Lomography & Off Track Planet Want to Send You On A Mystery Trip!

2012-08-07 48

Want to see the world? Want to see the world with a bag of cameras, and a ticket to somewhere on planet Earth? Share your Travel Porn with us and you could win the mystery trip of a lifetime!

We’ve teamed up with the hippest travel site out there, Off Track Planet, to bring you an opportunity like no other!

We’re going to send one lucky grand prize winner on a mystery trip, loaded with Lomography cameras and film, to be the Lomography Travel Reporter, with the lodging and flights paid for! The best part… you don’t even get to know where you’d go yet (don’t worry, we definitely won’t send you to the country you already live in)!

Sound good? Let’s talk about what you need to do to win!

Submit your absolute best analogue “Travel Porn” (think ‘food porn’, y’all) photos to this competition, dig out your passport and cross your fingers!

That’s right! You get to submit up to 10 of your very best photos from the places you’ve traveled to before, and they might just win you a mystery trip!

1 Grand Prize:

9 Runner Up Prizes:

  • (1) Copy of the forthcoming book: Off Track Planet’s Guide to Travel for the Young, Sexy & Broke (Apr 2013)
  • (1) Fisheye Baby Basic 110 Camera

Of course there are a few rules, make sure you play by them, so we don’t have to award this trip to someone else!


  • Film/Camera Type: Shots from any kind of film / analog camera are eligible – standard 35mm or 120 format preferred, not digitally enhanced or manipulated.
  • Minimum Photo Dimensions: Submissions must be at least 768px in either width or height, though larger dimensions are welcome.
  • No visible borders or watermarks, etc..
  • Winners should be able to travel in September/October 2012, and have all the documents necessary to travel, including authorizations of any kind. All entrants, particularly minors, are responsible for ensuring their submission is in compliance with the legal requirements of their country.

    @alexandrak @cruzron @icequeenubia @soundfoodaround @antoniocastello @shhquiet Hi all! It's been quite a long time since this contest ended, and there has been no winner announcement. Can you please provide an update, even if it turns out that this contest was cancelled? Any information would be appreciated. Thank you!

  48. brendamanthe
    brendamanthe ·

    @alexandrak @mindofmyra @icequeenubia Hi again. Can we please get an update on this contest? Even if it was cancelled? I think that it's only fair to provide closure to those who entered...we all spend our time and money to enter these (even though we're all having fun!). It's frustrating when contests just die or when prizes aren't sent out. Thanks in advance, and I'm eagerly awaiting your reply.
