November was Lomography's birthday month, and December 6 brought about the 1 Year Anniversary of the Lomography Gallery Store Austin! What better way to celebrate on the cusp of these momentous occasions than with an exhibition showcasing the analogue works of art as photographed by our local community!
The exhibition opened at our LOMOGRAPHY TWENTY-ONE PARTY EXTRAVAGANZA: a party big enough to do double duty as a fete which honored BOTH Lomography’s 20th birthday and Lomography Austin’s 1st anniversary!
The very next day, the 10 winning images were seen by 600 revelers who came into the shop during the Downtown Austin Alliance and KUT Annual Capitol Tree Lighting & Holiday Stroll!
In the spirit of community, we partnered with The SIMS Foundation here in Austin to both donate to a worthy cause, and sweeten the prize pot for you guys! Grand Prize winner Trisha Leslie not only won a Diana F+ camera camera, and 3-pack of Lomography 200 iso X-Pro Film, but also 2 VIP tickets to the black-tie fundraiser and live music event, Femmes for SIMS: Night of the Chanteuse!
Runners up received 1 voucher to attend a workshop, and 5 Piggie Points to be used in-store at Lomography Austin!
Congratulations to all the winners! We had A LOT of fantastic entries, so lets show some love to our group of winners! The exhibition will be up for the entire month of December, and we’ve got a whole month of festive workshops for the holiday season, so come on by!
Monday – Friday: 11 am – 3 pm / 4 pm – 7 pm
Saturday: 11 am – 9 pm
