Love Unexpected November - Hate to Love Winners Announcement


They say we can't have everything in life and hey, that's true! We always can't do what we want and we'd always be guilty for doing so.

Those are just some of the points our Love Unexpected November - Hate to Love rumble made us realize. But don’t be down, for we’ve made a terrific analogue fun out of it! And now it’s time to announce our winners!

Grand prize winner of an international trip to Virginia – Music Jams Trip (five nights, four days) and needs to travel in July 2013 during Floyd Fest dates:

    All very cool, although, I'm not sure how the television at sea side or the Monkey Maze fits the theme. Still, I like them all.

    Hey guys! I supposed I've asked for your e-mails already? If yes, then I've already forwarded them to the Virginia team. Sorry though, the processing after isn't my call.

    @mayeemayee Hi!! Long time ago I had contacted lomography international many times, But they didn't reply to me. I decided to contact Lomography Gallery Store Bangkok. I knew that the product is out of stock and discontinued. Then I got the prize (other Camera) from Lomography Gallery Store Bangkok than Virginia edition T_T .... Thank you very much for your empathy Mayee :)

    @kleinerkaries @mariaratfingers @alaitzoleaga, @amyheycock, @cutebun, @daitita, @heavenkot, @reverte, @sarahandsarah, @sobetion, @undiscovered, @yesno_maybe, Anyone of you got emails from the Lomography Virginia team? I never receive any reply- LSI only said they will forward the mail and no reply until now.

  38. heavenkot

    @cutebun they asked my for my details a few times, they redirected me from one person to another. As I understood, they don't have information whether the camera was sent or not - that was the info I was seeking to know cause I presume it could have been lost by post. I was unhappily surprised by their reaction and organisation I prefered to forget about this. In the last email Lomography provided me with another e-mail. I'll give you it in private message and I hope it will help you ;))

    Nobody ever contaced me! @zonderbar helped me to finally receive my prize. I could not get a Virginia is for lovers La Sardina because they are out of stock, but I could chose any other plastic La Sardina. Now the new Wally Edition is part of my collection. @heavenkot @cutebun

  40. cutebun

    @heavenkot Thank you and I shall try. Hopefully I can get the Wally Edition too like you @kleinerkaries =D

    @cutebun They contacted me on May asking for my details, I gave them, and they replied thanking me. After that I didn't hear anything else from them, so a month later I sent another e-mail to the person who contacted me. They never answered, but I guess it didn't took much more for the package to arrive cause I didn't send any other e-mails haha! And I did get the Sardina is for lovers, but I would definitely change it for any other lol

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on won't be reflected on and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.

    Painting Delights: Going Wild with the Pixelstick

    Ever since light painting was invented, it inspired artists from all around the globe to magical creations that capture hidden movements and reinvent the world we live in. "Life is a fairy tale, stay wild little child!" is what they want to tell us. Bringing light to life became the next challenge for anyone rigged with a film camera and a creative mind. Now, how can you take your analogue light paintings from the ordinary to the outstanding? After the carriage came the car, so we definitely need some spacy inventions to follow the old school light pen. So here it is, our new best friend: The Pixelstick!

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.
