Currently running in its fifth year, we created the Lomography Annual Photography Awards: the TEN AND ONE as a means to celebrate the creativity, talent, and passion of film photographers worldwide. As the biggest competition in the experimental photography scene, we aim to put the spotlight on undiscovered individuals, whether they are a hobbyist or already working as a professional photographer and share their unique way of seeing the world through our 11 diverse categories—10 fixed and one that changes yearly to reflect contemporary issues.
After a long deliberation with our esteemed panel of judges and Lomography staff, we're proud to announce the winners that captured our attention with their thoughtful and eye-catching visual stories. Put your hands together to the champions of our Lomography Awards 2019!
