Capture The Moment Competition: 15th May 2013 15:15:15 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!

At exactly 15 seconds past 15 minutes past 15:00 CET time on 15th 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 15th at 15:15:15 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. Join us for the fun at this special time! For all customers in stores at this exact moment, we’ll be offering free cameras to borrow so you can capture your photographic moment and enter the competition; plus you can get 15% off your purchase (valid on everything in the store*) at 15:15:15 CET.

*Excluding films & services (Lab & workshops). Not valid on already reduced items or bundles.

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 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 15:15:15 on the 15th May 2013 – Please submit honestly!
  • You may submit only 1 photo only
  • The rumble will open at 15:15:15 on the 15th May and run until June 10th to give you time to get your special photo developed

    I can't believe that people upload fake pics already???!!! Look the date??!!! Why this?! I think that the people or are stupid because don't understand the rulez of the game or maybe not are honest! That pics in my opinion must be delete by lomography's judges from this competition! Sorry but the rulez are rulez! You must have respect, for the rules and for the honest lomographers!!!

    Yes! I was the last, but I made it! Gotta say, submissions with comments from 10 months ago were not taken the same moment as mine, I'm sure. It's a pitty people aren't honest just for 5 piggies but anyway, great rumble, can't wait to see the video! Lomo on!

    @robotmonkey1996 - You got 15 since we awarded you 5 Piggies for each of the 3 competition entries. In the prizing section we said 'Not only 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.'. So when we release the top 10 winning entries, you could get an additional 25 Piggies if you are selected. Thanks
