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!

My wife and I suffered a family loss in October 2013 so we decided to shift things around and have a celebration of life—a wedding, actually—to associate our loss with the beginning of something positive and memorable. We have been together for nearly 13 years and after getting married, we headed off on a three-month trip to South America and a few other stops to complete a round-the-world loop back to Australia.
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.
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!
Photographer Florian Reischauer is no stranger to the Lomography community. In 2013, our LomoAmigo took a Lubitel 166+ out for a spin and told us about his famous blog, "Pieces of Berlin". A few years earlier, he took time to take part in the

For many years, Kenny had already been purchasing film and accessories from the Online Shop before he noticed our bustling community. Looking for a place to connect with people who share his passion for shooting on film, he immediately created a LomoHome and started sharing his stunning collection of street photographs.
A freelance music designer with a strong penchant for analog photography, David Elalouf has been sharing his wonderful photographs in the community for 10 years now. His LomoHome not only became an avenue for him to share his work but also a bridge that forged strong friendships with fellow lomographers. Let's welcome our newest LomoGuru from Paris, France, dudizm!
December brings with it Winter, the end of the year and the last chances to get those photographs taken that you wanted to do the rest of the year. I decided to kick off December with a slew of photography adventures and a few camera purchases.
