S-E-O-U-L Competition


Just because you haven’t been to Seoul doesn’t mean you haven’t experienced the spirit of the city. We want to see your images of anything featuring the letters which make up the word S-E-O-U-L! Take part and you could win a trip for 2 to South Korea and special edition La Sardina cameras!

For the last stage of the Seoul All Around You Competition, we want you to think S-E-O-U-L. These are the letters that make up the name of the fabulous city. We want you to submit any pictures that include any of these 5 letters! It could be a giant ‘S’ on a billboard in your city or that graffiti-sprayed ‘L’ you walk past on your way home. It doesn’t matter where you find it – shoot it and submit it. The more creative the better!

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


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!
