MOVEMBER with LoMOgraphy
Movember is the month formerly known as November, where men and women across the globe join together to raise awareness and funds for men’s health issues. We have events and workshops all month so you can get involved to help raise awareness for this cause. It’s time to grow that mo!
Month-long ‘Grow that Mo’ challenge
We are calling out to six brave chaps to step up and volunteer to grow their mo’s! We will hand out a Diana Mini camera with flash and a roll of film to each and all you need to do is take one self-portrait a day for 31 days to document the growth of your moustache! We will then use the images and make a stop motion mini-movie featuring your glorious new, itchy mo! The best, bushiest one gets to keep the camera as a prize!
This is free and is on a first come, first served basis. Please book in and come in store to collect the camera between Oct 24-31. You must be ready and willing to commit totally to this project – no chickens allowed!
UPDATE: THE GROW YOUR MO CHALLENEGE IS NOW FULLY BOOKED AND WE HAVE 10 CONTENDERS FOR THE BIGGEST BUSHIEST MO GROW. STAY TUNED IN THE FIRST WEEKS OF DECEMBER FOR THE WINNER – all other events are still open so book in advance to avoid missing out!
