Fill the Map!

8

With the introduction of the new Lomolocations map here in the magazine this section has been brought to a new level. There are already 1040 locations online and more being added daily. We believe that the map allows for a new level of navigation, meant to make it easier for you to find a review of choice.

With the introduction of the new Lomolocations map here in the magazine this section has been brought to a new level. There are already 1040 locations online and more being added daily. We believe that the map allows for a new level of navigation, meant to make it easier for you to find a review of choice.

1040 locations is a lot, but we would like there to be more! There are several empty spaces in particular out there, and we are sure that some of you have either been there, perhaps even live there now, while others are just wishing to see this part of the world. Share your best moments with us all!

In order to make you a little bit more excited about this new project, we have changed the prize. The three users that submit the most number of relevant locations (see list below) will receive an additional bonus of 10 piggies. On top of that, they will receive an award on their homes “Lomotraveler.” (For this competition, please submit your entries as you would another location)

Time Until Monday the 8th of September

Submission limit No limit

Locations

Eastern Europe:
Albania, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Macedonia, Moldavia, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia

American States:
Colorado, Dakotas, Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Minnesota, Montana

China:
Any non coastal areas!

As we are sure that we will receive plenty of reviews from you, we would like to use this opportunity to publish our new guidelines. The reason that we are doing this is that we have in the past received reviews that you have spent time on to write, yet we have not been able to publish since they lacked something. With these guidelines, we hope that we can reduce the time from when you submit an entry until the time we publish it, and hence also the amount of submissions that we can not use.

We have decided to divide locations into two main sections, those which focus on the historical and cultural aspects of a location, and those that focus more on your personal experiences. As the types slightly differ, so do the guidelines. Please have a look at them here, they are meant to help you!

We would also like to announce that in the future, published entries will receive 5 piggy points.

We would also like to take this opportunity to remind you that submissions with 1 picture or 1 line of text do not suffice to get published.

Much Love

    I've been to almost all of those eastern Europe countries but unfortunately don't have that many relevant photos to submit to any particular location...

    Anyway, I'll get down to business and fill the map with other locations (not in the list). Just now about 10 locations popped into my head. I better get started right away =)

    @ fash_on

The Lomography community is no stranger to these instances. In fact, the community is filled with brilliant minds who are always ready to refine existing techniques and look for innovative ways to express their visions and ideas. Here are just a few of the creative lomographers we've come to love over the years.

    Brock Scott takes the new Petzval Lens to Panama

    Brock Scott is an Atlanta-based artist and the lead singer of the band Little Tybee. As part of his efforts to produce a video for a TEDx event in the Panamanian Jungle, he visited Kalu Yala -- a sustainable jungle settlement for entrepreneurs and tropical cowboys. A special opportunity like this certainly calls for a special lens, and Brock brought none other than the new Petzval Lens with him.
