It may sound simple, but condensing and interpreting a whole month into a single word is definitely harder and more than meets the eye. That’s the challenge we’ve prepared for you guys in our Word of the Month competition and the challenge starts now! Grab your trusty dictionary and even the thesaurus and give us your best interpretation of the word Chaotic. We’re enclosing the definition here as well but hey, don’t let that stop you!

Chaotic: \kā-ˈä-tik\ adj. in a state of complete confusion and disorder
Caótico: \kɐ’ɔtiku\ adj. em estado de completa confusão e desordem
カオス: 混乱、無秩序の状態

Details:

  • Prize(s): 5 winners of 10 Piggies. All winners will receive a special award badge straight to their LomoHomes
  • Film/Camera Type: Any analogue photo not digitally enhanced or manipulated. Please keep in mind of our Word of the Month theme.
  • Upload Limit: 1 photo only so make it count!
  • Minimum Photo Dimensions: Submissions must be at least 768px in either width or height.
  • Meta data must be completed (camera, film, location & 3 tags)

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.
