Berlin City Rumble - Just Another Pic in the Wall Rumble


“Berlin´s the new Paris” I was recently told. But I think it has it´s very own charme. Show off your photos of a modern, historical or simply color crazed capital city!

Here ´s another great opportunity to have your photo up on an official, giant Lomowall! Introduce Berlin from your perspective and soon there will be a Berlin Lomowall that will be a mecca for Berliners and world travelers alike. Be a part of it! Submit your photos now!

So here’s what we’re looking for:

  • Portraits of typical Berlin People, but don’t hold back on the freaks!
  • Shots of typical landmarks – Brandenburg Gate , Parliament, Berliner Stadtschloss, TV tower, Alexanderplatz, Rotes Rathaus (City Hall), Neptunbrunnen, Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, The Rathaus Schöneberg, where John F. Kennedy made his famous “Ich bin ein Berliner!” speech,… show us around!
  • Berlin fireman, police, security men, other people in uniforms – let us see Berlin’s finest in all their glory!
  • Typical Berlin shop facades – the face of the city. Ku’Damm, Tauentzienstraße, …
  • Berlin Nightife and Music – from the Berlin State Opera to the world famous Kitkatclub – what´s a typical night in Berlin alike?
  • Berlin construction – Building by building, the city is always changing, and we want to see how it’s happening!
  • Berlin East and West – for 28 years the city was divided by a wall. Is that town still separated into East and West 20 years after the wall fell?
  • Berlins traffic – Subway, “S-Bahn”, Cabs, and a whole lot of cars. How do people in Berlin get from A to B
  • Photo formats – Landscape, square, Horizon

And here’s a little tip… we’re hoping you will tag your photos so we can find them easily in our archives. Yeah, we know we’re putting you to work here. But if you could be so kind as to go to your beta home after you’ve uploaded and tag your photos with the categories above (and anything else that would make your photo easier to find later) we’ll be very grateful. We may even throw a few extra piggies at anyone who shows some serious tagging initiative! We’re sure to look a little longer at your photos if you do (hint hint).

  • Prize(s): 5 piggy points for each uploader whose pictures are used for the lomowall
  • Film/Camera Type: Any analogue photo not digitally enhanced or manipulated
  • Upload Limit: Unlimited
  • Minimum Photo Dimensions: 1200×1800 pixels for standard landscape format / 1500×1500 for medium format
  • Previous rumble submissions can be entered again for this rumble.
  • The winner announcement will take a few months instead of the two-week ultimatum for this rumble.
  • By submitting your photos to this rumble, you allow Lomography to use your submitted photos for promotional purposes.

    Check out the "Berlin" album in my lomohome, filled with Berlin-goodness! Still doing some tagging and putting extra info with the pictures. And I will, of course, submit them. In the meantime I've uploaded a 'Berlin review' in lomolocations, hope that one gets through. Tschüss!
