We have a massive competition for you to participate in. If you love analogue as much as we do, this is the perfect opportunity to show your creativity! We are looking for the craziest, zaniest, most bombastically brilliant videos which capture the joys of analogue or your mission to take a break from digital. Trust us, you don’t want to miss this rumble as we have 50 BIG prizes to treat our winners with! Head past the jump for full details!
Since the My Analogue Life Video Contest closed, we have checked through all the entries and want to start by thanking everyone who took the time to submit a video – There are some very creative and fun examples of what you guys in the community are capable of!
However, we believe that there was a misunderstanding over the types of video entries we were looking for. Many people seem to have thought we were looking for LomoKino videos or longer, more polished digital videos. This is NOT the case – This competition was a call-out for any kind of video, and we were hoping for tons of very short, funny digitally shot videos captured on devices such as smartphones. We were looking for more ‘quick and dirty’ digital videos which demonstrate your love for analogue in funny, interesting and unique ways. We were not looking for LomoKino movies in particular since we realize that these take a lot of time to produce; we were looking for videos which you could shoot in a few minutes with friends and then upload straight away. This is because, with all the videos we receive, we want to then create a big video showing all the funniest clips of Lomographers living analogue.
We want to say sorry that this concept was not more clearly explained whilst the rumble was ongoing, but now want to re-open the competition for a further 2 months to give loads more people the chance to enter. Firstly, we want to promise right off that everyone who took part in the rumble so far will be rewarded for their efforts – In fact, we will give every entrant so far 10 Piggy Points for the Online Shop, and you will then be eligible for any of the prizes too (so you are still definitely in with a chance of the grand prize); you are also of course free to submit new entries to improve your chance of winning, we just want to give the rest of the community some more time to show us their inspiration. The new competition end date is August 1st 2013.
Being analogue isn’t just about 1 day a year – It’s a state of mind which we can in fact follow daily or even at any given moment. So, for this competition, we are looking for you to submit a video of you doing something which takes your love for analogue to the extreme!
For a competition this crazy, we also have some extra cool prizes on offer! We have prizes for 50 talented video-makers. Firstly, our 1 Grand Prize Winner will get:
- 365 rolls of film* so you can stay analogue every day of the year
- A totally unique LC-A+ camera with your choice of leather
- An analogue turntable
Our 2nd – 5th place winners will get 100 rolls* of Lomography film each
Our 6th – 15th place winners will get 50 Piggy Points each to spend in the Lomography Online Shop.
Our 16th – 50th place winners will get 25 Piggy Points each to spend in the Lomography Online Shop.
Perhaps you’re a rock star who has taken their hotel room antics to a new level and decides to throw a whole bunch of 21st century gadgets out of the window. Maybe you would like to show your love for analogue by covering the entire floor of your house in film cartridges and cameras. Perhaps you’d like to build a Rube Goldberg machine which demonstrates the entire analogue photography process from loading the film to producing analogue prints (we would soooo love to see this!). These are, of course, just a few sample ideas; we are really looking for out-of-the-box, crazy, funny and outrageous videos here!
We want to be surprised and captivated by your videos and that’s why we won’t limit you with too many rules for this competition. Your video can be any length. It can be shot on a Smartphone, video camera or, naturally, the LomoKino – Before you guys point it out, we do see the irony in shooting a video which shows the analogue life using a hi-tech digital camcorder; but we see this as half the fun of the rumble idea!
- Your video should capture your analogue life in a funny/clever/interesting/exciting/captivating/crazy way
- The video can be any length
- You can shoot your video using either digital or analogue
- If you feature music in your video, please make sure you have the rights to use it.
- Lomography cannot be held responsible for the consequences of any overly-crazy analogue ideas.
