In honor of Sir Paul McCartney's birthday week, we decided to have a yellow-themed rumble, which is also reminiscent of one of The Beatles' most popular songs (in case you haven't noticed it yet). While we know, we know, finding a Yellow Submarine just lying around and waiting for you to take a photo of it is well, quite impossible. We'll make things easier for you. Read on to find out how you can score some big fat piggies!
Okay so you want to get some piggies? Well if you have a penchant for anything yellow, then here’s your chance! Given that Sir Paul McCartney will forever remain larger than life given his status as one of the world’s most iconic musicians, we want you to also go big with this rumble. The brighter, the bolder, the yellow-er the better whether it’s through your choice of film, diving into a field of sunflowers, or miraculously finding a yellow submarine, we want you to send in your best yellow-hued photos!
Ready? Here are the details:
Prize(s): 3 winners of 15 piggies each. All winners will receive a special award badge straight to their LomoHomes
