We’d also like to remind everyone that your submissions to the Magazine should contain only the photos you’ve taken, unless you’re writing about a specific artist, photographer, project, etc. that you’d like to share with the Community.

This Month’s Requests

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

  • Lomo Fashion Spread: Ever dreamt of having your work featured on Vogue, Elle, or perhaps Nylon Magazine? Think you have what it takes to be a glamour, fashion, or runway photographer? Or maybe your sister’s a chic style icon who poses really well, and you’d like to share those lookbook worthy snapshots you took? Now is your chance to show off! Tell us about that fashionable moment, and capture all that attitude and pizazz on film.
  • Picture This: Style: For this month’s Picture This challenge, we’d like to see some photos you’ve taken that represent everything stylish, elegant, and fashionable for you. 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 style!
  • A Day in the Life of a Student: It’s going to be back to school for some of us, and if you’re among them, we’d like for you to share with us a slice of your life as a student though your photos and stories!
  • Your Autumn Story: Let the leaves rustle, let the winds blow. Fall isn’t sunny, or warm, or festive at all. But some people absolutely love it when it’s fall. What about you? Tell us your autumn story. Capture and share a memorable event that happens during autumn, or simply tell us why you think it’s the best season of all.

  • The World’s Fashion Capitals: Do you have the passion for fashion? Then we bet you have some favorite style spots in the following fashion capitals: Milan, New York, Tokyo, Paris, London, Madrid, Barcelona, Los Angeles, Rome, Sao Paulo, Berlin, Antwerp, Johannesberg, Hong Kong, and Sydney. If you’ve ever been to any of them, do share with us your lomographs and stories about your favorite shopping spots. You can even make a street style post featuring some stylish people you’ve spotted!
  • My Alma Mater: Not among those lomographers who are going back to school? Maybe you still have a handful of lomographs you’ve taken around your beloved school campus. Why don’t you walk us down memory lane and show us your snaps of your alma mater, and of course, tell us some of your campus stories!
  • Autumn Wonderland: There will always be spots and locations where it’s best to enjoy what the seasons have to offer. Autumn will soon start the annual shedding of leaves, so if your part of the world turns into an Autumn Wonderland in the fall season, tell us about it and show us some of your snaps!
