The White Stripes and Lomography Present: Under Great White Northern Lights Competition!


Your chance to win rare White Stripes and Lomography loot, by submitting your vision of the Northern Lights!

In 2007, The White Stripes, one of the worlds most enigmatic bands, celebrated their 10 year anniversary by playing every province and territory across Canada. Now, the band has announced the release of a limited edition box set to commemorate their Canadian tour with a series of work capturing the striking live moments and poignant off-stage interactions. To celebrate the release of Under Great White Northern Lights, we’ve teamed up for a competition worthy of such astrological events!

To participate in this one of a kind competition, you only have to show us your interpretation of the Northern Lights. Upload the streaks and stars, light leaks and amazing colors that really show your vision of the Northern Lights. The band would especially love to see any photos utilizing the red, white and black color scheme, but it’s not necessary to win!

Still need some more convincing? Let’s talk about what you can win!

We are thrilled to offer some spectacular prizing for this competition. Not only will there be one Grand Prize Winner, taking home some truly rare White Stripes and Lomography loot, but there will also be a First Runner Up, 10 Second Runners Up and 5 Honorable Mentions that also get to take home great prizes!

    Hey, come on! It's simply not fair. We're waiting for the result almost month. This is not how we should be treated!

  53. lacon
    lacon ·

    I was told by kazarareta that the NY offices have passed on the short list to the White Stripes themselves to decide. Remember there were almost 1200 pictures to look through and judge! That's time consuming! Also, Jack White is a busy man so if it takes a while for the White Stripes to pick the winners so be it. At least you know they're going to be looking at the photos themselves which is pretty gd cool.

  54. whathaveicreated
    whathaveicreated ·

    good to know, thanks for the update.

  55. pollyfonia

    Something is better than nothing. I'm still thinking that we haven't been treated seriously.

    I agree with kazb. What's going on with this competition?!

  60. ctpj

    who won?

  61. pollyfonia

    Is it still without the result or you just haven't told us? Who is the winner?
