We are in no position to predict the winner, but we do have our favorites, from the ones in competition and otherwise. In no definitive order, here is a list of 10 films that we'd like to see.
As you may already know, the Autochrome Lumière first hit the market in 1907. Shortly after this, influential American photographer and gallery owner Alfred Stieglitz began experimenting with this new color photography himself after witnessing its first commercial demonstration while on a trip to Europe.
We'd like to introduce you to our latest Petzval Artist, Shima Eleven - a professional photographer based in Hong Kong.

Reminiscent of traveling photographers of the 19th century, Giles Clement tours through the country with his assistant, Zeiss (an Irish Terrier), offering everything from portrait sessions to wildly creative photographic projects for magazines and companies. And although his mode of transportation may have evolved with the times, his photographic method and gear have changed very little compared to the photographers of days past. Now, with over 3 years of tintyping experience under his belt and an impressive list of clients, he's carved a name out for himself as an accomplished tintyper and continues to spread his passion for this ages-old technique everywhere he goes.
"Photography is a reflection of heart." These are the words of Martin Liu, a documentary, wedding and portrait photographer from Hong Kong. He believes that the photographer must understand the stories, experiences and values of his or her subjects to capture the different faces of love. To capture priceless moments for a smitten pair, he brings the Minitar-1 Lens to Mongolia for a one-of-a-kind shoot. Hear the story behind this shoot, and the rest of Martin Liu's journeys in this exclusive interview.
Photo travelogues are often sprightly, the forms defined and the colors sharp. Réka Koti has a completely different interpretation. A location is a basis for experiments. Nature is a double-exposure detail or a nebular extension of her model’s frock. Branches and leaves are blurred to look like paint strokes. The outcome is mysterious, and Lomography can’t help asking: What is the alchemy behind these dusky pictures?
Joe Brook is one of the most popular photographers in the West Coast skate scene, shooting for magazines like Trasher, Juxtapoz, Rolling Stone, and different outlets such as PDN and Kodak. Having previous experience with an old Petzval lens mounted on a 4x5 camera, it was but natural for him to try the new one. Brook talks about finding himself, his work, and shooting with the Lomograhy Petzval Lens in this exclusive interview.
When asked to recall the moment they first became truly interested in photography, most photographers would remember the magical feeling of picking up a hand-me-down or secondhand camera, the thrill of shooting an entire roll through, and the elation upon seeing and holding their first ever set of photographs. Caleb Savage, however, had quite a unique experience. At 10 years old, he had his first taste of working in the darkroom making prints at Boy Scout camp, thereby beginning a more than a decade-long affinity with photography.
Lomographer Carina, or landei in the community, regards the Sprocket Rocket as a "versatile plastic camera."
