The Great Lomo LC-A Race: Stage One ended about 5 years ago

You didn't think a worldwide competition would be a walk in the park, did you? Here's the first mission you need to accomplish for eternal Lomographic glory! Be sure to read through our Mission brief first though!

The gears are turning and the wheels are in motion for The Great Lomo LC-A Race! We are all waiting for the ten teams’ different Location entries to wow us on each turn but the buck doesn’t stop there. Each team has ten secret missions for each stage of the race and now, it’s time to unveil the first task!

Stage One Mission: Show your Local Flavor!

Parade the gustatory delights that’s undeniably local. Is it a hotdog stand that’s been at the corner street for 50 years? Or a hole-in-the-wall restaurant that serves more than exotic cuisine? Show us what makes your place tick! The winning photo will bag 50 Piggy Points to be split to all members of your team (5 Piggy Points each). So be sure to cheer on your team’s participant from afar, as it’s a win-win for all!

Meet our Race Jury and read up on further race clarifications!

  • Prize(s): 50 Piggy Points split to members of the team with the winning photo (or photo set)
  • Film/Camera Type: Only shots taken with the supplied race Lomo LC-A unit during the time period of July 7, 2009 – July 21, 2009 – Participants should turn over cameras to the next participant by July 21, 2009 but submissions for the first mission are allowed until July 28. Only participants of the Lomo LC-A Race are allowed to submit in this rumble.
  • Remember to turn on your GPS unit while shooting!

Please check out the GPS Software download link here And the accompanying help section on how to operate the GPS unit. Further details will follow soon as to how you could upload the GPS location data.

  • Upload Limit: 10 photos
  • Minimum Photo Dimensions: Submissions must be at least 768px in either width or height.
  • Tags must be completed with the following details for eligibility: Team name (ex. North America Team 1) and the mission stage tags: food , local flavor and lomo lc-a race mission
  • By submitting your photos to this rumble, you allow Lomography.com to use your submitted photos for promotional purposes.

    If I'm not mistaken the lomograph above is the one I took when I was in Kupang, West Timor, Indonesia. It is about slices of beef being dried under the sun before being cooked into a local specialty dish.

    This mission seems to be a very exciting opportunity for cultural exchange. I look forward to seeing great photos featuring local flavors and learn about cultures in other places.
    To all team racers, lomo on!

    Do all the shots have to be uploaded BEFORE the two week deadline? Also, do all the locations have to be uploaded before the two week dealine as well?

    Is the deadline really correct? My lab won't x-pro more than 2 rolls between every 40 regular rolls (to save the chemistry), so I'll need 1-2 weeks for the development...
    I thought we had 14 days to shoot and then we would have a reasonable amount of time to get the films developed, scanned and submitted... You really should re-consider this deadline if it's not a typo...

    My lab now takes around a week to do xpro as well meaning I will have to shoot all my locations in a week or less for my leg of the race to be sure to submit in time. Seems like a stretch to have all the rolls shot, developed and scanned with written locations in such a short time.

    Yeah you might want to send out another message stating when everything has to be uploaded by and set everyone straight about when the photos need to be posted by....

    good luck to everyone!

    yep. that's what I was worried about, too. I would love to have 2 full weeks to shoot, and maybe a week or so to have the films developed and to scan the neg, upload on the website, write the location and such. I mean, that's a LOT of work!

    @everyone - we added an additional week for submissions, but this is the maximum we could give, else the race will drag on too long. Everyone should still send over the camera to the next participant by July 21, 2009 though.

    the following missions would also have an additional week for the submission deadline, so we hope this helps with all of your photo and data processing! :)
