Shoot Your Prophecy Winner Announcement


You got the posters and stickers, you stuck them everywhere and you shot your prophecy – And boy, didn’t you do a good job at it! But did you shoot your way to success? Who are the talented 3 lomographers who’ve won themselves a once-in-a-lifetime trip to visit Lomography HQ in Vienna? Read on to find out the winners and some special surprise prizes too!

Congratulations and thanks to all of you who took part in our huge Shoot Your Prophecy rumble. We loved every one of the creative ways you came up with of shooting the posters! We had some truly great shots to pick from – With over 3000 photos submitted, we had shots taken with Fisheyes and Supersamplers, LC-As and Lubitels, and all kinds of other analogue cameras too! But it was great to see a unifying force throughout the entries, wherever they were taken in the world – A deep and innate passion for analogue photography! But, alas, alas, there can only be 3 winners for our awesome grand prize, a trip to visit the Lomography Headquarters in Vienna! So, without further ado, here are the 3 big winners!

The simplicity of Jorgesato's photo of a sticker against the sky perfectly captures the beauty of analogue.

But that’s not all – We were so impressed with so many of the entries that we’ve decided to award some highly commended photos with 50 Piggy Points too! Here are our highly commended finalists and their photos below:

    It seems to me, some people are getting too competitive and bitter when it comes to piggies. That's sad.

    aww, i have the same sentiments as @zoezo and @mephisto19. i really did try to think of unique ideas to get those posters out there. i skinned a camera, had my friends raise eyebrows at a public restroom, and made those look twice shades. fine, call me a sourpuss.

    @goonies ti ringrazio tantissimo! Io dopo avere visto i lavori di @superlighter ed altri mi ero già convinto di non potercela assolutamente fare per la vittoria del viaggio, la menzione d'onore e i 50 piggies sono stati una bellissima sorpresa! :-)

    @marant69 in effetti anche il lavoro di @superlighter merita parecchio e anche quello di @zoezo garbava tanto. Certo il viaggio era allettante ma con 50 porcellini si fa una bella scorta di rullini!!!
