Lomography x DesignTAXI: Find + Shoot a Taxi!


Lomography and DesignTAXI are thrilled to announce the first and ever rumble of taxis and all sorts of transportation!

We, Lomographers, are the creative bunch and we suspect many of you are either professional designers or crazy about design. DesignTAXI, based in Singapore, operates an amazing design magazine, as well as the global talent hunting pool The Creative Finder. We are teaming up with them for the first time to bring you the most design-y rumble ever!

Check out what you have to do below to win a La Sardina Deluxe Kit worth US$249, 100 piggies, and US$200 worth of voucher from The Bazaar and a supersize portfolio worth US$149 on The Creative Finder. What’s more? Winners will get the opportunity to be exhibited in Lomography Gallery Store Hong Kong and showcased on DesignTAXI, too! Hop in the cab!

We want to collect your photographs of taxi cabs! If you live in a city, go out and take pictures of any taxi cabs that you can find! Shoot the standard taxi design or find the quirkiest taxi design you have bumped into! If you happen to live in a place where there are no taxi cabs, don’t worry ! Shoot any kind of transportation available: train, airplane, bus, motorcycles, anything that moves. Or get creative – show us the interior of a taxi, show us what you see in cab ride … show us your journey!
