The Great Analogue Photo Rumble – Last few days


We want your vintage shots!

We want your vintage shots!

The Photokina camera fair’s opening soon and in a few weeks we’re going to wrap up the Analogue 2008 rumble – where we will unveil the biggest lomowall ever in history! There will be more than 100,000 analogue photos from different walks of life.

We are calling everyone to submit their most VINTAGE, OLD-SCHOOL photos and show the world how the world has changed (or has not changed) through the delicious world of film. We are giving everyone two full weeks to dig deep through photos from their family archives, the rusted-out photo frames in everyone’s home desk. Whether it be old-hollywood glamour, postwar relics or even the funky-headband decades we would definitely appreciate your help with this one-of-a-kind endeavor of old meets new, new meets old and prove to the world that analog is still KING!

Let the world see the old world through a different light – and make history by reinventing the history of film! Participate here now!

The rumble ends August 18 which is this monday – act fast! Not only do you get a chance for your photos to be seen, you get piggy-point fat rewards as well!

It might help you to classify your thoughts or the thoughts of your kin by checking the following rules out:


Here are the conditions: You can upload images relating to all of the 15 categories. However, you can only upload a maximum of 20 images to any one category. (see below for complete 15 upload categories). Final deadline for submissions is 18th of August. It would make us very happy if you also filled in the approximate year when the image was taken. Thanks!

(what would a rumble be without piggies flying away to your lomoshop bank?)

  • 5 Piggy Points – for everyone who uploads 5 images or more
  • A further 5 Piggy Points to everyone who fills in the optional time field – estimating when the pic was taken.

Piggy Points are wondrous online vouchers worth 1 EUR/USD on


But hold on. This is not just any rumble we’re talking about. It’s a serious mission to pave the way to the analogue future! We’ve selected the 15 most-voted-for analogue keywords from the results of the grand Analogue vs Digital survey:

  • authentic
  • love
  • unpredictable
  • surprise
  • experiment
  • excitement
  • beautiful
  • satisfaction

to name but a few all-star nouns, with which we hope to push your upload-trigger. Your submitted images MUST reflect these categories. They should visually describe the findings of the grand Analogue vs. Digital survey, put simply; that the most exciting, inspiring and beautiful things in life will always remain analogue!

    Am I supposed to upload the vintage pics in one of the 15 categories? Or is it some special section?

  3. snoop

    you have to upload it to one of the sections. and there you can then add the date of the shot.

  4. myloveletter

    so the vintage shots go in with our regular submissions? and how will you tell the difference? (other than it will be obvious - i mean, are you really going to examine if they are vintage or not?)

  5. anarchy

    I guess the time field where you fill in an estimation of what year the shot was taken will give 'em a good hint of which photos are "vintage" ;-)

  6. snoop

    exactly, with the years you choose we know which ones are really vintage

  7. myloveletter

    i meant that this wasn't separate as far as submitting to, but i guess not. thanks for clearing that up...

  8. agrimony

  9. maxpinckers
    maxpinckers ·

    I uploaded some things but still haven't received my piggies :(

    Will you present the "winning" shots in an online lomowall or how do we know which shots are accepted for the wall?

    On-Time Rumble: Show Us Your Perfect Timing

    There is nothing than a photo shot at the perfect moment. Henri Cartier Bresson's principle on "The Decisive Moment" is a principle that we should still follow to this day. A perfectly-timed photo creates impact, whether it's one of a friend jumping into the pool or a couple emerging from the ceremony on their wedding day. For this rumble, we want to see that breathtaking moment, shot at the perfect time.

    My Lomo’Instant Quick Tips

    I backed the Kickstarter project for the Lomo’Instant earlier this year and was thrilled to receive it last week. I love how the camera naturally encourages you to experiment with its different features, whether it’s through flashing your multiple exposures with different colors or trying different creative techniques after your shots has been ejected. Here are a few tips from what I’ve discovered from playing with the camera so far (and a couple of tips I want to try out in future)!

Local association Breathe Como made a performance of power yoga exercises to raise funds for Africa. I developed the film a few days ago, and today I'll show the photos to you! I call this "Fresh From My Darkroom" because I developed the black and white films by myself! Take a look!

Head past the jump to find out more about the great time we had with Lassi and to see some old-school Petzval shots!
