CONTEST RULES

***SPECIAL UPDATE*** Now you don't need a LiveJournal to participate in the competition! Send you submissions by email to frontdesk@readrussia.com and we'll publish your Soviet Bar adventures for you so you can go nurse your hangover... Think of it as a holiday favor.




RUSSIA! Magazine (http://www.readrussia.com) and The Lomographic Society (http://www.lomography.com) have an assignment for you, should you choose to accept it.


The Russian Bar Crawl Photo Competition We’ll Drink to That!


1. Go to a Russian-themed drinking establishment anywhere in the world (except Russia or the former Soviet union). This can be a kitschy “Soviet”-themed bar or simply one that has a connection to Russian culture through its owner, décor, or clientele. The interpretation is up to you.

2. Spend an evening at the establishment documenting your experience with any Lomographic or other analog camera. Take photos of the interior, the bartender and the patrons that you meet.

3. Join the community and tell us in pictures and words what is interesting, unique and uniquely Russian about both the place itself and your experience of it. The format is up to you. Tell us a story and show a few pictures. Or tell a story with no pictures. Or show a photo gallery without a story. Tell us a true story or a fictional one. You make the call. Ultimately, we’re looking for one thing: the world’s most compelling
tales and shots of real or imagined Soviet-themed bars of the past, present, or future.

***SPECIAL UPDATE*** Now you don't need a LiveJournal to participate in the competition! Send you submissions by email to frontdesk@readrussia.com and we'll publish your Soviet Bar adventures for you so you can go nurse your hangover... Think of it as a holiday favor for RUSSIA! with love.

What is Lomography, you ask?

Though Lenin’s heirs didn’t quite succeed in exporting the Revolution to the West, they did produce a Trojan horse of sorts. It’s called LOMO, and it’s a small, portable camera you can stash in your tunic pocket, always ready for that candid shot of a fat cat slurping caviar. And though the Soviet Union is long gone, its battalion of Trojan horses continues to multiply under the auspices of an Austrian company called Lomographische AG. Just last month, suspiciously close to the 90th anniversary of the October Revolution, Meg and Jack White, the rock ’n’ roll siblings known as the White Stripes, came out with their very own, limited edition his-and-hers LOMO cameras in — you guessed it — cornea-scorching red ...
