We had the Lomo LC-A Race some three years ago and it made Lomographers giddy and anxious of the huge results! And now we’re bringing back the intense feeling with The LC-Wide Race! Yup, our photos are wider now!

The LC-Wide Race will compose of 5 teams from 5 continents and will be held over 5 stages (a stage being one stop with a Lomographer in the team.) Each team will receive their corresponding guidelines, an LC-Wide camera, films, a notebook, and certain cool stuff for every task/mission. These are each team’s essentials as they shoot and pass the camera around for 10 weeks or even more. With these, challenges and big prizes await every Lomographer!

So you think you can be part of this world wide event? Then let us know by dropping us an e-mail at lcwiderace2012@lomography.com with the following details:

  • Subject: Racer Wannabe

We will be accepting applicants until September 2 who we will then short list into 5 teams. Get on with the LC-Wide Race!

    Flying the Canon Flag with the Canon EOS-1N

    Who do you think deserves the crown for the best 35mm SLR camera? Canon and Nikon will always be in a two-horse race to the top spot in the consumer to prosumer SLR/DSLR market, having developed reputations as two of the biggest go-to brands. Representing the Canon corner, I can safely say the Canon EOS-1N is by far the best SLR I have ever used.

    Kamila K Stanley: Boundless Imaginarium

    For this young artist, photography is not just a tally of sights. Set in light or dusk, it is a record of sensations. Shared bliss and awe are as much part of the scenery as the clouds. There is a sense of flight even on land.

    Bridge Hopping: Escaping Lisbon to Costa da Caparica Beach

    Thirty-five degrees. Summer. Lisbon. Seven hills. Worst combination ever! What better to do than to escape the horrible heat of a tropical summer day in Lisbon with its too many hills to a fabulous beach that is just one bridge away? It's enough to just cross the stunning 25th of April Bridge to arrive in an exotic paradise, with great waves and even better people.

    Pushing Boundaries: So I Heard You Like Multiple Exposures

    My name is Amber Valentine and I have a confession to make: I’m not really a photographer. I have a website full of photographs, a bookshelf full of cameras, film waiting to be developed, and a wall full of framed pictures I’ve taken. Even so, I don’t really consider myself a photographer per se. I think that Lomography is more about the experimentation and the fun of film than it is about the photography, and that experimentation is part of the reason I have embraced Lomography so.

    Travel Stories: Trekking Mount Papandayan by shufi

    There are about 127 active volcanoes in Indonesia, one of the most popular ones being Mount Papandayan, located 2,665 meters above sea level in Garut, West Java. My boyfriend and I usually go hiking together so we decided to spend our long weekend holiday (three days/two nights) at Mount Papandayan.
