Forget the rules. Take your camera everywhere. Use it any time. Don't think. Be Fast. Shoot from the hip!

These are just some of the 10 golden rules of Lomography (who also coincidently is our sponsor this year). Most importantly, it's summer time, what better time than now to get out your trusty film camera, pick up a new one if you don't hundreds already and get creative!

We want to see your best summer film shots.

Submission Deadline: September 18th, 2022
