Capture The Moment Competition: 13th May 2013 13:13:13 CET ended over 1 year ago

The essence of photography is about capturing those special moments, those instants where time stands still and an image is perfectly framed in front of your eyes. As Lomographers, we are especially in tune with these unique times in life. We love to forget the rules, ditch the viewfinder and snap those special times as they flash before our eyes. Well for this rumble, that’s exactly what we are you to do. In the month of May, we have picked 3 exact moments where we want Lomographers around the world to stop and take an analogue photo! And of course, we have some awesome prizes on offer for the best entries!

Photo by upic

At exactly 13 seconds past 13 minutes past 13:00 CET time on 13th May, we are asking you to stop what you’re doing and take an analogue photo of life buzzing along beside you. We want to see what the weather is like in Bangladesh, the young mother pushing her pram down the sidewalk in Turin, the car passing your window in London, your brother eating his breakfast across the table from you in Paris; wherever you are and whatever is happening, join us in this magical project and take a photo on the 13th at 13:13:13 CET (that’s Vienna time). Don’t worry, we’ll be counting down to the moment on the website and on social media to remind you when the time is coming!

We are relying on your honesty here folks, since from the photos submitted to this competition, we want to create an exciting video summing up this very moment in time across the globe. So please only submit photos taken at this exact time to the competition!

Gallery Store Specials

We will also be celebrating this occasion in Lomography Gallery Stores worldwide. So join us for the fun at this special time! For all customers in stores at this exact moment, we’ll be offering some special surprises for people who join!

The Prizes

So what’s in it for you? (besides having the chance for your photo to be featured in a very cool video of course). Well we have some top-notch Piggy Point prizes to hand out for taking part. Not only we will we reward every entry with 5 Piggies to spend in the shop, we will also give 25 extra Piggies for our top 10 photo entries.

The Rules

  • Please only submit photos taken at exactly 13:13:13 on the 13th May 2013 – Please submit honestly!
  • You may submit only 1 photo only
  • The rumble will open at 13:13:13 on the 13th May and run until June 10th to give you time to get your special photo developed

    Couple of questions: 1) Is i13:13:13 local time? If not, the clock might look a bit funny? 2) When do you have to upload the pics by? Takes a while to develop etc etc Sounds like fun though.

    @checkmybadself - 1) No its 13:13:13 Central European Time, thats why we have the counter at the top and this site http://microsites.lo(…)the-moment/ to help you know when to take the photo :-) - 2) You have until June 10th to upload your photo
