Now in its seventh year, the Lomography Awards: the TEN AND ONE is the world's biggest competition for the experimental photography scene. Through 11 categories (10 unchanging themes and one special topic that changes annually to reflect contemporary issues), we aim to highlight the ingenuity and creative visions of film photographers worldwide. Meet the winners of the Lomography Awards 2021!
Every One is Everybody
This year's special category, Every One is Everybody, is a celebration of humanity's diversity and how each person can lift others with their unique selves and abilities. May these powerful portraits inspire you to take pride in yourself!
A photo-worthy moment can sometimes pass unnoticed. Good thing, these eagle-eyed photographers are always ready to get into action and capture these impressive snaps of people living the best of their lives.
Now that borders are reopening, where do you plan to take your camera next? Here's a tour of some of the most breathtaking places around the globe—no tickets or flights required!
Same scene, different perspectives. These striking images prove that there's no one way of looking and photographing things. Get ready to gain brand new eyes with how inventive these winning shots are.
What's the secret behind a good portrait? It's more about making a genuine connection with your muse to merge your ideas into a cohesive photo. Take inspiration from these skillful portraitists!
Shooting in black and white is an effective way to hone your photography skills. Without colors to consider, you get to pay more attention to lighting, patterns, and movements that lead to a striking shot such as in these monochromatic masterpieces.
Now or Never
Instant photography balances the immediacy of the digital camera and the magic of analogue, making it a perfect middle ground for those who want to dip their toes in both worlds. It may be seen as more casual than other film formats, but these skilled instant shooters elevated it to an art form on its own.
Off the Grid
The hustle and bustle of city life can be exhausting. Escape the urban noise for a while through these immersive shots that can make you feel truly one with nature.
Trial and Error
If you haven't tried cross-processing, doing film soups, or shooting a multiple exposure image, are you really a Lomographer? Step out of your comfort zone and embrace the unpredictability of analogue. Allow these experimental photos to be your mood board!
The streets will never run out of stories to tell. Be sharp, be smart, and always take a camera with you! Who knows that decisive moment is just waiting around the corner.
When a single frame is not enough, it's time to put those stories in motion! Watch these captivating short films and be inspired to don your director's hat.
All our winners will get a Lomography camera each and a spot in our Hall of Fame. Congratulations!
