’re excited about this change, and hope you join us on this new path.

With love,
IC

  1. You liked one of my Instagram photos I took with a disposable camera and so I eventually ended up here extremely interested in participating! My only question is do I just go to the store and buy a camera then mail it to you in a week or do I let you know when I’m starting/sign up or anything? This project is so cool and I’m really excited to participate! Thanks, Taylor

    • Hey Taylor,thanks so much for getting in contact with us, stoked to hear you want to get involved and shoot a roll! We can’t wait to see what you capture from the unique world you live in. Your week starts whenever you choose, you don’t need to sign up but feel free to email us at indisposableconcept@gmail.com if yo’d like to let us know how the process is going or if you have any questions along the way. You can either post the camera to us or email the digital files through when you get the film developed. Whatever suits you. We’re excited to see what you come back with, be in touch with you soon. Cheers, Indisposable Team 🙂

    • Hey Jim,
      Thanks for stopping by and getting in touch! Totally fine to use a B+W Disposable Camera. We’ve had a guy Joey, contribute a B+W roll and it looks incredible. Can’t wait to see what you capture from the world around you and share it with the Indisposable community. Have a great day! Cheers 🙂

  3. Hi, I’m really excited to start this, it’s such a good idea! Just wondering, if I send you the disposable camera and not the digital version will I get the photos back? Thanks xxx

    • Hi Catherine, great to hear from you, thanks for getting in touch! We’re excited to have you on board. If you send us the camera we will develop and process the film from this end and can send you the digital files so you can print and have a copy for yourself.

  5. This is awesome. I’m definitely participating. I recently found a live for photography and as I am going away for a week it would be the perfect opportunity to contribute. I’m can’t wait!

  6. Hi, I am truly interested in what you guys are doing! I have a question. I have one film roll developed which is taken by a disposable camera, but it doesn’t have any selfie. Can’t I start with this roll to join with you?

  7. Hey i love all the photos i see and have been a follower of the project since the beginning and want to get involved but i dont shoot disposable but film cameras, i was wondering if its possible to become a part of the project using normal rolls of film not just from disposable cameras? 🙂
