Hey everyone! We got your submissions and they're great. However, we would want to clarify a few things first and give you updates on how you can make it into our Top 10 shortlist!
Greetings, aspiring journalists! We’ve received and noted of your submissions to our Interview With a Photographer Series and frankly, we think they’re great! Our beat reporters are going through all of your entries as we speak as we’re slowly narrowing down the interviews that will make the cut and will be published. However, we do have a couple of points of clarification so that we’re all on the same page:
- We want to see and hear the thoughts of people from all walks of photography life. They could be a world famous photographer like Annie Liebovitz, or the 80 year old staff photographer from your small hometown newspaper. You guys don’t have to limit yourselves to Lomographers.
- My Friend… posts, although cool, aren’t exactly what we’re looking for. Think out of the box! If you see a Magnum photographer street-shooting, try to approach him and exchange a few words! You can also discuss the intricacies of B&W development with the professor in the university. You can track down one of the people from Polaroid and muse about the future of instant photography. The more out of this world, the better!
- Don’t worry about about the fate of your “My Friend…” submissions though! We will be featuring all of your dialogues with your fellow Lomographers soon all by their glorious selves in a week long community driven extravaganza! It’s a great and perfect time to get to know all of your fellow Lomographers!
We hope that clears things a bit more clearly. If you do have more questions, just let us know! For now, you can check out again the guidelines for submission.
