The future is definitely Analogue! Subtle or utterly flambuoyant, We celebrate the different shades of colour, hue and natural beauty only analogue photography can provide to the world! Huge Piggy Prizes are at stake for this rumble series so be sure to put out some colour for everyone!
Whether you’re shooting a drab London street on a rainy day or overdosing on psychedelic hues in a carnival, colors play an important part in analogue photography. It could something as simple as picking the lady in red winking at you in the crowd, or just shooting and over-exposing slide film to drive the saturation up, up, up when you cross-process it! So which do you prefer? Do you like better the subtle nuances and realistic skin tone of negative film, or the wild, guns-blazing super saturation of X-Pro? Tell us in pictures! The best entry gets 75 mouth-watering Piggies while the next 4 runners up each get 35 big ones!

Go retro-futuristic with these photographs by Maria Svarbova that show off extremely controlled scenes and figures in mid-movement, no frill or joy, just austere compositions and the remarkable displays of discipline.
In the olden times, traveling was a rather intimate hobby. How so? To share one's journey to the unknown would require effort. Effort, in the sense you'd have to send them a keepsake with notes on the back. So why not relive the tradition of sending postcards with the Lomo'Instant Square?
The '90s was a memorable, incredible decade. Apart from the founding of Lomography and the community, there were other fads and pop culture icons that made noise, forever etching in the minds of many. Remember those Calvin Klein waistbands? We remember them, too.
