Hop Aboard the DesignTAXI x Lomography Competition

Thursday, September 8th, 2011

Taxis aren’t just a quintessential form of urban transportation; they’ve become cultural icons themselves. From New York’s checkered yellow cab to London’s dour black one, the taxi is every bit a part of a city’s makeup as the Empire State or St Paul’s Cathedral are.

To celebrate the humble taxi, we’re collaborating with Lomography to launch a photography competition: find and shoot a taxi, Lomo-style!

Starting today, we’ll be accepting photographs of taxi cabs, from those with crazy designs to the vanilla ones, from external shots to those from the dashboard—so long as they’re creative. And if you live in a city without taxis, shoot any form of transportation, be they cars, motorcycles or trains.

The most creative Lomographers will stand a chance to win a new La Sardina Deluxe Kit worth US$249, a $200 voucher for The Bazaar and a supersize portfolio from The Creative Finder worth $149. Winning entries will also be exhibited in the Lomography Gallery Store Hong Kong as well as on DesignTAXI. So ready your cameras and come aboard!

For more information, please visit Lomography.
