Welcome to Indisposable Concept.
Everything you need is in the INFO PACK (hit the link below). Download, print and read through it to find out more about the project and how to get involved.
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.

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.

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.

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

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

Please provide us with your details when you send through your photos. Details we require are:
– 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

To contribute to the project you must get your roll of 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 email@example.com via wetransfer.com.
In the beginning and for many years the IC project was based around people contributing rolls of film from their disposable cameras and posting them to us for processing. We would receive cameras in packages from around the world filled with a disposable camera and letters sharing stories about the experience, their enthusiasm to be involved with the project and excitement to find out what was living on their roll of film. Due to costs and film labs shutting up shop around us we found it hard to continue this unique and beautiful feature of the IC process. Until now.
New lab, new focus, same Indisposable Concept.
We’ve teamed up with our local film legends at Photo Production House Prahran (@pphprahran) who will be helping us bring your world and stories to life.
Simply post your film rolls to PO Box 1235 Windsor VIC AUSTRALIA 3181 with your name, age, location (where you’re from and where you shot the roll) along with your social and online details (Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr, Blog, Website etc) and we’ll take care of the rest. Please include an email address so we can send a copy of your photos back to you.
The beauty of this is, a.) you don’t have to pay for film processing, b.) you get to be extra excited about finding out what’s living on your roll of film, and c.) you get to be a part of the most awesome and unique film community on planet earth.
Alternatively you can still continue to send us your rolls and details digitally via email and wetransfer.com. This will continue to function the same.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any thoughts or questions
you’d like to share with us.
Please allow up to 2 weeks for processing of rolls from time we receive your roll of film. 1 roll of film processed per submission. If you send us multiple rolls processing may take up to 4-6 weeks from date of receiving delivery. We take no responsibility for any damage that may occur in the postage delivery or film developing process. We do take full responsibility for you enjoying being part of the IC community and endeavour to make this a fun and very excellent experience.
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 then downloading and processing rolls.

Indisposable Concept is a non-profit organisation that aspires to build a community of unique individuals that aim to collectively share and communicate various social findings primarily through the medium of photography and film with a willingness to share the indisposable world around them. The project is open to everyone from all walks of life and we encourage all to participate.
Thanks for your consideration and support in shaping Indisposable Concept with us, your involvement and enthusiasm for film and life is the heart and soul of the project.
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.
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.
