Congrats to the Lubitel Lovers Rumble Winners!

Hi everyone! Thanks to all who participated in the Lubitel Lovers Rumble. We were on the lookout for the most passionate, the seriously dedicated, the least expected, the pathologically random, and hardest of the hardcore Lubitel Lovers out there! And man, we found a ton of them!

Hi everyone! Thanks to all who participated in the Lubitel Lovers Rumble. We were on the lookout for the most passionate, the seriously dedicated, the least expected, the pathologically random, and hardest of the hardcore Lubitel Lovers out there! And man, we found a ton of them!

Winners were judged on

  • (1) how lovely, overall, their photos looked
  • (2) how their photos fit the stated “love theme” and
  • (3) how many themes they submitted photos for.

With this in mind, we combed through all of the entries and chose the following lineup of Lomo Romeos and Lubitel Lolitas: (note only one photo is displayed here even though their total submissions were considered for the prize choosing. To see all submissions from the rumble please visit the gallery)

One Grand Champion (Horizon Perfekt, 100 piggies, interview & personal gallery in the Lubitel book) -

janisthewanis

Three First Place Winners (LC-A+, 75 piggies, profile in Lubitel book)

drudolph

graefin

mephisto19

Six Runners Up (50 piggypoints)

And, of course, all of these winners – and every other entry that was submitted – will be considered for publication in our upcoming Lubitel book. Stay tuned – it will be hot off the presses soon!

Regards,
Mike

    I bought a lubital because of the rumble - I don't know how i lived before! the shots that people entered were absolutely stunning - some of the best stuff i have ever seen - not just on lomography but in general - cant wait for the book

    @ferro_ud it could fit in to strange love, you know, an unnatural obsession with telegraph poles or birds on wires... ........or it could be because it is tough love, its a telegraph pole with birds on it - big deal some would say - but when a shot like that comes along its hard not to see the love. im not a smart man and im sure there are several reasons as to why this is a well composed shot. For me i just said YES!!!
