Is your trophy room feeling a bit bare and cold? It’s time to change that as we bring back the badges!
One of the most requested features of the old site from our loyal followers was the winner badges. We don’t blame you! Getting one of Lomography’s numerous awards such as Lomohome of the Day, Lomomission and Rumble Winners among others are a point of pride and rightfully deserves to be shown off! So we’re slowly bringing back all of your old awards including rumbles and so far, all awards from the beginning of old Lomography website to May 2009 have been migrated! Please wait for a few days for the cache to clear all these awards before following us up.

Light Painting is a cool technique that we love to do when we're in the mood for experimenting with photos. It's super easy and fun, and it only requires a dark room, a friend or two to collaborate with, a camera with long exposure mode and a light painting tool to get started. Check out 50 of the most vibrant light painting photos taken by your fellow Lomographers after the cut!
Rooms contain what the owner values or has come to hate (tucked in boxes, of course). Colors reveal mood swings. Gardens follow the season’s orders. A house keeps up with ever-changing whims and styles—one of the things that make it a home. Here’s something to inspire your next spruce-up.
There are many components that transform street photography shots into masterpieces.

Stop asking questions and start making statements. We have teamed up with the historic W Washington DC in conjunction with FotoDC to create a wall during the week of FotoWeekDC - one of the biggest photography festivals in the US.

It's Tipstember! For this month, we will be awarding 25 fat piggies to every tipster article that gets published on the Lomography Magazine.

If you don't have tricks up your sleeve, however, you can still contribute to the Magazine and let your voice be heard. Here are some suggestions.

It might be cold and snowy in some of the northern cities, but in other places, it's still quite sunny. Allow us to add a bit of sizzle to your new year with a special photo rumble with the help of our friends at Volcom.
We spend copious amounts of time stalking camera forums and researching specifications that "hunter" seems a more fitting term than "collector." And yet, when the time comes to pack all this game—the new or thrillingly ancient cameras—we DIY padding on the spot. (Guilty of trying to avoid the unappealing gear bag from the department store.) Last year though we stocked up on camera bags that are as cool as they are protective. Here are some of them.
For this competition, we sought for the best looking photos related to the theme "lightness," from images of something that's light as a feather to pictures that conjure up ideas of dreams and wisps of clouds. The jury has made its decision, and we are proud to present the winners.
