20.000 photos with peace from around the world will create a true piece of art - the Pokoj (Peace) LomoWall during Lodz's Lomography Meeting 2011. Submit your lomographs to become part of this exhibition and to pimp up your piggy account.
This year’s Lomography Meeting in Lodz will consist not only of slide shows of pictures, a camera obscura and a series of workshops but also of the Pokoj LomoWall. What the hell is Pokoj? The Polish word has two meanings: peace and room.
We want to create a lomographic piece of art with contributions from around the world in one room using an unbelievable amount of 20.000 photos.
Why? To show others how a lomographer sees peace in his/her world and how the lomographic community contributes to a democratic piece of art it in their own, amazing, colourful and extraordinary way!
So, now you know why we need the support of our loyal community and ask you to upload your submissions! Show us what peace means to you, in your culture, your family, your surrounding, in your “room”.

With our newest competition to celebrate the release of the Lomo'Instant Boston Edition, we want to know what Boston means to you. Even if you've never been to Boston — no problem! We want to see your best shots that represent Boston to you!
Back in the 1990s, Gilbert Blecken was a big music fan and wrote for his own small music fanzine. He would interview bands in between sound checks and take photographs of them. He was never a professional photographer or worked for a company; he simply did it for his fanzine. Twenty years on, Gilbert’s photographs have matured into an amazing documentation of some of the biggest music icons of that era. We caught up with Gilbert to ask him about these photographs and the fascinating story behind them.
