It would keep the spirit of lomo photography for at least 20 more years:) plus it would be the first time I've ever won a give away:) it would be a great holiday treat.-Clare D.

      After spending the entire day yesterday looking at toy cameras online, I would absolutely love to win this prize. I have a degree in Visual Arts and I specialised in Photography. Lofi images have always been my favourite :-)

      Excellent, I was reading about Lomography just last week and discussing it with some of our photographers at work. Now an opportunity to get some first hand experience to show and discuss with 30 or so professional Photographers dealing with Digital Photography on a commercial level.

      My youngest daughter has just joined a photography group at school as she has a great eye for composition and enjoys capturing images on film, the whole family enjoy being behind the camera and capturing wonderful moments around us so having a chance at this competition is so exciting.

      I LOVE photography - I even used to work as a photographer, but sadly have mostly given up as my camera is so old + has a spot on the lens & I have had too many other financial committments to allow me to buy a new one :( Hope I win :)

      Using Lomography cameras creates such a sense of nostalgia. I do not have a Diana yet but am always expanding my collection of cameras. You have all the digital apps which replicate the lomo effects but it is just not the same. Nothing beats the feeling of taking a picture on the fly and having to wait until the film is developed to see the finished results. I would encourage everyone to discover the magic of lomo. Do! :)
