Explosions in the Sky Rumble

6

Get ready your light grenades and your camera of choice because we’re setting the skies on fire with our Explosions in the Sky rumble. Read on to find out more…

Alright, I was really excited in using one of my favorite band’s name for this rumble. It seemed perfect since our newest Diana F+ clone, the Diana F+ Cai Guo-Qiang has just been released and this rumble is in theme with his early work Projects for Extraterrestrial, which, according to Wikipedia, consisted of using large fireworks and extensive trails of blazing gunpowder that span across landscapes and building surfaces.

East River, from Manhattan to Queens, New York, USA – 2002

So what we would like you to do is submit photos of fireworks or any form of bursts of light in the sky. The three best photos will win a booming prize of 10 Piggies each! Let’s get it on!

Details:

  • Prize(s): 3 winners of 10 piggies each. All winners will receive a special award badge straight to their LomoHomes.
  • Film/Camera Type: Any analogue photo not digitally enhanced or manipulated
  • Upload Limit: 2 photos
  • Minimum Photo Dimensions: Submissions must be at least 768px.
  • Meta data must be completed (camera, film, location & 3 tags).
  • Deadline of submission is on April 5, 2012.

Don’t forget to check the fresh new Diana F+ Cai Guo-Qiang! Available at the shop.
