The time has come to announce the 3 winners for one of the most hardest-to-judge rumbles ever - a special Lomographic tribute to iconic American photographer Irving Penn!
As a special tribute to the iconic American photographer Irving Penn, we invited you to come up with your own black-and-white photos in the style of Mr. Penn’s work. There were so many lovely portraits and fashion-inspired pictures, it was difficult trimming down the winners to just 3!

As contenders for the Nixon Surf Challenge title confronted the swell and unforgiving weather in Kamchatka, Russia, we challenged you to show us what the ‘riding life’ is all about through your analogue photos. Nixon has announced the Surf Challenge winner – it’s time we announced ours.
There is nothing better than a photo shot at the perfect moment. Henri Cartier-Bresson's principle on "The Decisive Moment" is a principle that we should still follow to this day. A perfectly-timed photo creates impact, whether it's one of a friend jumping into the pool or a couple emerging from the ceremony on their wedding day. For this rumble, we want to see that breathtaking moment, shot at the perfect time. And you showed us what it's like to be on time.
In line with this year's Film Photography Day celebration, we went on a tough yet exciting search for the best analogue portraits. Our mission's over and now it's time to uncover the fantastic photographs we've found!
William Helburn was one of the greatest ad photographers never quite known. His name remained anonymous behind famous ads for Coca-Cola, Buick, Revlon and Max Factor. He brought out the plush side of Kodachrome and surprised the American public with sexy humor. The credit is long overdue, but a recent book pays tribute to Helburn's vibrant career.

Justin Quinnell’s expertise when it comes to pinhole wizardry is unquestionable. This photographer and lecturer from Bristol, United Kingdom, has crafted the most unusual of pinhole projects, from installing cameras onto ships cruising around the Caribbean to taking photos of his kids being born from inside his mouth. One other project that he is known for is being able to make a pinhole camera from a soda can. Watch the video below and learn how!
This article is dedicated to arguably one of the most famous street photographers in the world, Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908-2004). On this occasion, I felt obliged to write a tribute to this great artist whom I consider the "Mozart of Photography." His photos are inimitable, and to try to reproduce his innate sense of composition, harmony, and choice of the right moment is but an illusion. So I chose an unusual way to pay tribute, the only way possible for me. Take a look!
