Shoot Your Prophecy Winner Announcement

You got the posters and stickers, you stuck them everywhere and you shot your prophecy - And boy, didn’t you do a good job at it! But did you shoot your way to success? Who are the talented 3 lomographers who’ve won themselves a once-in-a-lifetime trip to visit Lomography HQ in Vienna? Read on to find out the winners and some special surprise prizes too!

Congratulations and thanks to all of you who took part in our huge Shoot Your Prophecy rumble. We loved every one of the creative ways you came up with of shooting the posters! We had some truly great shots to pick from – With over 3000 photos submitted, we had shots taken with Fisheyes and Supersamplers, LC-As and Lubitels, and all kinds of other analogue cameras too! But it was great to see a unifying force throughout the entries, wherever they were taken in the world – A deep and innate passion for analogue photography! But, alas, alas, there can only be 3 winners for our awesome grand prize, a trip to visit the Lomography Headquarters in Vienna! So, without further ado, here are the 3 big winners!

North and South AmericaJorgesato

The simplicity of Jorgesato’s photo of a sticker against the sky perfectly captures the beauty of analogue.

monkeyballs really got us giggling with this photo capturing the avant-garde of analogue!

She may have been boxed-in but Flyaway really let loose with this lovely photo!

A huge congratulations go to the 3 of you! We’ll be in touch by email soon to arrange the trip!

But that’s not all – We were so impressed with so many of the entries that we’ve decided to award some highly commended photos with 50 Piggy Points too! Here are our highly commended finalists and their photos below:

    aww, i have the same sentiments as @zoezo and @mephisto19. i really did try to think of unique ideas to get those posters out there. i skinned a camera, had my friends raise eyebrows at a public restroom, and made those look twice shades. fine, call me a sourpuss.
