Fill the Map!

2008-09-05 8

With the introduction of the new Lomolocations map here in the magazine this section has been brought to a new level. There are already 1040 locations online and more being added daily. We believe that the map allows for a new level of navigation, meant to make it easier for you to find a review of choice.

With the introduction of the new Lomolocations map here in the magazine this section has been brought to a new level. There are already 1040 locations online and more being added daily. We believe that the map allows for a new level of navigation, meant to make it easier for you to find a review of choice.

1040 locations is a lot, but we would like there to be more! There are several empty spaces in particular out there, and we are sure that some of you have either been there, perhaps even live there now, while others are just wishing to see this part of the world. Share your best moments with us all!

In order to make you a little bit more excited about this new project, we have changed the prize. The three users that submit the most number of relevant locations (see list below) will receive an additional bonus of 10 piggies. On top of that, they will receive an award on their homes “Lomotraveler.” (For this competition, please submit your entries as you would another location)

Time Until Monday the 8th of September

Submission limit No limit

Locations

Eastern Europe:
Albania, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Macedonia, Moldavia, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia

American States:
Colorado, Dakotas, Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Minnesota, Montana

China:
Any non coastal areas!

As we are sure that we will receive plenty of reviews from you, we would like to use this opportunity to publish our new guidelines. The reason that we are doing this is that we have in the past received reviews that you have spent time on to write, yet we have not been able to publish since they lacked something. With these guidelines, we hope that we can reduce the time from when you submit an entry until the time we publish it, and hence also the amount of submissions that we can not use.

We have decided to divide locations into two main sections, those which focus on the historical and cultural aspects of a location, and those that focus more on your personal experiences. As the types slightly differ, so do the guidelines. Please have a look at them here, they are meant to help you!

We would also like to announce that in the future, published entries will receive 5 piggy points.

We would also like to take this opportunity to remind you that submissions with 1 picture or 1 line of text do not suffice to get published.

Much Love

We’re fizzing with excitement to introduce our latest Kickstarter project: the Lomo’Instant Square. We’re talking about the world’s first analogue camera to produce square-format Instax pictures. It features a 95mm glass lens for super sharp photos, an advanced automatic mode that takes care of exposure, all of Lomography’s signature creative features — and a compact, foldable design. The Lomo’Instant Square has launched on Kickstarter. Come join the fun and back us on Kickstarter now to save up to 35% on the planned retail price, and scoop all sorts of extra treats. Be sure to snatch up the deals before they run out. Be there and be square!

    I've been to almost all of those eastern Europe countries but unfortunately don't have that many relevant photos to submit to any particular location...

    Anyway, I'll get down to business and fill the map with other locations (not in the list). Just now about 10 locations popped into my head. I better get started right away =)

    @ gvelasco
    you wil know when a post has been accepted when it is published. Should be within a few days but im sure there should be no problems!

    @maddyyoulook
    sure you can submitt a location for n.carolina, however it can not be counted towards this challange. Stay put though, casuse more challneges will come!

    @ fash_on
    you can send the shoots from the trip. We at lomography want to encourgae an analogue lifestyle, so as long as the photos are analog, they should be fine!

    cheers
