  • My Year in Analogue: We’re interested to know about how your 2014 went. Make an analogue photo diary of 2014 and include the juiciest and most memorable highlights of your year. Tell us about these milestones, and show them in pictures.
  • Something New: Have you managed to start the year right by trying out something new — a new camera, a new film, a new hobby? Whatever it is, we hope you’ve also captured those first moments on film, and you can tell us something about it!
  • Your Analogue Resolutions: Now that we have a fresh, new year ahead of us, it’s time once again for us to roll out those resolutions — promises we intend to keep to make our analogue lives a lot better this 2014!
  • Your Analogue Bucket List: Aside from those resolutions, why don’t you also share with us your analogue bucket list — plans, wishes, aspirations you wish you can achieve, analogue-wise, for the year ahead.
  • Holiday Happenings on Film: Whether it’s a concert, exhibit, sports event or festival, or a holiday celebration with family and friends, share it with the rest of the community through pictures and let them know what’s happening on your side of the world.
  • Fresh from the Lab: We’re always curious about what our fellow lomographers have been up to. So, if you’ve got a new set of beautiful photos, fresh from the lab, that you’re itching to share with us, tell us about it in this new series!

  • My Holiday Hang Out: It’s still colder in some parts of the world and snowflakes are appearing on window panes, where do you go for a cup of hot cocoa or a filling meal? If it’s still a bit warm on your end, where do you troop with friends for refreshments, or to simply hang out? Tell us about your favorite hang out, and what makes it special.
  • Home for the Holidays: Planning a holiday, or just been to one? Tell us about a recent trip, or a place you want to go back to on your next holiday, and show us the splendor of the said location through pictures!
  • Lomography Day Trips: Over the past year, we’ve been sharing with you our itinerary recommendations for day trips around the world’s biggest cities. This year, it’s time for you to take charge and show us around your town or city! What are some of the must-visit spots that we should head straight into, if we only have a day to see the sights in your town? Tell us, show us, guide us!

  • Group Photography Tips: It’s the season for reunions with family and friends. It’s the time to see cousins from the other side of the continent and friends from college.

And don’t forget to show us those pictures, wacky ones included.

  • Extreme Camera Modifications: It’s one thing to tinker with your beloved film cameras for cool effects, and it’s another to modify them permanently whether in form or function.
