You didn't think a worldwide competition would be a walk in the park, did you? Here's the first mission you need to accomplish for eternal Lomographic glory! Be sure to read through our Mission brief first though!
The gears are turning and the wheels are in motion for The Great Lomo LC-A Race! We are all waiting for the ten teams’ different Location entries to wow us on each turn but the buck doesn’t stop there. Each team has ten secret missions for each stage of the race and now, it’s time to unveil the first task!
Stage One Mission: Show your Local Flavor!
Parade the gustatory delights that’s undeniably local. Is it a hotdog stand that’s been at the corner street for 50 years? Or a hole-in-the-wall restaurant that serves more than exotic cuisine? Show us what makes your place tick! The winning photo will bag 50 Piggy Points to be split to all members of your team (5 Piggy Points each). So be sure to cheer on your team’s participant from afar, as it’s a win-win for all!
Meet our Race Jury and read up on further race clarifications!
Prize(s): 50 Piggy Points split to members of the team with the winning photo (or photo set)

For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.

When a truly fascinating photograph hits you, it’s powerful enough to transport you to the story that is being told in that image. Such is what happens when one sees Suji Park's work for the first time. It’s as if you can actually hear and feel the details of each snapshot — the warmth of a late afternoon sun, the complex silence of nature or a dry and nostalgic solitude.
When asked to recall the moment they first became truly interested in photography, most photographers would remember the magical feeling of picking up a hand-me-down or secondhand camera, the thrill of shooting an entire roll through, and the elation upon seeing and holding their first ever set of photographs. Caleb Savage, however, had quite a unique experience. At 10 years old, he had his first taste of working in the darkroom making prints at Boy Scout camp, thereby beginning a more than a decade-long affinity with photography.
