Spiders are not insects, but are they for this contest motto?

Let's say I take a picture with a Ricoh film camera. Can I submit to one of these contests? My Ricoh XR7 is probably my most used camera for the last year. Is there a requirement to use Pentax or Ricoh branded lenses?

I digitize my negatives with a Pentax DSLR but I do not hold that out to be "taken with a Pentax camera". If a Ricoh film camera does not fit the requirements, does a Pentax film camera suffice?
