by James

Zoë may be guilty of “going digital”, but I know we have some analogue photographers among our fans. Well, good for you, because Lomography Germany is giving away over €17,000 worth of prizes in its competition “Menschen und Berufe deiner Stadt”. All you have to do is snap and upload an analog or lomo photo of “people or professions in your (German) city”. Something like this:

You have until 10th May to upload your photo to Then the photographers of the best 10 images in each of the competition’s 138 regions will be given a La Sardina Special Edition Camera. The 10 regional winners with the most votes on sponsor Das Telefonbuch’s Facebook Page win a trip to the exhibition in Cologne, where the overall winners of “Menschen und Berufe deiner Stadt“ will be honoured. There, the big prizes are dished out: €10,000 for the overall winner, €5,000 for second prize and €2,500 for third prize.

Pretty good huh? You can find full details about the competition (in German) on And even if you’re not a photographer, or you’ve (gasp!) gone digital, you can check out the awesome photos already uploaded to the Berlin gallery. Enjoy.
