Month-long ‘Grow that Mo’ challenge @ Lomography Gallery Store Soho


We are calling out to six brave chaps to step up and volunteer to grow their mo’s in the magic month of Movember! Are you up for the challenge!? We want you!

Month-long ‘Grow that Mo’ challenge

We will hand out a Diana Mini camera with flash and a roll of film to each and all you need to do is take one self-portrait a day for 30 days to document the growth of your moustache!

We will then use the images and make a stop motion mini-movie featuring your glorious new, itchy mo which will be featured online in December! The best, bushiest one gets to keep the camera as a prize! Yes, folks, this is what MOVEMBER is all about!

This is completely free and is on a first come, first served basis. Please book in and come in store to collect the camera and film between Oct 24-31. You must be ready and willing to commit totally to this project and start documenting your growing mo on the 1st of November – no chickens allowed!

Don’t feel like getting hairy in November? We have other events in store – check out our complete Movember schedule!
