I think it's pointless to limit a photo contest to a certain type of camera used. How would someone know if I took a photo with a Leica M4, a Nikon FM2, a Rolleiflex or a Konica II? Scanned images have no Exif info. Also digital Exif info can be removed and/or changed.

I organized photo contests before and it is not possible to restrict a contest to a certain type of camera. As soon as there is money or certain types of expensive prices involved, the truth about the camera used will be - let's say - bent a little...

While I think the contest is a great idea, in the end we should vote for the image, not the gear.
