Back then it was almost taboo to be friends with a nerd or a geek, or to be one. But lately, more and more people are trying to adopt their look, making it popular and “fashionable” … guess the tables have turned, eh?

Whip out some pictures honouring the inner geek in you or your friends!

People love competitions and Lomographers are no different. But more than a search for standout photographs, the TEN AND ONE Annual Competition celebrated the community's shared love for photography and its power to create enduring stories. This list by no means set a conclusive standard on what makes an image good or not. But nonetheless, we're proud to introduce the photographs that took the top spot in the Human Stories category.
