Winners of the Russia!/Lomography Bar Crawl Competition!

15

Several weeks ago we put you to a big challenge - we teamed up with our friends at "Russia! Magazine":http://www.readrussia.com for a mission that would be featured in an article for their fine magazine, and we asked you for photos of Russian- or Soviet-themed bars around the world. This was a super-specific task, and I'm very proud to say you really pulled through. Thank you to everyone who participated in this competition!

    People I have to say something before all of this gets to busy (I was just so confused):
    It's not alone my idea that is shown in my entry! Mephisto19 and me did this together with two entries in this rumble and he should have won too! Or both of us featured in one entry! His pictures are done in the same style with the same people and they are also very funny and brilliant! Isn't it possible to add his pictures to mine and share this?!?!?!?!?!

    we will try our best to sort this out... i'll let you know what i can do... to avoid this in the future, when submitting shots that look the same, someone is going to win and not the other, because the judges are looking for variety in their selections... this competition was done with a magazine that intends to publish the photos in an article on Russian bars, so of course they want variety... so someone was going to win, but not both! and there is no way to know who shot what other than under what user name the photos are submitted... but we want everyone to be happy, so we'll figure this out... just give us a few days, ok?

    as for a copy of the issue, i'm sure we can work that out with Russia!

    prizes will ship soon, so please be patient!

    :)

    Great job everyone! It looks like a particularly challenging challenge given the indoor low-light situation which was handled very well by all!

    Thanks ouroborosx!!!!
    Sure only one can win and maybe the decision was very close but it would simply be great if there'd be a chance for both of us!
