Clever Collages Rumble ended almost 3 years ago

This month, we're on the lookout for the most creative and eye-catching modern collages in the art world. Now, it's your chance to do more with your photos and show off your very own collage masterpieces!

With collages, everything is possible—you can create new worlds, mythical beings, and interesting stories! So, we thought of stretching the boundaries of your creativity and imagination with our very own Clever Collages Rumble!

We’re challenging you to make use of your very best analogue photos to create mixed media collages and photomontages. But aside from showing your cut-and-paste masterpiece, we also want you to share with us how you did it!

Here’s what you need to submit:

  • The final product/collage, photographed or scanned (preferred), showcased in the tipster. Please leave a comment below once you have submitted your article!

The challenge ends in two months, so there’s still plenty of time for you to prepare and fashion your clever works of art!

If you’re feeling the need to be inspired to make your clever collage, check out the surreal creations by Agnes Montgomery and Juan Carlos Monroy!

Details:

  • Prizes: 1 winner of 20 Piggies + 10 Piggies for requested tipster and 3 runners-up of 10 Piggies each + 10 Piggies for requested tipster
  • Film/Camera Type: Materials for the physical collage should include print(s) of any analogue photo not digitally enhanced or manipulated.
  • Upload Limit: 1 submission only, so wow us with your creativity!
  • Published entries (even non-winners) will instantly earn 10 Piggies and those with tutorial videos will earn additional 5 Piggies!

    Hello @zoezo! You can digitally crop or resize your photo/s prior to printing, but the actual collage should be a physical, hand-crafted one.

    Does the collage just have to use photos or can we use other materials as well?

    Hello @marthasmarvels! Yes, you can use other materials to make your collage, but make sure to use at least one print of your analogue photo.

    Hey Lomokind! I don't mean to be a worry wort but if you're using material that you don't own, be sure to read-up on Fair Use for your protection. http://en.wikipedia.(…)ki/Fair_use

    A good way to break down is listed in the purpose section:
    "A key consideration is the extent to which the use is interpreted as transformative, as opposed to merely derivative."

    Good luck everyone!

    Hello @xaviru, sorry for the late reply! You can write the tipster on the local site in Spanish first, and we'll ask someone to translate it to English for the International Magazine.

    is it alright if i use digital images of my process and of my final collage? all the actual materials and methods used are strictly analogue, i just don't have any analogue photos OF it yet and the final piece is much to big to scan.

    My very first Analog collage, inspired as I explain in details in my Tipster by Magritte's Surreal Paintings
    http://www.lomograph(…)os/15075175

    Here is the link to my album
    http://www.lomograph(…)ollage-work
    It includes : - photos of the making process for the Tipster - another collage work made from Analog pictures too [tribute to Dali] - and other digital collages from a previous series dedicated to Surrealism Masters, made out of my photos [Analog and Digital], as demonstration and Inspirational images attached the Tipster.

    Thank you and Good Luck Everyone !

    Hi, there! Here is my clever collage: The Photo Frame Collage Gift Box
    http://www.lomograph(…)lage-rumble

    Trying to submit the tipster ... but there is a problem with the lomography backend... when I push submit/preview ... I get this error : "Hey there!
    We’re sorry but this very page is broken at the moment. We suggest trying the cover of the community site, if this doesn’t work either you can still browse our Online Shop, visit our Facebook page, browse through our Tumblr Gallery or follow us on Twitter. We were notified about this issue and will fix it as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding.
    All the best, Lomography"

    Hope it will get fixed before the deadline expires.

    @gelibee Thanks for the tip. I tried it but still didn't work (with Chrome, Mozilla and Internet Explorer). However, I managed to find out what the problem was. The error occured when I selected the type of tipster and what it was about. I left those fields unselected and it worked! So I finally managed to submit my tipster! Yey!
