Seoul All Around You Competition

2011-10-31 17

The bustling and ever evolving city of Seoul is one of the most beautiful places on earth – Take part in this fantastic competition in association with the Seoul Metropolitan Government and you could win a trip there and see for yourself!

A constantly evolving metropolis, Seoul, the capital city of the Republic of Korea, is a Lomographer’s playground . Lomography, together with the Seoul Metropolitan Government, want to share the majesty of this hidden city through a series of exciting competitions – Welcome to the Seoul All Around You Competition!

Seoul can’t just be found in Seoul, it can be found everywhere. For the first stage of the competition, we want you to go out into your city and find a taste of the city wherever you can. It could be a Korean restaurant, some friends training at your local Taekwondo club, your friendly Korean neighbors waving good morning – even a Hyundai car racing down the street! Seoul is everywhere; it’s up to you to find it. So come on and submit your best Seoul-inspired photos!

If you’ve been to Seoul before, now is also the time to geotag your photos and send in your best LomoLocations, about the city – They could be part of the Lomography City Guide Seoul due to be released in 2012! You can read more about submitting a LomoLocation here

Prizing

For each stage of the contest, there will be 1 grand prize winner who wins a trip for 2 persons to Seoul and a special Seoul edition La Sardina camera (due to be released in 2012). These trips include a minimum stay of 5 nights in Seoul; return flights; airport transfers, as well as hotel accommodation. There will also be 9 runners-up who will each win a Seoul edition La Sardina camera!

    @everyone Don't forget to geotag your pictures (www.lomography.com/magazine/nearby) to have a chance to win the prizes. And perhaps even turn them into LomoLocations so some day they can be part of a Lomography City Guide!

    How do i submit my photo to this competition? What do you mean by "Make sure that they are relevant to the (sub-category) themes, and upload them to the correct sub-category!" ??

    Does that just means tagging the picture?
    I have already uploaded my photo to the lab. But it's not appearing under the submission page. Am I suppose to wait for page update or what?

    I saw that contestants should be not over 19 y.o. but what if I am 18 y.o. in my country and already 19 in Korea? I was born in 1993 October.
    Could I still participate?

    I saw that contestants that are under 19 y.o. are not allowed, but what if I am 18 y.o. in my country and already 19 in Korea? I was born in 1993 October. Could I still participate? (sorry for the double post)

    @agnie, it is important that you are 19 years old when you would go on a trip to Seoul in the beginning of 2011

    @chineboy359 It is important that you only update pictures that would fit to the competition theme. You don't have the tag the theme of the picture, we only want you to geotag the pictures so we know where you shot the photo. If the location is in Seoul, we might even include it in our Lomography Seoul City Guide next year. Did you try to upload your pictures via: seoul.lomography.com/submit/seoul-all-around-you
