You may have heard that the Lomography Gallery Store Chicago is in the works. If not, here’s your notice! Not only are we getting ready to open this analogue hub next to Lake Michigan, but we want your amazing images of the Windy City to be a permanent part of the Gallery Store’s soon to be unveiled LomoWall!

Good news to people from Illinois and the awe inspiring Midwest! Lomography is expanding its reach and will soon open a new gallery store in the great city of Chicago. Keeping spirit with the tradition, what’s a Lomography Gallery Store without a stunning city-centric LomoWall? That’s where you come in! Let’s make a permanent mark on our soon-to-be-unveiled storefront and help build the LGS Chicago’s LomoWall.

We want you to submit your Chicago-related photos – Everything from standing in line at Hot Doug’s, eating Rainbow Cone during the Taste, cheering on the Bears at Soldier Field, trying to touch the dolphins at Shed, getting the “cheaper” skyline view at the bar in the Hancock Center, gathering your friends for a crazy view at the Bean! Everything that we love about Chicago should be on this LomoWall!

We want some amazing shots, so we’re setting the submission limit equivalent to a roll of film. It doesn’t matter what the subject is as long as it was shot in Chicago. Our favorites will be immortalized in the huge new LomoWall!

Can’t wait to meet you, Chicago!


  • Film/Camera Type: Any photo taken with an analogue camera not digitally enhanced/manipulated.
  • Upload Limit: 36 photos
  • Minimum Photo Dimensions: Submissions must be at least 1220px. This is to ensure that the photos for the wall will be in good quality.

    That's too bad that I won't be able to submit any pictures. I'm heading to Chicago this weekend, but the Rumble will have just ended by then.
