The LC-Wide Race: An Instant Throwback

2013-09-05

Since it’s Throwback Thursday today, why not take the opportunity and reminisce of the good old days? And since we’re warming up the coming LC-Wide Race, then we would love to tell you the story of how it all began!

Around four years ago, we had The Great LC-A Race, a worldwide analogue race between 10 teams of 10 Lomographers. The idea sounded like a riot knowing how many Lomographers have to pass that classic analogue camera around the world. But hey, it was a fun and glorious one!

And really, who’s the mind behind this idea? Well ladies and gentlemen, we have got to give credit to LomoHome mattcharnock for pitching in this project which the Lomography Staff liked and made come true!

“A race that involves writing, shipping, and of course a series of Lomography quizzes and pictorials done throughout a period of time” was the gist of the LC-A Race. And with the help and support of this Community, it was a great success!

Now it’s time for the LC-Wide to take its spotlight and have its own competition! Just a few jumps and we’re almost there, fellas! In the meantime, see these articles we’ve prepared for you. Ciao! :)
