This year, Shoutbox remained an open space for Lomographers across the world to share the latest news, exciting experiments, and random queries (photography-related or otherwise!). One can certainly feel the sense of camaraderie and passion from every single message that pops on this humble space. And making it even livelier are these community members who are always ready to share their voice. Meet our top shoutbox users of 2017.
