We've partnered with the new flick "Violet & Daisy" starring Saoirse Ronan and Alexis Bledel. This film's all about being edgy in style, so send us your photos that are "beautiful and badass" for some sick prizes!
Directed by Academy Award winner Geoffrey Fletcher, Violet & Daisy is the story of Daisy (Saorise Ronan) and her surreal and violent journey through New York city with her volatile partner-in-crime, Violet (Alexis Bledel). These two young assassins face a series of opponents, including one unusually mysterious man, in a life-altering encounter. Be sure to catch the movie on June 7!
We love the cinematography in the movie—an edgy, comic-book-like film that takes place in NYC. Join this pair of gum-chewing teenage rebels by shooting analog photographs with the theme “beautiful and badass.” It could be anything from the dark, dive bars in the city to a stealthy portrait you’ve captured. Surprise us!

One special edition poster (never before printed!) signed by director Geoffrey Fletcher
Inclusion of winning photos in iTunes Extras of the digital release of “Violet & Daisy”
Teaser and final theatrical one-sheet signed by Geoffrey Fletcher

Five runner ups will each receive:

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.
The things you can see at a fashion show are incredibly beautiful and almost perfect, even beyond the runway and further backstage. Fashion Photographer Anna Fischer shows us some backstage scenes during the New York Fashion Week with this erotic and beautiful Petzval photo series.
Done shooting and want your films to be processed? We can process your colour and black & white 35mm, 120 or 110 films! Development, prints and scans are also included. (Service availability depends on your markets)

You are probably already familiar with our German Petzval LomoAmigo Steffen Böttcher, aka Stilpirat. He recently released his very first audio book about his adventures as photographer, "Abenteuer Fotografie," featuring the beautiful Petzval lens on the cover. Through this competition, our German-speaking community gets the chance to win three of his audio books as well as his photo book about Ghana. So what do you need to do?

A weekend without a lomowalk seems bad, at least for me. One Saturday morning, I decided to join my friends in their lomowalk. It was all cloudy at first but it didn't stop me from going out and walking. I brought my new Nikon FM2 and some expired rolls, just to test my camera. Was it just me being sleepy, or was my Nikon FM2 acting up? My photos turned out grainy, pale, and, in my opinion, looking so 1990s?
In celebration of the mindblowing solar eclipse we had the other day, we ran a competition and asked you to tag your analogue photos centered around our great big yellow friend! Check out the winners now!
In December last year James Wright, editor and creative director of So It Goes Magazine, went on a two-week trip to Sri Lanka, "a place so long on our bucket list, but up until then, as yet unvisited," he writes on the first of his three-part photo diary. Herein is the first of his series that chronicles his adventures, highlighted by a selection of breathtaking images of the Sri Lankan countryside and the locals, among many other images, captured with his trusty photographic companions: the Leica MP, Lomo LC-A+, and an assortment of films including the LomoChrome Purple.
Simeon Smith is a musician who recorded the sounds of our film cameras in action and made these samples available as a free download. We couldn't resist interviewing him about this project and taking a look at some of his photos. Meet the man behind the cams here.
