Wrangler Competition Announcement

77

As some of you may have seen, we recently announced the winners for the most-awesome Wrangler competition. There were a whole lot of amazing analogue shots, but unfortunately a digital shot sneaked in and ruined the party. We would like to take the time to apologise to you all, our analogue-loving friends, and to take the time to explain what happened. But much more than that, we're happy to announce a brand new ANALOGUE top winner!

First of all, we would like to offer to you all our deepest apologies that a digital photo was chosen as the winner by accident. We’re happy that all of you, just like us, care so passionately about film and were so quick to get in touch with us to voice your concerns. Here’s what happened:

To choose the winners of this competition, the judges went old-school and printed off all the photos. Unfortunately this unintentionally made it very difficult for the judges to tell what was analogue and what was in fact digital. This meant they were unable to tell that the winning shot had in fact been photoshopped and was not a genuine Lomographic picture.

Just like many of you, we quickly realised that something was wrong and rejudged the whole competition. We are now happy to offer our sincerest apologies and to present to you, the brand new winners of the Wrangler competition! ANALOGUE FOREVER!

And the new Grand Prize Goes to…

Congratulations to our very own frauspatzi – A true Lomographer extraordinaire and the winner of the Wrangler Grand Prize.

Winning shot by frauspatzi

She’s won an all-expenses paid to the nearest Wrangler showroom – to be completely kitted out in some awesome Wrangler gear! But that’s not all – she’s also about to become the proud owner of a Spinner 360°, an LC-A+ and a Limited Edition Wrangler Diana+. Check out her LomoHome!

But of course that’s not all!

    Congratulations to @frauspatzi for the great shot and to Lomography and Wrangler for making it right! The mere fact that the are so many "lomo" apps for iPhones shows the superiority of analogue. Now if we could just zap the spammers into the third ring of hell where they belong. :D
