Lomography x TV Mania: Beautiful Clothes Competition!

2013-02-27 28

We’re excited to partner with TV Mania’s Nick Rhodes and Warren Cuccurullo, both of the famed band Duran Duran, to celebrate their first record! Check out more information after the jump to see how your fashion-themed photos could win you some sweet prizes and tunes!

Back in the mid-90s, Duran Duran's keyboardist and founding member Nick Rhodes and guitarist Warren Cuccurullo shared their vision of the future in an album called TV Mania: Bored with Prozac and The Internet?. The duo imagined the album as a “bizarre TV cyber soap opera” about a family who gives away their freedom to scientists in exchange for a hi-tech, modern lifestyle and reality show fame. Though the album was created long before the boom of the Internet and reality TV, the sounds and concept are undoubtedly contemporary.

The project was temporarily shelved as Duran Duran’s other projects took hold, and was thought to be even lost at one point. But lo and behold, Rhodes discovered the tapes in a storage facility and decided they were long overdue for a release. On March 11, 2013, the TV Mania project will finally be released worldwide on gatefold vinyl and a limited edition box set as well as digitally through The Orchard/Beatport.

To celebrate TV Mania’s release, we’re having a rumble in honor of one of its awesome tracks, “Beautiful Clothes” (click here to listen). Sift through your closet and analog photos to show us what you think the best threads are. Whether it’s a self-portrait of you in your favorite shirt or a funky street style shot, we wanna see em’!

    Analogue being film-based photography, not digital, right?

    LOVE the TVMania release - Beautiful Clothes, Euphoria, I Want To Make Films, et al! From START to FINISH, an avant-garde, cinematic audio feast for the ears. It begs to be set to theatrical performance on Broadway and/or artistically interpreted in film noir.

    I ordered one of the boxed sets from The Vinyl Factory - can't wait to get it! I'm having the most fun with Polaroid photography now. The "click-grind" of that camera body makes me weak in the knees.

    @angelab_log - Any idea when this winners for this contest (or any contest for that matter) are chosen. I'm new to Lomography.com. Your FAQ section is terribly long to wade through. Also contest rules are not very clear it seems?! -Thanks for your response to this. -ReNoirIN

    hello @renoirin ! we're hoping to announce the winners next week. unfortunately this competition has closed but there are many others on this site for you to win some awesome cameras. we usually require that the photos come from any analog camera and are not digitally manipulated of course. we keep the themes pretty broad to encourage some creative submissions and interpretations--so anything related to clothes here would have worked! let me know of any other questions.
