The Great Lomo LC-A Race: Locations Primer


Before you all get started and run around the city shooting like a madman, here are some guidelines first on what to shoot and how to win the big race and 100 Piggy Points to your account!

As you’ve probably read already, you will be required to write at least 3 locations from the pictures that you took with the provided Lomo LC-A – but taking more locations than the required will up your ante of winning an individual 100 Piggy Points

We will be having 10 Location ‘Stages’ indicated by the simultaneous open call of a new Race Mission (rumble) where we will be picking individual stage winners based on submitted Locations during the stage:

  • Number of Locations published
  • Quality of Locations
  • Remoteness of Locations (in comparision to your location)
  • Completeness of Location Metadata and narrative

The stage winner will be receiving an individual 100 Piggy Points. Our stage winners will be hand-picked by our Lomo LC-A Race Jury made of LomoStaff and Users alike, and the announcement will take 2 to 3 weeks after each stage has been completed.

Each published (and approved) Location is worth 5 Piggy Points so assuming you’ve submitted 3 full Location posts you get 15 Piggy Points, plus an extra 5 Piggy Points for approved submissions in excess.

Remember to turn on your GPS tracking device while shooting for these Locations.

Please check out the GPS Software download link here And the accompanying help section on how to operate the GPS unit. Further details will follow soon as to how you could upload the GPS location data.

Please provide a Location of the following before turning the camera to your next teammate:

  • Urban adventures – a place of interest in a city (market, mall, stadium)
  • Jewels of the city – a famous place in the city (church, museum, square, etc)
  • Night & Music Delirium – some place to go out (party, concert hall, any site for pleasure)

How do you submit these Locations, you say? Check out our brief below:

Please tag your Location submissions accordingly (along with other descriptives):

Lomo LC-A Race

urban adventures (if the submission falls under the ‘Urban Adventures’ category)
city (if the submission falls under the ‘Jewels of the City’ category)
night and music (if the submission falls under the Night & Music Delirium category)

Locations should follow our 5-photo minimum submission rule for them to be approved.

Please also make sure to ‘pin’ your country at our submission page. The country/city will copy on to the input box, then click ‘find on map’ until a red pointer appears. After such, you are now ready to submit your Location!

Finally, submit your location and wait for them to be checked and published thoroughly.
