Mingle With the Stars at Cannes Competition ended over 3 years ago

It’s almost that time of the year, when stars, directors, and the media gather round the streets of Cannes to show off the glitz and glamor of the movie industry and highlight their projects. This time around, you could join them! Join this competition for a chance to travel to Cannes, hang out with Lomographers and spot some stars!

So, what do we want to see? Anything movie related, of course! Have a picture that looks like the scene of a movie? Do people hold you up on the street and ask if you are Brad Pitt? Does that shot you took of the cab in New York look like a still from Limitless? Are you curious to know what happened last night with you friends like the guys in The Hangover? Did you get a shot of a girl having a Marilyn Monroe moment when the wind blew under her skirt?

You get the picture! Show us your most Hollywood shots for a chance to go to Cannes, because we certainly think this glamorous event could use some Lomographic feel. Join the on-site Lomography team in capturing the action.

Yes, we are totally serious! We teamed up with MUBI and the Short Film Festival to send two of you to Festival de Cannes equipped with Access All Areas Passes for the Short Film Festival taking place from 11th to 22nd of May.

    "but you will have to get yourself to Cannes" NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
    i was sooo excited reading this, until i got to this part.... oh man, i'm brokenhearted.. i'm in university studying screenplay writing for movies, it's my dream to go to Cannes! but i can't afford a ticket to France :( i think i'll cry..
    any way, good luck to all of you who aren't too far away from France! it's a hell of a rumble!

    "but you will have to get yourself to Cannes". Gutted! How long would it take to cycle to Cannes from UK. Maybe I could hitch hike? Swim? Row?

    aren't there any runners up? cause i have some photos that could fit this competition.. but since i can't afford the ticket to france it would be stupid and masochist to send something if that's the only prize (imagine if i actually won the grand prize! i would kick myself forever!) anyway, are there?

    Why did I enter?! I'm not sure if I would be available to go, let alone afford to... Oh well, where there's a will, there's a way. Sigh.
