A Guide to Piggies

Piggies, piggies, piggies! We just can't get enough of them ... and there are so many ways to win them!

Piggies, piggies, piggies! We just can’t get enough of them … and there are so many ways to win them!

But of course, there are certain guidelines and requirements to be followed so that you can attract these piggies all the way to you. Consider this as a friendly reminder ;) Read on!

Lomolocations – Please include at least FIVE images (at least 768px in width or height) along with your Location story. We’ve been receiving lots of entries containing only one image and one descriptive sentence, and we hate to see it go to waste. Tell us your experiences, shops to go to, and other interesting tidbits in the entry, and related links too. (10 piggies)

Camera Club – We will be dishing out 20 piggies for FULL REVIEWS AND GALLERY. When we say ‘reviews’ we mean your original reviews – what you like about the camera, what you don’t like about it, interesting features, tech specs, etc. (see previous camera reviews at the blog). Please include at least FIVE images
(at least 768px in width or height, but of course the bigger the better)! You can also upload nice shots for existing reviews, but these don’t get piggies – just lots of love and fame ;)

Round-the-Clock challenges – These 24-hour challenges occur 2x a week. Top 5 winners receive 10 piggies! For this we require 1 to 3 images, at least 768px in width or height, please.

Of course, there’s also the **Film Class**, LHOTD, Oktokino, Missions, Lomo Addicts, and so on!

Oink!

    Photo Stories: Away With You by lomomowlem

    It is clear from the wild variety of photos in the website that Lomographers will do just about anything to get a good shot. Some swap rolls with friends overseas while others concoct unheard-of film soups. And then there are the masters of operations, the ones who spy and crouch their way to a share-worthy picture. This is one such story.

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.

    A Collection Of Awesome Konstruktor Snapshots

    There's nothing more satisfying than taking fantastic photos with a camera that you built yourself. If you've always wanted to impress your friends with your mad DIY skills, pick up a Konstruktor Camera Kit and show them what you've got! It's also a cool way to get them into Lomography, because as you build the camera you'll discover how analogue photography works. Oh, and the Konstruktor takes gorgeous photos, too - check out the gallery and see what we mean!
