“One is the loneliest number”

This is what everyone usually thinks of this digit, while there are those who would like to believe that this also have a very positive meaning and refuse to accept its definition that’s commonly synonymous to isolation. Indeed, this is one of the things currently mused upon by us, especially now that we’re on a calendar that progressively falls on a date resetting back to the prime number one: 11.11.2011

Still, this number have a lot of different connotations for everyone – it could be your pet cat, your loving wife or even your worst enemy that lives next door– all of which you consider number one! And these kind of shots are what we’re looking for this showdown!

Please take note of the minor changes regarding the details for this contest below


  • 2 winners will be selected, one by the Jury and another winner will be determined by the number of likes on the submitted photo (within the showdown period)
  • Prize(s): Jury’s choice will receive 15 Piggies and a badge while the Community’s choice will have a very special badge to be pinned in their LomoHome
  • Film/Camera Type: Any analogue photo not digitally enhanced or manipulated. Please keep in mind of our ‘Your Number One’ theme.
  • Upload Limit: 1 photo per user
  • Minimum Photo Dimensions: Submissions must be at least 768px in either width or height.
  • Meta data must be completed (camera, film, location & 3 tags)

    @fookshit: the upload limit is set at 10 pictures, but the text says 1. Maybe you should fix that, I already see several people who've uploaded more than one pic...

    @stratski aaack! thanks for that. updated the submission system now... would love to see those excess submissions though ;)

    It's unfair to see more than 1 submissions from other lomographers when I could only submit one picture :(

  5. fookshit

    @megustastu don't you worry, only one of their submission will be considered for the showdown :)

    I'm one of the people who submitted more than 1 photo (oops).. My bad... I'm just curious to know how are you gonna choose the 1 photo of the people who did submit more than one?

    @rjk_89 well, it's up to the jury what will they pick and depends on community which one they would like! ~_^

    you should ask them to choose the one they want to keep and to remove the others! it's easier, and more polite ;)

    I don't like all this, the most amount of likes system. In other comps like that it ends up being a popularity contest. The one who knows the most people on here will win. There is nothing about which photo is best!

    I just have ONE sister... so she's my one

For this rumble, we want to see that breathtaking moment, shot at the perfect time. And you showed us what it's like to be on time.

    When a truly fascinating photograph hits you, it’s powerful enough to transport you to the story that is being told in that image. Such is what happens when one sees Suji Park's work for the first time. It’s as if you can actually hear and feel the details of each snapshot — the warmth of a late afternoon sun, the complex silence of nature or a dry and nostalgic solitude.

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.
