The LC-Wide Race: An Unexpected Call-Out

2013-09-19 7

Unfortunate events happen but as what people say, life must go on.

Yesterday, we lost a dear Lomographer and a great member of the Community in the persona of lakandula. It was terrible news that shocked not only his close friends but also his acquaintances in this Community.

Credits: lakandula

Lakan is a participant in the upcoming LC-Wide Race and it is very sad for us to continue this race without him.

But ties must meet and activities should resume. And as we pay tribute to Lakan, we have to continue the LC-Wide Race with full force and enthusiasm hence looking for another LC-Wide racer to take his place. Please note that Lakan is part of Team Asia, loud and proud representing my country, the Philippines.

So if you think that you deserve to be a part of this worldwide race, and is indeed from the Asian region, then let us know by e-maling me at mayee.gonzales@lomography.com with the following details.

  • Subject: LC-Wide Race Team Asia Candidate
  • Name:
  • LomoHome:
  • Complete Address:
  • Birthday:
  • In three to five sentences please answer, “Why should we pick you for the LC-Wide Race?”

We will be accepting applicants until September 25, Wednesday.

A selection of my personal favourites from Lakan. :)

Let us raise a toast to our dear lakandula! Lomo on, everyone!
