  • Paste it anywhere you want, the more creative the better – just take care not vandalise anything, that would NOT be cool.

    How do we let you know we would like posters once we place an order? Are they just automatically sent?

  4. tomas_bates
    tomas_bates ·

    @sthomas68 - Yes posters will automatically be sent with every order!

    @life_on_mars - We are very sorry but we can't deliver to Russia

  8. rancliffhasenza

    Sounds great!
    But is it free shipping?

  9. bass_clarinet_2000
    bass_clarinet_2000 ·

    Oh yes, I'll be doing an order just for that.

  10. cameracharlie
    cameracharlie ·

    Are the posters free from stores? Walk in and grab some?

  11. tomas_bates
    tomas_bates ·

    @rancliffhasenza - Sorry but the free shipping deal has ended :-(

    @cameracharlie - Yes you can pick up a poster for free from the Gallery Stores!

    best prize ever! but only 3 winners!? this rumble is gonna be tight. :)

  14. ijester

    Do we get all 10 posters when placing the order or just 1 out of the 10 posters?

  15. boredbone
    boredbone ·

    yay! vienna calling.

  16. rodrigoalmeida

    Why can't we get it at the embassy in Lisbon?

    how come everytime I've just bought something at the shop, you come up with cool freebies. too late for me :(

  19. natalieerachel
    natalieerachel ·

    Yay free posters! Will be ordering a Spinner soon so I'll be looking forward to my incoming loot :)

  20. pomps
    pomps ·

    Is there any place in Vienna to pick up a Poster? or just in the mentioned Gallery Stores?

  21. hatetofakeit
    hatetofakeit ·

    can you maybe put up a PDF of the poster?... then i could just print it out!

  22. feeqajamal
    feeqajamal ·

    i agree with @hatetofakeit. it would be a lot more eco-friendly if we could just print the posters ourselves instead of increasing carbon footprints by having to ship it all over the world (mainly because most of us don't have excess to the Gallery Stores).

  23. martie
    martie ·

    I totally agree with feeqajamal. It is a lot more eco- friendly (and therefore more analogue, in a way:)).
    There is another reason also: I would love to join the competition but I can't place any orders right now, I'm out of money!
    It would be fair if everybody could join without having to order anything.

  24. thewretched
    thewretched ·

    I had an order dispatched on Friday, what are the chances that i have a poster included in with it?

  25. yattering

  29. aloho

    how can a digitized analogue photo not be enhanced or manipulated by the process? if the future is analogue why is it necessary to scale everything down to a digital format in the end?

  42. tomas_bates
    tomas_bates ·

    @acecaroline - No A4 is fine! But obviously you're more than welcome to print the posters billboard size too if you'd like ;-)

  43. aalper
    aalper ·

    To be double sure...can I use 35mm? I am still learning my Tori Diana and I want to be time/cost efficient ;)

  44. tomas_bates

  49. eva_eva
    eva_eva ·

    can i print the poster in smaller than A4 size? :P

  50. audiovore
    audiovore ·

    So can the admins vet rumbles? Or do they not bother? Cause only a third, at best, are legit...

  51. tomas_bates
    tomas_bates ·

    @eva_eva - Yes you can! You can print the posters in any size - If you print them small though, just remember you'll have to do something extra special to make a big impression :-)

  52. gabysalas
    gabysalas ·

    @audiovore: rest assured photos not following the rules stated above will not be chosen as winners.

  53. ivalu

    gabysalas ·

    @all: Pictures should be uploaded to this page. If you are logged in, there is an Enter this competition - line after teh article. After that, you should see a stream of your photos which you can drag and drop.

  64. amybreaksloose
    amybreaksloose ·

    Do you have to upload your pictures in an album first before you can drag them into that stream ? It's all new for me and it's the first time I do this, so... :D

  65. tomas_bates
    tomas_bates ·

    @amybreaksloose - No worries! Yes you have to upload your photos before you can submit them - Read the guide at the bottom of this article on how to upload your photos in the Lomography lab -… - Then, once your photos are uploaded they should just appear automatically on this page and you can submit them - Hope that helps :-)
