We know it's been a long time since the LC-A Customization Competition, but we've finally got some updates for you! Check out some of our top favorites from our massive competition, and a quick update on our grand announcement!

It’s been over a year and you might have been thinking – whatever happened to the LC-A Customization Competition?

Well, we’ve received a ton of eye-popping designs worthy to be one of our future limited edition releases of the iconic Lomo LC-A+ and decisions are the most difficult thing to do especially with a competition as big as this! Fret not, as we’re giving you a quick teaser on some of what we really liked, before we finally announce our winner who will be flying off to the Lomography HQ in Vienna, Austria!

Presenting the top 10 designs as selected by the company board:

alvajero
cakebones
deniselai
hello_k_95600
lkfgjh
miamivice
mr_sid
viska
Frauke Brenner

Congratulations to our Top 10 participants, you will receive 20 Piggy Points each to be sent directly to your account!

We are still pondering on who will be the BIG winner, and we’re not going to back out from our word of that special free trip to visit our office in Vienna! We ask for a little more patience from you until we announce our winner, as it will be worth it!
