Shelter from a Catastrophe Competition


We have joined forces with DROME magazine for a very special competition. Ever had the feeling of needing to hide and find shelter? Show us your favorite hiding spot for a chance to win some awesome prizes! Read after the jump for more details on the competition.

Many of us have been lucky to never have to take refuge in the face of imminent danger, but if you did have to, where would you go? Where is the secret place – real or ideal – where you would feel safest and where you usually find a greater sense of security? Where would you be hidden in the proximity of a – natural or man-made- catastrophe?

Share your secret shelter with DROME, the Italian cosmopolitan magazine that deals with the contemporary world of art and culture. Join the “Shelter from a Catastrophe” competition, read on for more on the rules and the awesome prizes.

    I put my shots in! I put a shot of my church, my favorite cozy spot to study and hide at school, and a shot I took of my favorite bridge to sit under out at the lake when I just need to get away from home. <3 I love lomography!

    I'd like to show you also these two shots I took last week in Bologna……

    these are the original writings left there since the bombing of that city during the World War II.
