It often starts in the same way. You either saw a photo that was so great and told yourself that you had to get one of those too or you saw somebody on the street taking pictures with a strange looking camera. The question remains – “What is Lomography – and how on earth did you take that photo?”
Photos are after all the reason that you visit this website and the reason that you keep loading your cameras with film. This made us ask the question – why do we not have a daily photo award? Which brings us to the core of this article:
Each day we will search out the best picture uploaded to the our Photos section. The Photo will be featured on the cover page next to the Home of the Day and the owner of the picture will get 5 piggies! Anything that you can do to aid your chances of winning this award? Be sure to fill in the meta data with the correct camera, film, location used along with some tags describing the picture!
Luckily for daredye his photo makes him the first winner of this award!
PS – The Home of the Day winner will from now on receive a whooping 50 piggies!
