News

While we are no longer accepting submissions for News articles, we still want your tips! Tips are considered articles where Lomography or analogue photography are featured. Shoot us an e-mail at tips@lomography.com, and you will be credited for every approved/published tip!

Analogue Lifestyle

  • Portraits of Innocence: Babies are among the most adorable subjects a photographer will ever have the chance to photograph, so if you’ve taken some beautiful baby portraits why not share them with us and tell us the stories behind them. Make us go “awww!”
  • Picture This: Happiness: For this month’s Picture This challenge, we’d like to see some photos you’ve taken that represent happiness for you. Is it someone’s beautiful smile or hearty laugh caught on film? A snap from a fun yearly event that you never miss? A photo of a place you’ve been where only happy memories were made? It can be just one photo or a handful of them — don’t forget to tell us what made you consider them as pictures of happiness!
  • Rock It Out in Analogue: Do you have a favorite band, or perhaps even a band of your own (or maybe your brother has one) that you’d like to feature? Now is the time to click away and take awesome photos of your favorite band, and tell us about them too. You could take their pictures as they perform, or in the comfort of your own garage. Doesn’t matter if they’re hella famous, hardcore, or indie-pop, click away and tell us about the band and their music.
  • Summer Music Festivals in Film: Summer is the season of music festivals in many parts of the world, so aside from your town’s usual festivities, we’d like to find out how your music
  • Fun Under the Sun: Summer is still here! Well, if you’re somewhere in the Northern Hemisphere, that is. It’s time for that much needed fun under the sun, so we’re sure you’d be heading outdoors to enjoy the warm sunshine. Tell us, show us a slice of your summer with your stories and photos!
