Lomography and Portlandia want you to Put A Bird On It!


We put a bird on this competition!

To celebrate the second season of the fantastic IFC show, Portlandia, we’ve teamed up with IFC to get everyone in a Portlandia Frame Of Mind.

We want to see your very best photos featuring birds – Flying, stealing your dinner, multiple exposed on photos of other birds, landing precariously on Portlandia logos… get your analogue eye on the sky!

Let’s talk about the prizes! 5 lucky winners will get their hands on some great Portlandia gear!

1 Grand Prize Winner

1 Lomography LomoKino with LomoKinoscope
1 Portlandia Prize pack featuring Season One on Blu-Ray and DVD and a limited edition shirt and beanie!

2 Runners Up

20 piggie points
1 Portlandia Season One on Blu-Ray and DVD

2 Honorable Mentions

There’s some excellent prizing; an easy to shoot theme and the world is on a wire to see you literally Put A Bird On It!

    @cheriesavoie @kamharrisphoto
    Right above the this comments thread you should see a title that says enter this competition and below that there is a stream of photos from your lomohome, click on the photo and click the submit button.
    Let me know if you are still having trouble.
