The Urban Nomad Competition

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!

Lomography and Urban Outfitters announce a new worldwide photo contest. 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:

  1. Where you went and how you got there
  2. What you did and what you saw
  3. 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!

    I'm a bit confused... sorry... am I right when I say that one can only upload one shot per category (i.e. 3 per week) and should these shots be related to each others (to make sort of a story) or can it be in totally different locations?
    Sorry for the questions but I'd rather ask before uploading....
    Thanks!

    You can upload five images for each theme every week: here's a copy/paste from the guidelines: "A maximum of five images can be submitted to each theme every week. After the week closes, and the weekly prizes are awarded, you can submit five more images the following week."

    winners will be picked by an esteemed panel of judges from Lomography and Urban Outfitters, based on complex formulas and algorithms that would melt your brain if you knew them!

    ok, not really... but yes, there are esteemed judges, and yes getting lots of positive votes will help... but it's more about the views/votes ratio, so it's not necessary to submit all your shots on the first day to get more views, or pimp yourself out for positive feedback... hope that helps!

    good luck!

    I can't login to the submission page... not with my old lomography username (Anarchy) and not with the new beta site login name (lomodocteur) either... I get different errors depending on which username I try with... =/

    @anarchy: I heard you wanted your account to be renamed to "anarchy", logging with that username should work.

    You can also use your email address as login so you don't have to remember your user name.
