“One is the loneliest number”

This is what everyone usually thinks of this digit, while there are those who would like to believe that this also have a very positive meaning and refuse to accept its definition that’s commonly synonymous to isolation. Indeed, this is one of the things currently mused upon by us, especially now that we’re on a calendar that progressively falls on a date resetting back to the prime number one: 11.11.2011

Still, this number have a lot of different connotations for everyone – it could be your pet cat, your loving wife or even your worst enemy that lives next door– all of which you consider number one! And these kind of shots are what we’re looking for this showdown!

Please take note of the minor changes regarding the details for this contest below

  • Prize(s): Jury’s choice will receive 15 Piggies and a badge while the Community’s choice will have a very special badge to be pinned in their LomoHome
  • Film/Camera Type: Any analogue photo not digitally enhanced or manipulated. Please keep in mind of our ‘Your Number One’ theme.

    @fookshit: the upload limit is set at 10 pictures, but the text says 1. Maybe you should fix that, I already see several people who've uploaded more than one pic...

    It's unfair to see more than 1 submissions from other lomographers when I could only submit one picture :(

    @megustastu don't you worry, only one of their submission will be considered for the showdown :)

    I'm one of the people who submitted more than 1 photo (oops).. My bad... I'm just curious to know how are you gonna choose the 1 photo of the people who did submit more than one?

    @rjk_89 well, it's up to the jury what will they pick and depends on community which one they would like! ~_^

    you should ask them to choose the one they want to keep and to remove the others! it's easier, and more polite ;)

    I don't like all this, the most amount of likes system. In other comps like that it ends up being a popularity contest. The one who knows the most people on here will win. There is nothing about which photo is best!
