Today, we're also launching the first (hopefully of many) contests. In order to enter, you'll need to find a Phototuts+ tutorial that you like. Use your trusty film camera to execute the tutorial. Then you'll upload those images to Lomography.com. It's as simple as that!
Enter the contest here.
Keep in mind that this is film photography contest, so images made with digital cameras will not be considered.
