  • Create a mini gallery of 5 lomographs in your tipster related to your experiment

    What about tipsters that we've submitted and published in the past? Can we use those? But then ... we can't edit the tags.

    I've always fancied trying to warp film in the microwave before using it, has anyone heard/seen/tried this before or know of where I can get help for a lomo obsession?

    @mrmaart thanks very much. I submitted my tipster well ahead of the deadline. I thought for sure I had included 'gupexperiment' in the tags, but when I search for that tag, my article doesn't come up. I'm not sure if I am doing something wrong. My tipster is "Multiple Exposure Self Portraits". Thanks again.

    @mrmaart

    i resubmitted my tipster, whcih was called "Supersampler meets match-box", the new name is "Supersampler + match-box = Collage". All tags are written. Hope it would be recieved. Sorry for my internet connection, I live in Russia and it sucks over here, i guess than i was submitting my tipster on aug.12th or 13th smth went wrong and u didn't get my article. Maybe my wi-fi lagged. I'm really sorry i just realised it, cos I didn't see my tipster published for a long while. I was out of the city, so I just got online. Thanks for the undersatnding and again - my apologises! Cheers!

    @colleenmaria - no worries. we found your tipster too! the international editors will publish them one by one. that's why it could take some time before they appear online.
