    The Lomographic Society International was invited by the city of London
and the London Design Festival to launch this years festival with an
exhibition of the extraordinary. A snapshot portrait of the world, the
LomoWorldWall with over 100.000 images is to be on display under open air on
Trafalgar Square during September 17 to 23.
    Looking back at the last decade of Lomography, the world-wide community,
as well as various groups during numerous projects around the world, have been
called to submit their images for the biggest LomoWall in Lomographic history.
Amongst other artists, Michael Young, Karim Rashid, Bill McAlister, Manu
Luksch and Kengo Kuma contributed to the LomoWorldWall with their Lomographic
projects.
    For the seventh Lomography World Congress an exorbitant crew of the
world's pick of Lomographers, more than 200 participants from abroad and
equally many locals, surrender to the repertoire of both enchantment and
challenge, designed for the restless, curious and gregarious crowd of the
world's creative minds.
    The congress features unique speeches and discussion forums on the
hottest topics on and off the issues of Lomography by creative leaders such as
publisher Edward Booth-Clibborn or Kunsthalle Wien director Gerald Matt. 1000
Lomography cameras are being offered to participants in the wide pallet of
challenges, events and workshops; their work will be added to the growing part
of the LomoWorldWall.
    The special occasion will also present itself as the worldwide launch of
the new Lomography camera: DIANA+ (http://www.lomography.com/diana).
    Accreditations to the congress can be granted to press representatives
reporting about the Lomography World Congress London 2007. The congress will
