Some things are as simple as Black and White, this competition is one of them. Show us your best B&W shots for a chance to win win win!

Light Leaks and Lomography have joined forces to give you, our esteemed lomographers a chance to win some amazing prizes. For those of you who may not know Light leaks, here´s a brief intro: Light Leaks Magazine is all about low-fidelity photography. They cover the world of simple analogue film cameras. They feature photographers who use these cameras, and photos taken by them.

But, since there´s no such thing as a free lunch, we are going to need for you to submit your most prized black and white analogue photographs. What´s in it for you?

More than our usual amount of winners, the ten luckiest of you will enjoy the following:

4 Grand Prize winners will take home not only a delicious subscription to Light Leaks Magazine, and a brand new Lomographic pal, the Diana Mini Petite Noire, but they will also be published in the next issue of Light Leaks Magazine!

1 Honorable Mention will take home a subscription to Light Leaks Magazine and the Diana Mini Petite Noire

And 5 Runners Up will each get a subscription to Light Leaks Magazine!

Join now and get a chance to be featured in an Light Leaks issue as well as gain fame in the Lomography community!

There are a few tough as nails requirements to enter:

You can only submit 10 images (so pick your best!)
All photos must have been taken with an analogue camera (please, no Photoshop!)
You must have a very high resolution scan ready so we can prepare them for print in Light Leaks if you are a grand prize winner!

    I originally submitted a couple photos taken with my Yashica 635...but after looking this over I'm assuming they are only accepting photos that were taken with toy/plastic cameras?
