Everdearest Lomographers,

We are truly grateful to continuously receive your analogue-inspired article submissions and we thank you for making Lomography Magazine your online source for anything that’s Lomography, analogue, and even beyond! We are encouraging you even more to submit your pieces and take part in our growing community.

Here on Lomography Magazine, your articles count! And so, every Friday starting tomorrow, we will be highlighting the best user-submitted articles! Your friendly Lomography Magazine editors will pick an Article of the Week for the following sections: Tipster, Reviews (accessories, cameras, and films), Locations, and Analogue Lifestyle.

To be fair and square (and for everyone’s reference), we will base the ‘Articles of the Week’ according to the following criteria:

  • Creativity: interesting and imaginative takes on the old and usual
  • Originality: fresh, different, unconventional
  • Reader Response: if our readers loved it, you deserve an extra merit!
  • Relevance: timely and engaging stuff that the community will enjoy (i.e. requested posts)
  • Overall Quality: cohesive paragraphs, grammatically sound, reader-friendly

Aside from re-featuring your article on the Magazine, users who will bag the ‘Article of the Week’ will receive 10 Piggies each! Now, isn’t that fancy? So, LomoBoys and LomoGirls, what are you waiting for? Keep those analogue articles coming!

Thank you,
_Erin_

PS: There are other ways to contribute to Lomography Magazine! Submit requested posts or if you have more analogue ideas that could be put into a series, become a regular contributor!

    Pushing Boundaries: Multiple Exposing Film Soup

    As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.
