Get On The Road with Lomography and On The Road!

5

Give us your best shots of 'Americana' and being On The Road, for a chance to win the prize of a lifetime!

Are you mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, and also mad to shoot? Desirous of snapping photos of everything at the same time? Do you just burn, burn, burn through film like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the sky? Then we’ve got the adventure for you!

We’ve teamed up with IFC Films & Sundance Select's On The Road for a post modern odyssey of a competition! Capture the freedom of the road in up to 10 analog photos for a chance to win. There’s a lot at stake, so let’s get inspired first!

First of all, On The Road is directed by acclaimed filmmaker Walter Salles (Central Station, The Motorcycle Diaries) and based on the iconic novel by Jack Kerouac. On The Road tells the timeless story of Sal Paradise (Sam Riley), a young writer whose life is shaken and ultimately redefined by the arrival of Dean Moriarty (Garrett Hedlund), a free-spirited, fearless, fast talking Westerner and his girl, Marylou (Kristen Stewart). Traveling cross-country, Sal and Dean venture out on a personal quest for freedom from the conformity and conservatism engulfing them in search of the unknown, themselves, and the pursuit of “it” — the pure essence of experience. Seeking uncharted terrain and the last American frontier, the duo encounter an eclectic mix of men and women — Bull (Viggo Mortensen), Camille (Kirsten Dunst), Carlo (Tom Sturridge), Jane (Amy Adams), Terry (Alice Braga), Galatéa (Elisabeth Moss) – each impacting their journey indelibly.

Now that you’ve got that spirit intact, let’s take a look at the near generation defining prizing!

Before we get into it, the awesome filmmaker, Walter Salles, will be selecting the winner of this competition!

1 Enormous Grand Prize:

5 Awesome Runners Up:

Submit up to 10 images that embody the feeling of being On The Road and play by the rules:

  • Film/Camera Type: Shots from any kind of film/analog camera are eligible – standard 35mm or 120 format preferred, not digitally enhanced or manipulated.
  • Minimum Photo Dimensions: Submissions must be at least 768px in either width or height, though larger dimensions are welcome.
  • No visible borders or watermarks, etc.

Please Note If you are selected as the grand prize winner, you will have just days to get your gallery show images to us! So be prepared!

'On The Road' opens in New York (IFC Center, Lincoln Plaza Cinemas) and LA (Arclight, Landmark) on December 21; other cities to follow in January 2013!

Good Luck!

    what an amaizing contest. Kerouac´s On the Road really changed the way I undestood the creative process. I´m not a really great fan of Salles (he has some really great films, but I hated Motorcycle Diaries), but I´m dying to see On the Road.
