Interested in finding out the full details and what sort of prizes we have lined up? Read after the jump for full details of our party competition! This is going to be huge!
Yes analogue lovers, this is Lomography’s Special 20th Anniversary Rumble and we’re celebrating in style! What we’re asking from you is to select your favorite Lomographic photos ever. It might not be easy to choose out of the hundreds or thousands you’ve snapped but we really need the best of the best for this special competition (we’ll tell you why in a bit).
You can submit 5 photos in total for this competition. Make sure all the meta-data is complete (so add a title, camera and film tag) and that you also leave a small note in the description telling us why it is your favorite. We want to know the story behind your masterpiece!
Submitting Photos In-Store
If you prefer, you can submit your entry by hand at one of our Lomography Gallery Stores across the world. Just print your beloved photo and present it at the counter. The first five to do so on each day of the rumble will even receive a small gift! How awesome is that? Please make sure to leave your complete details (full name, address, email and phone number) on the reverse side of the photo or we won’t know how or where to contact you!

What exactly do I feel while waiting for my Lomo'Instant photos to be developed? I have to say I get a mix of "Surprise me, dear Lomo!" but also some "Did I capture it as I wanted?" kind of thought. No matter the school of thought, with the Splitzer you can add so many cool effects to your photos you'll definitely embrace it!
New York is full of interesting people. Everywhere you look you, will find good-looking, smart, and powerful characters; models, actresses, entrepreneurs, managers, artists. Because of this sometimes it can be a little intimidating for a regular guy in the Big Apple to step up, talk to the girl you like, or make new friends. So here are a few tips, courtesy of the Lomo'Instant, that will help you to break the ice.

Ladies and gentlemen, it's no secret that without you, our website would never be possible. With that in mind, we're calling on all Lomographers (that's you) for a helping hand by giving us your expert opinions. In return, we're passing out Piggy Points to spend in our Online Shop. Kiwis, Aussies and Scandinavians, whether you're residents, dreamers or just big fans of these great places — everybody can contribute and everybody can win!
Aside from being an immensely talented lomographer, what makes him a perfect LomoGuru is his burning desire to share his knowledge. The city where he lives is full of people who are interested in analog photography, but the lack of easy access to film and equipment poses a challenge for them to pursue their passion. To keep them motivated, Hugo organizes workshops and tours on different film photography techniques and DIY tricks. Let's give a loud round of applause to Hugo Pereira, better known in the community as zulupt, our LomoGuru from Marinha Grande, Portugal!

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.
