In 2009 the Russian lomographic community grew rapidly. So our friends from the Russian Embassy decided to start 2010 with a competition - for a whole year and with monthly winners - to feed the photographic hunger!
During the last time the lomographic community Russia grew faster than we could count. The new generation of eager lomographers makes it now even harder to choose the best from the best lomographic masterpieces!
To give all of them the possibility to show and compete with their analogue work in different categories, we (your friends from the Russian Embassy) initiated a one year long contest!
We proudly present to you, ladies and gentlemen, the RUSSIANMONTHLYLOMOGRAPHICCONTEST 2010!
And let us introduce to you the most independent jury you can imagine – the lomographers themselves!
The 10 monthly winners (who will be rewarded with a camera each) will be chosen by the majority of the votes from the community!
Additionally the photos of the month will take part in the big PHOTO OF THEYEAR contest. Those winners will be chosen by a special jury and will receive a priceless surprise! All the other participants still have the chance to be part of a lomowall at the end of the year!

1. Living legend (Lomo LC-A, LC-A+)
2. Medium Format (Lomography medium format cameras)
3. MiniRevolution (Diana Mini)

Last month, we launched the very first photo competition to honor the phenomenal New Petzval Lens. With over 300 submissions, choosing the very best ones was certainly a challenge! Are you ready to see who made the cut?
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!
We sought for your best shots from the past year and received a staggering amount of more than 2,200 beautiful submissions within one month! It took a while to carefully go through all of the amazing analogue entries, and we have finally selected 3 lucky winners of the Lomography and caseable - Best Shots of 2013 Competition.
The Lomography x The Victoria and Albert Museum HORST Rumble was so successful with over 800 entries! As you can imagine it's been a tough challenge deciding on the winners but we've done it! Read on to find out who the winners are.
It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.
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!
Hello, fellow lomographers! To be honest, ever since I started working last year, I haven't been able to write a single analogue lifestyle piece. But today I decided to write something about my days, especially about my weekend in Bandung. It's not much but I take it as the start of a new beginning in writing all over again here. So, here's my weekend in Bandung!
He is a graphic designer from Kassel, Germany who has been a Community member for about a decade. His ten-year stay has been remarkably fruitful. Aside from honing his photography skills, it is in this Community of ours where he met his girlfriend, made a lot of friends, and helped organize a huge weekend meet-up for fellow lomographers. Say hello to Daniel Lauterbach, also known as trash-gordon-from-outer-space, our LomoGuru of the Week!
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? Show us your lomographic adventures!
