2013-03-11 9

In honor of Troma’s upcoming TromaDance Film Festival celebrating truly independent filmmaking, we want to see your photos inspired by the classic American movie studio. From mutants, blood and toxic waste, show us your most horrifically-themed photos for a chance to win some sick prizes!

Troma is one of the oldest and most interesting independent film studios in the United States. They are responsible for such films as “Poultrygiest, Night of the Chicken Dead” and “The Toxic Avenger.” Troma was established in 1974 by Yale friends Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz. Lloyd Kaufman is the Co-founder and president of the production company. For almost forty years, Kaufman and Troma Entertainment have influenced mainstream popular culture and cinema.

Now, we want you to show us your best photographs that embody the Troma style. Dress you friends up as you favorite horror flick characters or set the mood and shoot come creepy landscapes. Need some inspiration? Take a look at Troma Entertainment’s amazing website here.

    hello @dougsakmann ! when you are on your lomohome page, you can upload photos in the "lab" tab (i see you have one already!). once uploaded, the photo(s) should appear at the end of this competition post where you can simply check the one you want to submit. let me know if this doesn't work though!

    I uploaded them to my 'lab' page but are not coming up on the competition post, maybe there is a link you can send me to?

    I guess the contest is over, I tried to enter yesterday but could not figure it out! If you could consider my uploads entered that would be amazing, it's the only reason I started an account on here...
