Submit your images and stories as seen through a woman’s lens (perspective), get published in the upcoming colette x DianaloguesLomography collaboration Dianalogues 1: “Through a woman’s lens” book and receive a limited edition Diana F+ camera personalised with your name!

Together with colette, the notorious Paris-based boutique and old Lomography friends, we are teaming up for a unique collaboration. We’ll be releasing the special edition Dianalogues 1 Book – a collection of words & images expressed by the female perspective.



1. images shot with the Diana+ camera

2. stories written by you.

*Each Dianalogue focusses on a specific theme.

To kick off this new challenge, Dianalogues No.1 – “through a woman’s lens” will focus strictly on female perspectives on life. We’re really digging for unique submissions with a message from the female perspective (lens) of life; so be as creative, unusual, surprising, philosophical, funny, strong, provocative and as inspiring as you can! With the Diana+ in one hand and your pen (or keyboard) in the other, you’ve got all it takes to win a stunning feature in the upcoming colette x Lomography Diana+ Dianalogues: “Through a woman’s lens” book.


colette is famed for being one of the world’s leading boutiques when it comes to groundbreaking products and trendsetting urban style, art and culture.

When brainstorming on our special edition colette Diana F+ camera we decided it would be interesting to explore and celebrate the great diversity of feminine views and voices, in connection with the Diana’s feminine name. No sooner said than done, Sarah, colette’s Miss, flicked through her rolodex and invited 12 of her most precious female friends from all over the world to add their unique outlook to our book.

That’s one part of the book.
The other part is going to be created by you!



Submit your Dianalogue until 7th of October and keep your fingers crossed. If your Dianalogue impresses our die-hard jury you’ll be among the 10 winners announced in the coming weeks.

Your submission must include:
10 images, shot with the Diana+ or Diana F+ camera and at least half an A4 page of groundbreaking text.

The prize:
A limited Diana F+ colette camera branded with your own name. We’re talking serious business here.
You’ll get your own personal limited edition DianaF+ camera of 1 piece.

    Is this really exclusively for female dianagraphers or is it only the shot that must represent a female point of vue, that means a women in a situation and the story telling something about this situation...???

  5. carlymaberry
    carlymaberry ·

    Can I use to the 35mm back, or do you want only 120 shots?

  6. brendend

    Yeah, I'm also kind of confused about allowing males to participate, while it implies women only, it doesn't directly say CHICKS ONLY. :\

    @vicuna :: It is "Through a Women's Lens" from the "female perspective," so yes, you have to be female. The colette lady is having 12 of her "favorite female friends" do this and there is room for 10 more winning women to do the rest of the book!

    hmmmm.... to make it clear... is my MALE way of thinking and shooting FEMALE okay? or do i have to be female to enter? or is it just the spirit? the spirit of being female?
    you know, i took some shots of my nephew i want to enter and... but AM I ALLOWED TO?

  14. severin

    the jury will select the best stories according to the theme of "through a woman's lens".
    ultimately, "through a woman's lens" also refers to the diana as a female name - so whoever takes shots with this camera actually looks "through a woman's lens"...

    --in the end nobody knows who, male or female, is behind a lomography.com nickname. .

  15. mephisto19
    mephisto19 ·

    indeed...! i always thought scootypie is a man and trcayvmoore a woman. and i still don't know about kokakoo...
