Lomography Awards: Instant: Crafty in an Instant

Crafty in an Instant

Prepare those scissors, bleach and thread — it's time to gets hands-on with your favorite instant snapshots.

One of the advantages of shooting with an instant camera is having those prints readily available when the inspiration to experiment strikes. For this competition, we challenge you to creatively alter and add your unique style to those instant photographs. Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Chemical Route: Who says film soups are only possible with a roll film? Try this technique and pour liquids on that instant shot for a grunge effect. If you're feeling less adventurous, you can simply twist the still-developing print or pull off those white borders for an unpolished yet interesting look.
  • Art Project: For those who want to be more in control, try decorating your instant photo using stickers, embroidering new elements, or pasting other materials.

Each participant may submit up to 10 photographs. Five winners will get a voucher worth 50 EUR/USD for our Online Shop. This competition serves as the qualifying round for the Now or Never category of our TEN AND ONE Annual Lomography Photo Awards 2019.
