The Lomo Hipshot Showdown - Be Somebody Else

13

Don't be ashamed to tell that you want to be somebody else. For once in our lives, we have always aspired to be another person, animal, object, or even an element!

Credits: atria007

And that’s why even in its littlest way, we would like to see how you’ve made your aspiration come true! In this week’s Lomo Hipshot Showdown, we want to see stunning Lomographs not of your being, but of somebody else! Are you wearing a mask? Are you dressed as a rockstar? Are you one with the stars?

If you’ve captured similar analogue moments with those I’ve mentioned, then this rumble is for you! We know you’ve got a pseudo self hiding in there!

Details:

1. 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)
2. 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
3. Film/Camera Type: Any analogue photo not digitally enhanced or manipulated. Please keep in mind of our ‘Movement’ theme.
4. Upload Limit: 1 photo per user
5. Minimum Photo Dimensions: Submissions must be at least 768px in either width or height.
6. Meta data must be completed (camera, film, location & 3 tags)

Good luck and keep those submissions coming!
