Our Policy

Our business was established on a quality basis.

It has grown because we act on the belief that we can maintain our position in the trade just so long as we make better goods than our competitors - and no longer.

Our customers receive the benefit of the most advanced photographic thought of Europe and America. Our American and foreign factories are in constant touch with each other. Each has the benefit of the work and the discoveries of the other. The very breadth of our business enables us to give to each department absolutely the best that the world affords in technical skill and in producing facilities. The man with a new photographic idea turns to Rochester for a market just as he turns to Washington for his letters patent.

Our theory is that we can best serve ourselves by supplying our customers the best goods. Our acts have made this Theory a Policy, for we have not merely the desire to make the best goods but the means of converting that desire into a Reality.

In our thirty years in the photographic business there have been several revolutionary changes. Doubtless there will be many more. Whatever they may be our Policy shall be to furnish (without following every mere will-o'-the wisp) the very best of those goods which painstaking testing shall prove to be of benefit to our customers in the Simplification of Photographic Processes and the Advancement of the Art.

THE AWARDS KODAK ADVERTISING COMPETITION

Philadelphia slow? Not at all. Why?

Five out of the twelve prizes in the Kodak Advertising competition went to that city - fourteen hundred and fifty dollars in cash prizes.

The reason seems not far to seek. Philadelphia is interested. It furnished a tremendously large proportion of entries. A few clever photographers down there having taken prizes in the earlier of these competitions, their neighbors became interested and went after the perfectly good but by no means easy money. If as large a proportion of the best photographers in all the rest of the country would go into these competitions we would be obliged to engage our judges by the year.

As a result of this competition we have some wonderfully clever photographic illustrations. Late in the winter we shall publish. some of these in a portfolio which we shall then be pleased to mail to any photographer who may ask for it.

This subject of photographic illustration is one that advertisers and publishers all over the country are very much interested in. There is going to be good money in it for those photographers who are also interested to the extent of taking hold of it vitally - who will make good photographs that tell a story.
