What a Rumble!


Pick the theme with this rumble!

Several questions have been asked as to how you from the community could pick a theme for the next rumble. Well, for one every now and then we have rumbles where you get to chose the next theme as a prize. Today we want to give you the chance to nominate some topics for future rumbles. How? Well simply by submitting pictures that will somehow represent a theme from which you would like to see a rumble.


  • Any analogue photos for this rumble, any theme (as long as it, in fact, is a theme)
  • Pictures should be at least 768 px either side
  • Sorry guys, just 3 themes (pictures) for this rumble
  • You can let us know what theme you were thinking of by letting us know in the tags
  • 3 winners for this rumble, each getting 5 piggies and a rumble for their theme!
  • By submitting to this rumble you allow Lomography.com the rights to use you pictures for promotional purposes.

    how come theres no link to submit a photo?

  2. vicuna
    vicuna ·

    Should the tiltle and/or tags describe the theme or only the picture itself? And cinzinc is right, there's no submission link.... or perhaps directly submit from our albums?

  3. mandashitley

    you can submit via the photos themselves.

    I submitted 3 shots directly from my albums for 3 different "rumble themes" ideas, and wrote the theme idea in the tags... Hope it's ok in this way :))

    Submitted some more shots for the same previous rumble ideas as I saw that there was a 10 pictures submission limit... :)

    @mephisto19: you can through your albums: choose the pic _from_there_ and attach it to the rumble. It worked for me. Uhm... there should be a better way, totally agreed. Absolutely, even.

    hey guys. i just found out the secret would like to share with you.

    to submit, you have to upload the photos to an album. then browse the photos that you want to submit in your album. when you open a photo, you will see " submit this photo to a competition" and a pull-down menu " Please select an ongoing competition" at the bottom right corner of that page. Then you know what to do! Voila! Good luck to all.

    With positive sense of humour, as sometimes some pages of the beta site... one of my themes is to play hide-and-seek.
