After having received many ideas for the "Win Your Dream Space" competition, we picked a winner with a most unusual proposal. Check out more about what went down and all the cool things that happened at Lomography Gallery São Paulo after the jump.
The winning proposal for São Paulo’s Win You Dream Space Competition came from KeKanto. We must admit that the proposal was totally unexpected and took us completely by surprise.
On the day, the Customers who arrived at the Gallery Store were treated to a little madness. While a DJ played 30 minute sets, Lomographers were pampered by a hairdresser and a makeup artist inspired by the music being played.
Curious to see the results? We left cameras scattered throughout the store for visitors to snap with as they wish. We think the results are really cool!
We really enjoyed this experience and we hope there’ll be many more to come.
Unfortunately, it happens sometimes that your resulting pictures are not what you expected - the image doesn't look that good, the colors are bland, and the subject is banal. Indeed, it couldn't be picture of the year! Herein I propose a second chance for your pictures by modifying your 35mm negatives. Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.

Berenice Abbott documented the sped-up pulse, concrete towers, and busy crowds of New York. These black and white images, as well as her pioneering work in science photography, appear in a thicker reissue of a classic Aperture book.
Photographer Daniel King followed a group of Ukrainian youth at a time of grave political unrest. These lads and misses had what King discovered to be curiously normal lives, a stark contrast to hawkish protests in the news.
