Ilford Photo has hidden a special silver ticket alongside one of its films – with the lucky winner getting an all-expenses-paid trip to the film producer’s factory in the UK.

The prize, which was announced on World Photography Day (19 August) marks the company’s 140th anniversary.

In a press release Ilford Photo said: “This year marks 140 years since the original ILFORD company was founded. To celebrate we are hiding a unique Silver Ticket inside one of our most popular black and white ILFORD films.

“The ticket will be inside one of the following limited edition boxes which include our 140 year logo on the packaging.

“It will be inside the box in 120 film or in the tub if it’s in one of our 35mm films.”

The statement also outlined which of Ilford Photo’s films the ticket could be hidden in, as seen in the photo below.
