Together with Blue Tomato, one of the leading online shops for winter sports, trend sports, and streetwear, we requested to see your best freeskiing and snowboardig photos! You had two months to convince us of your athletic and photographic prowess. Now it's time to step on the podium and hand out the medals!
As judges for the Lomography x Blue Tomato: Hit the slopes! Contest we clicked through submissions from all over the world, and realized that snowboarding is by far your favorite winter sport — we didn’t find any freeskiiers at all, but that just means there were that many more awesome photos of you guys with your snowboards. Out of all the submissions, three photos really really caught our eye, and those photographers have certainly earned their great prizes from Blue Tomato!
The gold medal goes to masha_njam from Nürnberg, Germany, who created this perfect double exposure together with lomographer maximum_b. Will she share her prize with him? Either way, we congratulate her on receiving a 50 Euro gift certificate for the Blue Tomato online shop.
Second place and a silver medal goes to freshmeat_omd from Rome, Italy! On his first test-drive with his Minolta XD7 in the Abruzzi he took this great shot – we love not only the great colors, but also the prominent light leak effect. Congratulations, you win a BT Mist Snow Goggles from Blue Tomato in cooperation with Roxy!
And last but not least, we want to give the third place winner some love! A Bronze Medal goes to monkeydance from Linter in Belgium. You could almost confuse her wintery fisheye photo in black-and-white with a pencil sketch. Congratulations on a great picture and your prize: the Blue Tomato BT x Amplifi Stash 160 Board Bag, which is on its way to you!
Thanks to all participants for your fantastic entries! And we wish the winners lots of fun with their prizes.
Ciao for now… until the next contest!
