Lomography and "Urban Outfitters":http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/urban/index.jsp?cm_mmc=Lomo-_-Urban%20Nomad-_-lomo-_-link announce a "new worldwide photo contest":http://urbannomad.lomography.com. Show your Urban Nomad lifestyle with your very finest analog snapshots. Over 45 Lomographic cameras will be awarded!
The Grand Champion’s image will receive $1000, a stuffed box of Lomography treasures, and will have their image turned into photographic wall art!
On the road.
And off the road.
In the air and on the sea.
Underground, round the block, over the hills, and far away.
Whether you’re traveling to the ends of the Earth or the end of the block, we want to see an analog photographic documentary of your comings and goings – and a lot of solid reasons for why the hell you left your doorstep in the first place.
Over the next three weeks, you’ve got three different avenues to document your rambling lifestyle:
- Where you went and how you got there
- What you did and what you saw
- Who you went with and who you met
At the end of each week, we’ll announce 15 winners, 5 for every category. The winners will each receive a shiny new Lomographic camera or an Urban Outfitters gift voucher. With three weeks of competition, that’s 45 prizes to be given away!
From these 45 award-winning snapshots, one Grand Champion will be chosen to be awarded with: a $1,000 cash prize, their winning image turned into photographic wall art for sale at urbanoutfitters.com, and a stuffed box of Lomography treasures.
You’ve got to use an analog camera (one that takes film), get hi-resolution scans of your image, and upload it to the competition site – thereby illustrating the three “Urban Nomad” themes. Each week, you can use a “featured” Lomographic camera for a better shot at winning!
The Contest will run from:
August 21st, 2008 – September 14th, 2008
(all submissions from the 20th will be counted as part of the first week)
Get Out of the House and Get Going! Get the full contest details and upload your very finest snapshots (film only!) of your travels by plane, train, automobile, foot, bike, skateboard, helicopter, or hovercraft at Urban Nomad!
