The Shoot From The Hip - JPG Magazine Challange


Enter the latest JPG Magazine x Lomography challenge using a technique that no one knows better than you!

Enter the latest JPG Magazine x Lomography challenge using a technique that no one knows better than you!

All Lomographers know the 10 golden-rules of Lomography like the backs of their hands, so Lomographic Rule #4 should be like second nature to you.
Just skip the viewfinder and snap away – shoot from the hip, over your head, behind your back, or between your legs.

Then send YOUR best shot in to JPG and blow their minds!

Enter here:

If you’re one of the top hip-shot artists we see, you’ll be featured on newsstands around the world in issue #20 of JPG!

Plus, everyone who is published in JPG gets a free one-year subscription to the magazine and $100 in cold-hard cash!


We wanted to sweeten the deal for all you shoot-from-the-hipsters out there. The top 3 winners will each receive a brand new Lomo Lubitel 166+ Twin Lens Reflex camera!

The Lubitel+

is a loving recreation and re-invention of the classic Soviet-era wonder, now with new and improved features, including the ability to shoot both medium format and 35mm film. The top-down method of shooting makes Lubitel+ photography a somehow intimate experience.

However, it is the unique colour brilliance and surprising results this camera yields that really make the Lubitel+ one of a kind. This fully manual, re-animated TLR takes analogue photography back to the fundamentals.

Lubitel+ Highlights

  • Inbuilt 35mm film conversion mechanism – The Lubikin set
  • 4 image formats – including 35mm with Sprocket-hole look
  • Closer & Broader Focusing
  • Improved Milky Viewfinder
  • Standard Hotshoe
  • Stop Focus mechanism
  • Rewind your 120 rolls – for immediate double exposures!
  • Plus Other new features…

All other winners

will each receive a DianaF+ starter kit! The ’60’s cult camera is back and better than ever! We’ve fine-tuned this beauty and added more features, including a detachable lens system that allows you to add one of 4 lenses (sold separately), or leave the lens off and shoot pinholes!

Shoot From the Hip Competition Details

Submit your best hip shot – this means an image made without the help of the viewfinder.

Top 3 winners will get a brand new Lubitel+, PLUS their shot will make it into issue #20 of JPG Mag, a 1 year subscription to JPG Magazine and 100 USD cash!

All other winners will get:

1) Get their shot featured in issue #20 of JPG Mag

2) A one year free JPG subscription

3) 100 USD cash

4) A Diana F+ starter kit!

Deadline: 5th December 2008
