Meaningful Places

Through your instant snapshot, show us that special place you hold dear to your heart.

Most of us take photographs to remember. Memories can be fragile and seeing a clear-cut depiction of that particular moment allows one to recall it more vividly. In a way, images work like a time machine, but for this challenge, we want you to go against time and space with instant photography.

To win this competition, browse through your collection of nostalgic instant snapshots and showcase that special place you cherish the most. Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Visual Diary: Allow us to get the bigger picture on what this location means to you by scribbling a note or two within the shot's frames.
  • Zoom In: Tell the story of how the details on this site played a part in your unique experience. Maybe, it's the pastel gradient of the sunset sky, that comforting aroma of coffee, or the way that special someone smiled throughout your conversation. Focus on the minutiae that make the seemingly ordinary beach, coffee shop, or grocery store yours.
  • Fresh Views: Being on foreign land is always an exciting endeavor. On your next trip abroad, focus on the change of scenery. Shoot photographs of that century-old castle or that striking spice market that you don't often see back home.

Each participant may submit up to 10 photographs. This competition serves as the qualifying round for the Now or Never category of our TEN AND ONE Annual Lomography Photo Awards 2019.
