FAD and Lomography competition, stage two


Show us your works of art to win some very special prizes from our friends over at FAD Magazine!

FAD is a London based art website covering contemporary art news, photography, street art, video,design, and more. They love photography, and Lomography in particular, and have offered to feature your masterpieces in an online gallery in their magazine!

We all know that the best thing about Lomographic images is their unpredictability, sometimes you get a photo back and think ‘what was that? It looks amazing! This is a work of art!’ or perhaps there is more method to your madness? Maybe you are a true artist who thinks carefully about your shots and sets them up with complete attention to detail?

For this rumble we want you to look back over your shots and ask ‘Is It Art?’ submit your most artistic shots for the chance to be chosen as the winner. This is an opportunity to let your creative side go wild!

The prizes:

One top prize winner will be interviewed by the friendly chaps at FAD, which will feature, along with their image, on the FAD website in January.
They will also get their hands on a Diana F+ CMYK, the classic Diana F+ camera splashed with super bright Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black – the four important colours in offset printing.

Nine runners up will also find fame as photographers as their image is featured and credited on FAD, in an online gallery in January.

This competition is now closed, you can see the winners here

    As a newbie I would be interested in the definition of "digitally enhanced". Does this cover all kinds of digital processing, or are we talking about retouching the image or enhancing colors in particular?
    I'm just asking because as a newbie I have several shots that are over exposed and need some treatment.
    If "not digitally enhanced or manipulated" means "the image must appear on film correctly" images like these are no candidates for a compo.
    And good look to all of you! :)

    @cptsalek Welcome to lomography and we don't care if your shots are overexposed, post 'em! Normally only minimal corrections to offset for scanning are ok, any "treatment" is a no go. Some of our best shots are hopelessly overexposed! Don't think, just shoot!! :D
