Love Unexpected September - Labor of Love ended almost 2 years ago

What do you do for work? Is it something that you live for or are you yearning for another vocation? Let us know through your photos and you can win an exclusive La Sardina camera!

As the oft-quoted line from the movie ‘300’ goes, “What is your profession?” While some people detest the very idea of working, there is a sense of accomplishment and personal satisfaction attached to it that simply cannot be replicated. Whether you’re doing something simple like flipping burgers or running a whole country as the president, there needs to be pride in your work.

This month, we want to see the work you love or at the very least, the job you aspire to have. We at Lomography and our hardworking friends from Virginia is for Lovers will be judging this rumble and we will be giving away ten limited edition ‘Virginia is for Lovers’ cameras. Good luck!

More about the Competition

Details:

  • 10 VTC ‘Virginia is for Lovers’ cameras
  • Film/Camera Type: Any analogue photo not digitally enhanced or manipulated.
  • Upload Limit: 10 photos
  • Minimum Photo Dimensions: Submissions must be at least 768px in either width or height.
  • Meta data must be completed (camera, film, location & 3 tags)

If you want the camera in your hands now and don’t want to wait for the winner announcements, you can purchase your own limited edition Virginia is for Lovers camera while supplies last!

    Hey @laurasulilly , i had the same problem with the same month of competitions :) I was very agitated and i completely lost interest in Lomo competitions because of it, but i got in touch with a gentleman called Andreas, and he was very swift to respond and very helpful- turns out my package got lost and they reimbursed me with a small piggy bank :) try it out, his email is andreas.bischoff@lomography.com

    @jasiehasie: Thank you so much! I shall try it. This is the second time i had to wait more than 6 months for a camera I won on here. I'm not taking part in competitions anymore, it's no fun to be told you have won a camera and then they just wait for it to dwindle away so they don't need to award the prizes...or so it seems.

    Just follow up @walasiteodito @laurasulilly , they cant always keep track on shipments, i was frustrated beyond myself, but this chap gave me a substantial amount of piggies and a humble apology, i ordered, and three days later my package arrived :) Maybe check your local post office as well, just in case :)

    @jasiehasie, @walasiteodito : Ah thank you so much for all your efforts, I wish LSI would be like you :) No one has ever answered my requests, and I wrote this Andreas guy like you suggested and he hasn't replied either. So I guess I'm never getting my camera (btw, checking my local post office is of no use given that I have no idea if and when they've sent the package since April, and also I have to say I don't see why they can't keep track of their shipments when they use GLS - a very expensive shipping service indeed- and that they can't even tell when and where they ship? I doubt that, honestly. I think LSI just forgot about me for the second time but I can't tell why they don't bother...)

    @laurasulilly nope, still no, but someone emailed me regarding the competition and asking my address and telephone number so they can ship it immediately. So i guess i just have to patiently wait :)
