Let's put our fancy modern cameras aside for a moment and dig back into our existing collection of photos!
In this contest, we want to see OLD photos, and by old, we mean, from a previous Millenium! I.e. before the year 2000. Taking a new photo and making it look old is not allowed in this contest.
Even though digital cameras were already in use during that time (Kodak released the first digital camera as early as 1975), they weren't as mainstream as they are today. This means that photos can also be photos that were taken with classic analog cameras. If you use one of these, take a picture or scan the photo, so you can upload it to the contest.
Obviously, some people weren't even born back then. If you fall into this category, see if you can find some old photos from family or friends. Just make sure you ask their permission to use them.
Vintage style, B&W, and color photos are all allowed. Colorized B&W photos are allowed as well. Photos are not limited to portraits.
Photos can date back however far you want and preferably have an interesting backstory. Tell others when the photo was taken, what the occasion was, who or what is in the photo, and why the photo is important to you.
When voting on a photo, take into account the technological limits that were prevalent during the time the photo was taken. Judge by that, and the backstory of the photo.
