Lomography and FOUR PAWS: Orang-Utans on Tour - Harry Travels Around the World - Update ended about 4 years ago

This summer is all about Orang-Utans! FOUR PAWS and Lomography invites you to travel around the world with little Harry: a plush Orang-Utan, and show us his amazing adventures. Take pictures of Harry wherever you go, and you'll get the chance to win some prizes!

Lomography and FOUR PAWS invite you to a very special competition this summer. FOUR PAWS is a supporter of the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation (BOS). The BOS run an Orang-Utan sancturay in Samboja. Here, orphan Orang-Utans learn everything they need to know in order to survive on their own after being released into the wild.

These animals are highly endangered because of the tropical deforestation. Their natural habitat gets smaller every day. FOUR PAWS aim to help those Orang-Utans that won’t survive in the wild. Step by step they learn how to lead an independent life and are then reintroduced to a secured territory. Old and ill animals can spend their remaining years in the sanctuary.

You can support FOUR PAWS by adopting one of our plush “Hairy Harrys” – Orang-Utan puppets. Take him with you wherever you go. Travel around the world with Harry and show us how you live, where you live and document Harrys journey on as many lomographs as possible.
Take Harry everywhere: holidays, sailing adventure, pool party, supermarket. Let him travel the world.

What you need to do
To get one of our little Hairy Harrys just write an e-mail to hairyharry@lomography.com, tell us your exact address, and your full name. We will then send you further information and the terms and conditions of this competition. FOUR PAWS will then send you a plush Harry wrapped in a plush-species-appropriate box.

The competition
As soon as Harry has reached you, you can start taking pictures. Take Harry with you all the time and take pictures of him wherever you go. You can upload your analogue shots right here in this blog.
Harry will be on its way to you from mid-July. His holiday journey ends on August 31st. Until that date you have time to travel with Harry.

Harry Online
Become a fan of Harry’s on his Facebook page. Share the adventures you and Harry made with all the other adoptive mothers and fathers.

The prizes
The winners will be announced in September and you can win shiny new camera packages.

For more than two decades, FOUR PAWS has consistently and successfully focused on one goal: to help animals – abused due to economic, scientific or other reasons – to their rights.
