Newbie Shooters Rumble


New to Lomography? Don't get intimidated as this rumble is all about you!

Photo by: dfunkdamager

Greetings new Lomographers and welcome to the wonderful world of analogue excitement! We hope that you’re enjoying your stay here so far but we noticed that most of the new shooters don’t join the rumbles that much. Is it because of the veterans here hogging all the glory? We hope not!

So what we’ll do is create this rumble, entirely for new Lomographers registered here on the site for 3 months and younger! There’s no specific theme in mind. Just bring your best shots so far so we can see the future stars of Lomography! It’s your time to shine as the veterans watch and cheer from the sidelines. Enjoy shooting and good luck!

  • Film/Camera Type: Any analogue camera photo not digitally manipulated/enhanced. Please keep in mind of our newbie restriction.
  • 10 picture upload limit,at least 768px in either width or height
  • Photos must be tagged at least with camera, film and location.
  • Winners get 10 Piggies each!
  • Meta data please (camera, film, location & 3 tags!)
  • By submitting your photos to this rumble, you allow to use your submitted photos for promotional purposes.

    Do the 3 months start counting only in this new website? I ask this because I had a home in the old lomography website (only 2 photos, anyway), but it's been less than 3 months since I created a home here and I do feel a Newbie! =) Can I join the rumble, can I, can I?

    Don't know when I started my account....but I just shot and developed my very first fisheye pics. I uploaded them and hope I'm in for the competition??
    Anyway, nice idea!! Can't wait to upload and create my second album!

  42. mephisto19

    @little_lomo piggies or piggy points are vouchers for the lomography online shop. 1 pig = 1 eur/usd/gbp. so you can spend them on nice products here. there are some links explaining that and if you are logged in, you can see "see piggies" on top, a link leading to your piggiebank... @dizziedee you have to selct the shots after uploading by going o this page here, net to the comment function there is "submit photos". select the ones you want to submit there.... OR look at the photos directly whe you are logged in and under all the information you added you find a box to which competitions this shot has been submitted. under that there is a direct submit to box, where you can see all ongoing competitions. enjoy the rumble!!!!

    Can someone please tell me how come my tags don't show up when I'm very sure I have tagged? It's funny when I logged in on the German's site, I see them but not when I'm logged in on the International site.
