Prato Textile Museum: My Vintage is Competition

1

A long and interesting competition is waiting for you. Read on to discover its details and how to participate.

An exquisite exhibition, Vintage – The Irresistible Charm of Past, is about to take place in Prato, Italy.
In the Textile Museum, from December 7th, the concept of vintage will be explored in its various aspects.
The exhibition will end on May 30th and will be accompanied by a related photo contest, open to any type of photography: digital photos, scans or photos of old photos, photos taken with cell phones, photos taken by smartphone apps, pictures recomposed and, obviously, our beloved analogue photos. We have been asked to organize a call to action to all the Lomographic community.

The contest is promoted and takes place online, but involves physical space because the most popular photos will be printed and displayed at Prato Textile Museum in a special section of the exhibit.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE
You must upload your photo and fill out the form on the Official Exhibit Website.

THEME
It can be literally anything related to vintage – clothes, furniture, accessories; modeled or still life. Vintage is defined chronologically as something that is more than 20 years old.

What will be done with your photos
Your photo will be published on the Official Exhibit Website, along with your full name and the 140 characters description that you will write, once submitting the shot. The photo will be opened up to votes from the public and sharing on social media. The most voted will be printed and exhibited inside the museum.

The Competition will end the 29th of April at midnight.

PRIZES

  • Monthly prizes will be awarded to two photographers, whose pictures are the most voted by the public. These will be announced at the end of December 2012, January 2013, February 2013 and March 2013.

The prize is 10 piggies (=10 EUROS) to spend in our Online Shop:
1. Prize for the mosrt voted photo in the Lomography category;
2. Prize for the most voted photo overall (analogue or digital).

  • In April, 2 final winners will be announced – each one will receive one Lomography Camera.
  • Plus, the photo awarded with the prize Best Vintage Look will receive a Gift Certificate worth 500 euro for the website A.N.G.E.L.O. Vintage.

    How to Develop Photos on Stone in a Darkroom

    I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!

    Long Exposures Around Europe with the Minitar-1 Art Lens

    One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.
