So you love pictures and taking them. Well, POSTRmagazine does so too, which is why we are working together with the nice folks: in order to share our mutual passion for depictive storytelling with two separate audiences who might turn out to have more in common than they might think.

How are we planning to do this?

By handing out free Lomography cameras (Lubitel 166+ and Diana F+) to stir up both your sense of art and your predatory personal gain at the same time!

Sounds cruel and harsh? Wait until you read POSTRmagazine #5: The Art Issue, in which we question the image of contemporary art as being free of economic interest and market manipulation, and paint a Portrait Of The Artist As One Clever Bastard. In the meanwhile, feel free to feed your own starving artist by participating in our Will Snap For Stuff-contest!

How to enter?
Go to the Lomography photo archive, choose 1 photo out of the Lubitel 166+ or Diana F+ gallery that depicts what Art is or should be according to you and complement it with 1 photo you took yourself dealing with that same subject.
Remember: a single picture equals a million words. This means that we won’t read beyond the photo you send us. So don’t try to explain what’s in it, we speak picture.

What can you win?

  • First Prize: Lubitel 166+
  • Second & Third Prize: Diana F +

Send your two photos to competition@postrmagazine.com . Deadline for the competition is April 4, 2010.

We look forward to seeing your stories.

    "Go to the Lomography photo archive, choose 1 photo out of the Lubitel 166+ or Diana F+ gallery" WHAT gallery? there is no lubitel gallery or have i just not found it? or do i have to search for lubitel shots? and what about diana? the ones that are there? the most popular? or what? sorry... don't get it

    I'm guessing you'll have to choose one of those shots? www.lomography.com/photos/cameras/Lubitel%20166B/popular

    yeah it's not clear to me either. should we search for lubitel or diana photos, pick one, add another one of our own shots and send both to you?

    Does it matter if our own photo isn´t done with a Lubitel or a Diana?

    Also, it says to send in two pictures - so we have to download the picture we find in the photo archives (which belongs to someone else) and send it in along with our own? How will you know which photo belongs to whom?

    As others have said, realy really confused. . .does my photo have to be taken with a Diana or Lubitel? Or just the other photo I select? Gosh, I have so many questions, I'm not sure I can even fit them all. . .

    "Send your two photos to......" and "no Photo Upload is required for this competition" ????? more and more obscure to me.

    I'm not comfortable with using someone elses photo so I'll just say good luck to those who take part.

    Is the archive photo we took going to win the prize too?

    In case someone picked my photo from the Lubitel+ and /or Diana+ archive, and the person who submitted my photo and his/her photo won the contest, what would I get? I think it would be fair If both photos get something...

    I think this contest is based more on your vision/criteria of what "art" is or should be... rather than your photo taking skills... it's more of a message than a showing contest... i think... into the archives it is...
