Ready to take on a new challenge? Don’t worry; it’ll be much easier this time, as long as you got yourself and your camera together, then it’s time to enter the showdown!
It could be a simple act of aiming the camera to oneself, but in actuality, it’s more than that. It could be more complex than you thought – it’s one of the many ways one can define himself, a kind of self-preservation where there is either a sense of urgency to record or defy time, aging and mortality. And of course being a Lomographer, the creative will to do this is always to be considered the top motivation, and vanity is least considered when making such photo.
This time around, we want to see how you deal with this genre, the art of snapping self-portraits! We know you got a lot of these, but only one shot of yours is enough, so make it good!
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 taken with Lomography cameras. Please keep in mind of our ‘self-portraits’ 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)
Don't be afraid of taking photos indoors or under low-light conditions. As long as there's light around us, the camera will be ready to shoot. Here's a tipster for you. Just remember to catch the lights!
The new year is still young, but it seems as if it'll be over quickly. My organizer is already filled with entries until June. 2015 will probably be worse than 2014 when it comes to having time off so I could take some analogue shots. Anyway, there are some photography-related things that I really want to get done. It is probably best to set some goals if I only have very limited time.
Capture the world and all its contours in vibrant, wide-angled photographs any time, any where!

What do you do when you don't have much time in a city like New York but you want to see everything, feel the vibe and be part of the community, even for a short time? Jump on a bike and enjoy what trains, buses and cabs can never give you: be part of the city. Take a camera with you to capture the moments and sights you don't want to forget. I did this with my LC-A 120 and LomoChrome Purple film.
