'What My Lomo Compact Automat Means to Me' Rumble ended over 2 years ago

To celebrate another addition to the ever growing family of Lomography cameras, particularly the LC-A family, we would like to invite you to this rumble where we ask what your LC-A means to you.

Photo by ripsta

You can’t go wrong with the LC-A. Oozing with awesomeness, this quality camera is a testament to how fun shooting photographs (or lomographs) can be. And over the course of almost three decades, we have seen quite a number of delicious designs. Our latest addition, the LC-A+ Silver Lake, is a stylish one and will definitely knock your socks off!

In celebration of the LC-A+ Silver Lake and LC-A’s heritage of 28 gloriously analogue years (and counting), we ask: what does your LC-A mean to you? We want you to submit one photo showing your love for the camera that started the Lomo revolution. You can use any camera from the LC-A family (LC-A, LC-A+, LC-A+ RL, and even the LC-Wide). Also, write a short description as to why you love the LC-A and what it means to you. We will choose one grand winner and three runner-ups.

Details:

  • Prizes: 1 grand winner of 20 Piggies and 3 winners of 10 Piggies each
  • Film/Camera Type: Analogue photo not digitally enhanced or manipulated.
  • Photo must be in shot using the LC-A, LC-A+, LC-A+ RL, or the LC-Wide
  • Upload limit: 1 photo only
  • Minimum Photo Dimensions: Submissions must be at least 768px in either width or height
  • Meta data must be complete: Camera, film, location, 3 tags
  • Keep in mind the theme “What does your LC-A mean to you?”
  • Do not forget to write a description answering the theme question.
  • Deadline of submission is on March 20, 2012.

    Lomo LC-A is great for me to capture the decisive moment in a colorful way, as in my photo taken during my bicycle touring in Swizerland!

    Lightweight, pocket-sized, always ready at any time, day and night. LC-A for me is Freedom! And can turns the ordinary into the extraordinary.

    As a Lomographer I'm not looking for perfection, but it is the perfect camera for all occasions! Compact, subtle and fast; the LC-A is the epitome of Lomography.

    The LC-A+ is so easy to use, it frees my mind to go experimenting and trying new compositions, rather than having to figure out how to operate the camera "properly"

    Hi guys, Ive submitted a photo for this competition but i didn't put "what the LC-A means to you" in the description. So, i've left it in the comment section for that photo. Is it alright?

    the LC-Wide to me is the camera that lets me capture the most unforgettable moments in my life- those most precious, most dear to me. The people, things, places; the moments.

    the LC-A was the first camera i bought ever! end of the 90s i wanted to document everything that happened to me and this camera was just perfect. it changed my life and i´m not kidding. even in times when digital was something anyyone and his mother did i pulled out my LC-A at a wedding or the birth of my son. and: it never let me down. even my girlfriend was infected by my lomo-virus. but later on she went on to digital and let me do the analogue part. and i´m happy with my role.

    LC-W - to me is an inspiration. It takes away my breath in every picture. A long lomowalk alone with my LC-W is one of the way that can cheer me up when im feeling down. so yeah, basically, LC-W has become a part of my life and i love it!

    You do not have to explain what the LC-A means to you. The LC-A explains it all by itself by showing the world through their eyes.
