Lomography Rodeo: Roundup Your Best Texas Shots!

21

Austin has been selected as the next location for a Lomography Gallery Store. Now is the time to insert your magic into its soon to be legendary space. The best photos will end up on the gallery store LomoWall!

Folks, the time has arrived for Texas. Austin is a unique spot in this grand state and Lomography is ready to put their big colorful fingerprint on the city. Is Texas ready for the magic? We think so. We are doing a Lomography roundup. If you have been through the great state of Texas and have some magical images you have taken away, or if you live there and catalog its awesomeness on the regular, it’s time to submit. We want the Texas traditions and the other side of the wild west. Send us your steers, windmills, wide open ranches and cowpokes. Show us a different side of the “everything is bigger” state. Surprise us with towering buildings, forgotten bridges, tubing trips, and late night dance halls.

How To Play The Game

This is open to all. Whether you are digging through past images from a vacation or you live here and are ready to step outside with an inspired purpose. Send in your prized pictures and earn yourself some bragging rights. The Austin Gallery Store’s LomoWall is in your hands. Just how colorful is Texas? Show us what you’ve got! Every Lomographer who has photos chosen for the lomowall will get 5 piggy points credited to their account!

Yehaw!

The rules

• Sort through your photos and pick the best ones thoroughly and thoughtfully. 

• Film/Camera Type: any kind of film / analogue camera can be used but standard 35mm or 120 format are preferred. (nothing should be digitally enhanced or manipulated.)

• Minimum Photo Dimensions: submissions must be at least 1220px in either width or height, larger dimensions are welcome 

• No visible borders or watermarks, etc.

    Question about the 1220 px size requirement... I scanned my negatives at 1200 dpi, but the largest I could get is 1100 on one side. Does the photo I upload have to be 1200, or can I provide a 1200 px scan of the chosen photo if I am a winner?
