Time to start submitting for our beautiful Lomowall in Manchester!
We’ve all seen the I <3 MCR campaign around Manchester and now Lomography wants you to show us your love for Manchester. If you haven’t already heard (where have you been?!) we’re in the process of opening up our first Lomograpy Gallery Store outside of London and Manchester is the chosen city!
As the main feature of all of our stores, the Lomowall will take up a huge space in our new store and we want it to feature YOUR photos of Manchester. So if you’ve been out snapping around the city, send us your favourite pictures and you could see it featured in prime position on our wall! And if you haven’t got any…GETSNAPPING! What better reason?
• Sort through your photos and pick the best ones thoroughly and thoughtfully.
• Film/Camera Type: any kind of film / analogue camera can be used but standard 35mm or 120 format are preferred. (nothing should be digitally enhanced or manipulated.)
• Minimum Photo Dimensions: submissions must be at least 1220px in either width or height, larger dimensions are welcome
• No visible borders or watermarks, etc.
And of course every Lomographer whose photos get chosen for the lomowall will get 5 piggy points credited to their account!
The submissions are in and it's been tough narrowing them down to three winners. Thanks to everyone who submitted photos for the Candy Kittens Rumble. Read on to find out if you are one of the lucky ones!

The Ting Tings are a musical duo from Manchester who have more pop hits than you can shake a stick at. They are most famous for their 2008 hit "That's Not My Name" which got even the stiffest of people shaking in their seats. The Ting Tings are back with a brand new album called Super Critical. They are big film fanatics (check out their website for proof) so we gave them a Sprocket Rocket Camera and a bunch of film to document their life in sunny IBIZA.
Really want to bring your film photos to life? We’re now offering totally analogue fine art prints in a host of large sizes and formats! Carefully enlarged from your negatives onto premium photographic paper by lab professionals, each picture is a unique piece of craftsmanship.
