Contest Directions: Color film was rare in World War II. The vast majority of the photos taken during the conflict were in black and white, and color photography as a whole was still a relatively new technique. It's this fact that makes the photos from a new book published by Imperial War Museums so mesmerizing. They are in their original state -- not retouched, not colorized: "You are seeing exactly what was taken. I know it's common these days to see retouched photographs and colorized black & white photos, but this is the real deal," said the book's author Ian Carter during a phone interview. The images were commissioned by the British Ministry of Information, which got hold of a very small quantity of Kodachrome film.
In this contest, your mission is to COLORIZE any old black and white or vintage photo. This can be one of your own, a famous image or portrait, or an historic image. YOU MUST SHOW BOTH the ORIGINAL and your COLORIZED Picture in your SUBMISSION. PLEASE NOTE: LIMIT 3 ENTRIES PER PLAYER. For more on this story Visit This Link
