I know a lot of you love contests, but not everyone is a designer, so I think I’ve found a way to get more of you involved. For the past few months I’ve been chatting with the super nice folks over at Lomography here in Los Angeles, trying to figure out something exciting to do together.

After a bit of brainstorming we’ve decided to have a a simple competition: summarize the city or town you live in with one photograph.

The place you live in is important, some of you might love your town, others may feel trapped by it. You may choose to portray it in a beautiful light, you may show the darker side, or maybe there’s something hysterical that will make us all laugh, who knows? That’s totally up to you, but the more creative you are the better chance you have of winning.

Ah yes! Winning!
For this competition Lomo will be supplying the winner with one of their rad new Sprocket Rocket cameras, which allows you to take a photo using the entire roll of film, not just the middle parts. You can see some examples above of the photos as well as the camera itself, pretty sweet, right? If you want some more information about the camera you can click here.
