Why participate?

Lomography competitions give you the opportunity to win glittering prizes, scoop up shop vouchers, earn some exposure, gain everlasting fame on our website and in our magazine – and even just an excuse to get excited, and show off your best shots. Additionally, all competitions now serve as qualifying rounds to enter our Ten and One - Annual Lomography Awards

How can I join?

If you have a Lomohome, any picture from it can be uploaded directly from your Lomohome archive to the Competition post. If you don’t have a Lomohome yet, don’t worry – you can register for one here or submit a photo without registering, via email! We are also working on a submission system that will make it easier to submit in future rounds.

What can I win?

We’re preparing a huge mountain of prizes for this year, worth over 20K! Up for grabs: a one week residency at the Lomography HQ, the finest Lomography cameras, and on-going supply of film for a year, additional shop vouchers, and much, much more.

How does the voting work?

Our jury panel will include a selection of trusted Lomographers from the community, some very special guests from the photo industry and press, as well as members of our own staff. They will be pouring through every single submission, and will collectively select favourites. From this pool, the final winners will be chosen through an internal discussion between the judges!
