The Lomography Annual Photography Awards: the TEN AND ONE is the world’s biggest competition for the experimental photography scene. Through our 11 categories, 10 unchanging themes, and one that changes yearly to reflect contemporary issues, we aim to celebrate the ingenuity and creativity of film photographers around the world and their thought-provoking visual stories. Together with our esteemed panel of judges, we proudly present the winners of the Lomography Awards 2020!
As the Special Category for 2020, Future Generations posed a challenge for photographers to reflect on their hopes and visions for the next generations. May these striking photographs inspire you to move forward and strive for a better future.
Photography lets us freeze moments that our ordinary eyes can't catch and chase as clearly. There's art even in fast-paced, action-packed moments as proven by these eagle-eyed photographers.
Our travel plans may be put to a halt by the current global pandemic, but we have these wanderlust-inducing frames to tide us over until we can freely and fearlessly explore the world again!
From various film-cameras-lens combination to shooting at different angles, there's more than one way of looking at a scene and translating it into a photograph. See your surroundings in a brand new light with these fresh perspectives!
A good portrait is all about capturing the presence and the story of a person during that particular moment — a feat that these winning shots accomplished with sincerity and thoughtfulness.
Reality may present itself in vibrant colors, but shooting with a black and white film allows us to reset how we approach and photograph the world. Appreciate these timeless masterpieces and their rich tones, textures, and lighting beautifully captured in monochrome.
Now or Never
With a creative mindset, instant photographs can be elevated into one-of-a-kind, artistic prints. Get a new idea for your next spontaneous shoot through these cleverly executed instant images.
Off the Grid
Slow down and take a break from that pixel-saturated routine. We got these calming, breathtaking nature scenes to rest your weary eyes and minds on!
Trial and Error
Experimentation is at the heart of the Lomography movement. Take notes on how to subvert the rules for eye-catching, uniquely analogue snaps.
Let's celebrate the ordinary and find beauty even in the most mundane circumstances. Street photography is all about reveling in the everyday and all its candid moments that make life as colorful and amusing as it is!
When a single frame is not enough, time to put those stories in motion. Creating a short film requires discipline and patience and we laud every artist who chooses to dip their toes in filmmaking the analogue way! Grab your popcorn and sit back — the finest films of the year are here to keep you entertained.
All our winners will get a Lomography camera each and a spot in our Hall of Fame. Congratulations!
