Oink oink, dear Lomographers!

Mr. Pig is not the savviest techie in the barn, but he’s putting his foot forward to communicate better with you! We know you love those porkers, so we finally set-up a single account for all your Piggy questions:

piggies@lomography.com

What are Piggy Points?

Piggy Points are your pork-flavoured admission ticket to instant gratification in our online shop. They are online discount vouchers worth 1 USD/EUR/GBP. Read More to save up and buy you that swanky Lomo LC-A Instant Back+

Some important things to consider regarding your Piggy points (Consider this before you make a request!):

  • You cannot use Piggies for orders 24.99 EUR/USD/GBP and below.
  • Only a maximum of 5-9 Piggies* could be used at checkout for orders valued 25-49.99 EUR/USD/GBP.
  • If you order anything valued at 50 EUR/USD/GBP or more, any amount of Piggies* are allowed at checkout (from 1 Piggy to as much as you have)
  • ‘Free shipping’ option for select items (e.g. LC-A+) are not applicable to orders with Piggies in the checkout.

What are valid Piggy Requests?

  • Piggies that haven’t arrived in 2 weeks
  • Piggy extensions (given that you have any pending items for the Magazine)
  • ‘Missing’ Piggies – Missing in the sense that we have already awarded other users with their Piggies but we overlooked yours
  • (Reasonable) hate mail for Mr. Pig

What are invalid Piggy Requests?

  • Piggy requests for published articles/competitions that have only been recently published. Give us a few days to process your Piggies!
  • Piggy requests without any details
  • Random Piggy Requests (like – can I get free 100 Piggy Points?) – Mr. Pig is on a tight budget!

Ready to send a request?

Always:
1. Include your LomoHome address (we can’t process your request without your username!)
2. State the amount of requested Piggies
3. Add other important details (article url, reason, etc.)
4. Be as nice and calm as you can when e-mailing Mr. Pig

Never:
1. Spam Mr. Pig – One e-mail at a time, Mr. Pig says! Piggy requests are put on queue so give Mr. Pig a few working days before sending another mail! Otherwise he will die of exhaustion!
2. Ask Mr. Piggy for directions on how to go to the Market

Piggy requests and follow-ups done on the Shoutbox and Staff Homes will not be accommodated anymore beginning 2 March 2010. Don’t let Mr. Pig cast an evil eye on you! This will make Mr. Pig’s and your lives easier – as well as those Piggies flying happily faster to your LomoHomes!

    "Only a maximum of 5-9 Piggies* could be used at checkout for orders valued 25-49.99 EUR/USD/GBP" How long has this been the case for? Can I not use my 35 piggies to pay for a £35 Diana?

    Thank goodness. I get so irritated with the shoutbox spamming and always feel bad when leaving a message in a home. Good to have a definite email. Keep this article alive long enough for everyone to see.

    Creative Vision, Personified:The Community's Most Creative Lomographers

The Lomography community is no stranger to these instances. In fact, the community is filled with brilliant minds who are always ready to refine existing techniques and look for innovative ways to express their visions and ideas. Here are just a few of the creative lomographers we've come to love over the years.

    Lomography Fisheye No.2: Seven Years of Wonder

    Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.
