LomoMission 63: Where is Happiness?


Feeling sad because of not being able to feed your piggybank with anything lately? Pull that long face off of you, and start thinking of brighter and colourful things! And if you do, the whole world will follow suit and good things will begin to come your way! – Not until you join our new LomoMission!

There are those who prefer the simple things and treasure them deep in their hearts, while there’s a fair chunk of people who can never be satisfied that easily. These two personalities unquestionably have its differences from each other, but at a certain point, they share a very similar characteristic – a yearning for happiness. By definition, we know what it is already, but still, the question regarding its whereabouts remains mysterious.

It may sound like a kind of question innocently asked by a child though, but for the grown-ups this is really something of a feat that, more often than not, one’s lifetime is not enough to have it answered. Maybe we’re too naïve to realise it and it’s just hidden somewhere – swept under the rug, inside the fridge waiting to be eaten or it could be someone we know and just waiting to be found.

For this mission, we want you to prepare yourself for the hunt by showing us every corner of your analogue existence through Lomographic snaps! And if you succeeded on locating the whereabouts of your happiness, 100 Piggies just enough to buy you a new Holga 120 3D Stereo Camera (or anything you fancy) will be given for you to experience the the Lomographic online shopping spree just like a V.I.P.!

Competition Details:

  • Film/Camera Type: Any analogue photo not digitally enhanced or manipulated

  • Minimum Photo Dimensions: Submissions must be at least 768px in either width or height.
  • Meta data must be completed (camera, film, location & 3 tags) for prize eligibility.
    *By submitting your photos to this rumble, you allow Lomography.com to use your submitted photos for promotional purposes.

    There's nothing like a photo that show the person you like very much, with a smile, in a sunshine day after a juicy juice. When you are so happy to be there, that you forget to check out things like the exposure in the camera =)
