Tagged: , , ,

Since the website is basically about photography, and street fashion being the subject, I thought I might bring to your attention this contest! Its for lomo loving photographers, like myself, or anyone who understands the “10 Golden Rules of Lomography”.


Analog Photography Organization Encourages Designers to Create Happy Accidents:
Community-centric tee shirt company, Threadless.com, has partnered up with The Lomographic Society International, a globally active organization dedicated to experimental and creative analog photography, for its latest “Loves” campaign.

Lomography and Threadless are challenging designers to create a tee inspired by one of the “10 Golden Rules of Lomography” including:

Lomography Rule #1: Take Your Camera Everywhere you Go
Lomography Rule #2: Use it Anytime, Day and Night
Lomography Rule #4: Try the Shot from the Hip
Lomography Rule #6: Don’t think
Lomography Rule #7: Be Fast
Lomography Rule #10: Don’t Worry About Any Rules

“Threadless Loves” challenges give designers an opportunity to flex their skills and design to a particular challenge. Challenges are sponsored and supported by companies relevant to the idea. Lomography, boasting half a million members across the world, encompasses an interactive, vivid, blurred and crazy way of life.

Up for grabs are the ultimate tools needed for photographers to commmunicate, absorb, and capture the world including the iconic Lomo LC-A+ camera with LC-A+ wide-angle lens, the DianaF+ with fisheye lens, the world’s first compact fisheye camera (Fisheye 2), 10 rolls of LomoX-Pro film, and a lot more. In addition, the designer chosen gets $2k in cash.

Deadline for entries is July 5, 2008. For more info and the 10 Golden Rules of Lomography hit the links below:
