Photobombing

19

For this competition we want to see your best Photobombing moments. For those of you not familiar with the term, let us draw you a little picture. Remember last Saturday, when you went to take a picture of your grandma and grandpa sitting on the porch, and you had the perfect shot?

And then you waited, got your prints back and then realized, that yes, that is your little cousin in the corner intentionally picking his nose ruining your shot. That’s what we are looking for, but this time, we want it to be intentional.

Now that you know the fine art of photobombing. Find the subject of desire, get a picture, and have someone else photobomb at the same moment. We want to see your best moments of photobombing, be they awkward, crazy or just plain funny. Best 10 photobombers will not only receive fame, but also 10 piggies each.

recurving and snoop on a photobombing mission.

According to Urban Dictionary, Photobombing is, “(verb)- to drop in a photo unexpectedly…to hop in a picture right before it is taken.”

    My friend does this alot... But mainly when I am about to take a pic of her. She goes from smiling to making some ridiculous face. Would that count if she bombs her own photo?

    The entries to competitions on here seem to get stranger and stranger. Do people not read the requirements? Flicking through for 5 minutes you get empty beaches, cats and countless intentional portraits! Now wheres my picture of those pylons...

    This competition is great. I often find half the fun comes from seemingly disappointing snaps!

    Interesting rumble and some shots are really funny. But only about 20 percent of the submissions meet the requirements.
