Lomography + TOMS #BESHADY Rumble! ended about 1 year ago

This World Sight Day, #BESHADY with the good folks over at TOMS who are wearing their shades inside to raise awareness for visual impairment and global blindness. Submit photos for a chance to win some fantastic prizes and expand your Lomographic vision!

285 million people are visually impaired, but 80% of them don’t have to be. To help TOMS spread awareness about this statistic and World Sight Day, we’re asking Lomographers to submit their best and most inspirational photos. Throw on some shades indoors or show us what #BESHADY means to you. The friendly folks from TOMS will be choosing the winning photos, so make sure to wow them!

In case you’re not familiar with TOMS, here’s a snippet of their story: While traveling in Argentina in 2006, TOMS founder, Blake Mycoskie, witnessed the hardships faced by children growing up without shoes. Blake’s travel experience turned into the business idea that provided the foundation for TOMS. For every pair purchased, TOMS gives a pair of new shoes to a child in need. TOMS has given millions of pairs of new shoes to children since the company’s inception. In 2011, TOMS expanded their giving through TOMS Eyewear, where with every pair purchased, TOMS will help restore sight to a person in need. We’re pretty stoked to help them spread the news on their latest mission: WORLD SIGHT DAY. Go to toms.com/world-sight-day to get inspired.

And there’s more! Photos submitted in the first two weeks of the competition will be exhibited in the TOMS Flagship store in Venice, CA.

One Grand Prize Winner will receive:

    The only rumble which all the winner get at least one camera after Tori Amos rumble (correct me if I'm wrong). Hope this time there are no again hipstamatic or instagram photo that win this rumble & about the very late prize shipment. Haha, sorry I'm too fussy.

    @sashakoala: you should see some of your photos below the text, just above the likes. from there you can select your photos! please excuse me if I'm wrong but I think that's the easiest way to do it ;)

    besides, this is an awesome rumble! :D
