Here’s the continuation of our little recap of Photocase Day 2014. Today: the photo contest. This year’s photo competition was quite similar to last year’s, but with a little twist. If our contest was a cocktail, it definitely would have had the word “twist” in its name. But as it wasn’t about alcoholic liquids, but finding a new owner of the Photocase cup, we simply named the contest “photoswap”.
7 teams took part and here’s how the whole thing it went: The task was to shoot a photo story with six photos. These photo series were going to be presented later in the evening. But – and now comes the “twist” part – by another group and not the ones who took the photos. So the challenge was not only to take 6 ace photos but also to develop a story based on someone else’s photos and present this story in front of the the whole La Chamansabaa crowd. Our honoured jury, made up of one member from each group (o-zero, table, andlostluggage, Gräfin., jock+scott, prenz66 and sir_hiss) had the super-hard job to pick 2 winners. One for the best photo series and one for the best story/presentation.
1st prize in the category “Best photos” was a 100GB Dropbox voucher.
The group with the best presentation/story won a Konstruktor DIY set from Lomography.de
And here are the winners of “Best story”
Group 7 with Charlotte V., jodofe, matlen and andlostluggage won “Best Story”. Congratulations! The photos of the best story were shot by Group 6 with secretgarden, Th S, o-zero and speednik (who also made place 2 in the category “Best photos”).
Meet Adelgunde, chairman of the Neukölln latex- and rubber enthusiast association. Adelgunde is very sad. She was having almost no fun at the last meet up and her beloved balloon also doesn’t mean so much to her any more…
Horst isn’t feeling too well too. As treasurer of the tote bag fetishist association Moabit, he does not feel challenged enough any more. Even his favourite tote bag can’t blind the fact any more that the tote bag love is gone.
But what’s this? Ahh – rubber, latex. Horst has never felt something that pleasant before.
Adelgunde is happy. Did her balloon find a new admirer? And what is that thing that Horst is holding in his arm? A tote bag… interesting. If she is allowed to touch it?
Both vanish behind the bushes to try out their now favorites…
Pure happiness, happy end. Together they are off to buy new talcum powder and fabric softener.
Winners in the category “Best Photos”
… And the glorious Photocase cup and the 100 GB Dropbox vouchers went to: Team 3 with fabsn, pischare, *princessa*, table and koordinate for their street photography series “Berlin – a portrait.” Congratulations! We would have loved to show you all 6 photos, but unfortunately, due to legal reasons, we can only show you one photo from the series:
