Win Your Dream Space – The Fine Print


We’re very excited about our Win Your Dream Space Competition and having you sharing our Analogue Lifestyle in our Lomography Gallery Stores! Want to know if you have what it takes? Then you’ve come to the right place!

The Win Your Dream Space Competition is a big opportunity for you to reach new creative heights whilst being hosted by Lomography. Ten Gallery Store Spaces are up for grabs for month long stretch until the end of March 2013.

What will you come up with to impress us enough to select you? Fashion shows, cello and maracas performances, speed dating, a pop store with a store? Below you can find some open-ended suggestions about how to blow our minds away as well as general terms and conditions.

Surprise Us! We’re Expecting The Unexpected

Honestly, we’re after the wackiest, most original proposals, so don’t be thinking; ‘Ah, no that’s way out there!’ Propose it! We want to hear about it! We know you’re brimming with fresh ideas as bright as a cross-processed slide film, so let your imagination run wild and let’s make it a month for everyone to remember.

Ready For The Good Times

Joy, excitement and fun is what we’re after; we want to see a lot of people enjoying themselves and having a good time. Attract them, engage them and make it a glorious month in good company!

Terms & Conditions

Who’s Coming? – How many people are you expecting? How will you promote your project?

All Hands On Deck! – You or someone from your team has to available to man your project space at all times (see opening hours below). If you plan on selling anything, please keep in mind that you must be fully registered to do so with the competent authorities and that you will have to do your own cashing.

Lunchtime – Unfortunately cooking is not possible and water cannot be supplied.
