It’s time to look for trouble
In the last few months a s***load of Lomographic pictures from all over the world were submitted to the first stage of the Live The Search Competition, themed:” Whole Lotta Love”. Take a look at the 1600 shots of hearts in the sand, glistering sea, pretty surf girls, dreamy beaches and bright blue skies at

Times of love are over now. Summer is over. Fall starts and therefore we open Stage 2 : “Looking for Trouble”. It’s time to catch the wild waves of your life – in the form of your eccentric artistic endeavors, rebellious and fun parties, and crazy, out-of-this-world schemes with friends, lovers, and strangers. Ripcurl is the esteemed brand catering to the surfing lifestyle. For this reason, we would like to see analogue shots related to surfing, skateboard, and other related images. Submit your Lomographic pictures until the beginning of December and once again have a chance to win Lomography and Ripcurl prizes.

Winners of a Whole Lotta Love
In the meantime a jury of Ripcurl professionals and seasoned Lomographers will be sorting through the entries in the next weeks to pick the winners of the first stage. The 36 winning shots will shine in glory at the website in the next few weeks.

Looking for trouble in style
Do you want to look for trouble with a FishEye? Then think about using the Ripcurl FishEye 2. Perfectly drenched in summery colors this little fellow was made to shoot loose. Be it your ride on the perfect wave or the cutest summer love, the Fisheye 2 Rip Curl is always ready for action and captures everything within 180°. Dressed in flashy yellow, green, blue and red it wears the perfect beach outfit that draws all eyes on it while taking the most breathtaking photos. For more information visit:

    p.s. "surfing, skating and other related images" what exactly are these "other related images"? It's not very specific... I hope you mean 'related to the "eccentric artistic endeavors, rebellious and fun parties, and crazy, out-of-this-world schemes with friends, lovers, and strangers" because that's what my subs have mainly been... Fun parties and a couple of awesome skateboard pics.

    Yeah, from looking at the submissions it is clear that most people don't understand the submission guidelines for this one. There are an awful lot of pictures that don't seem in any way related to the surfing/skating lifestyle.
    There are also an awful lot of Summer/beach pics which I thought was more Stage 1...

    one question: are parkour photos ok?

    Yeah, this was the reason I didn't enter Stage 1... This is all very unspecific... There are only 2 pics that have surfboards or something else connected in them in the winners for Stage 1. They are awesome shots, no question, but maybe it would have helped to be a little more specific? It's a turn-down this way :P
