Reaching 15 million likes on Lomography is a massive milestone for us and we’re in the mood for a celebration. Help us on our mission and you could win some pretty cool prizes! We’ll be giving away treats for all kinds of achievements over the next few weeks – from top photo likers to people who receive the most likes, anyone can take part to win. The counter on the very top of every page tells you how close we are to each milestone on the journey – be sure to check it regularly to see how close we all are!

So you’d like to take part? Great news! There are 2 kinds of ways to participate and both are super easy.

  1. By liking Photos on the Lomography site. If you aren’t already a member of the Lomography community, join today and start liking. Where to start? Just read on, we give some pointers at the end of the article…
  2. By having your photos liked by others. So invite your friends to join the community – then they can like your photos and win prizes too! Remember to share your photos on Facebook and Twitter so your friends can see your best shots and like them! Simply use the links below each of your photos.

One thing to remember: This is about liking those photos that fill you with warmth for the analogue photos you see on the site. Each time you ‘like’ a photo is a token of your appreciation, so please use the power of the ‘like’ honestly and wisely!

Like we say, an occasion this big deserves some prizes to match right? Well, we’ll be giving away all kinds of treats over the following weeks. We’ve got camera prizes for people reaching certain milestones on the way to 15 million. There will be prizes for the most liked photo and a very special something for the 15th million liked photo and its liker. And that’s not all; get ‘liked’ and your photo could make it into one of our special photo galleries!

Ready to start? Check out a selected bunch of our favorite shots, explore photos by color, take a look at a stream of popular photos of popular photos or start with a random photo.

    A Very Special Portrait Lens

    A Very Special Portrait Lens

    Photos shot with a New Petzval lens are immediately recognizable for their super-sharp focus areas and wonderful swirly bokeh effect. Each New Petzval lens is crafted from brass (just like the original Petzval lens) and features premium glass optics. Together with Lomography, the lenses have been designed and constructed by a team of optics specialists at the Zenit factory in Russia. Zenit are master lens manufacturers and have the skill to build the Petzval lens for use with today’s SLR cameras.

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    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.
