Lomography’s Free Piggy Pay-Out creates Global shockwave!It’s all crash and crisis in the world of finance but the Bank of Lomography has shocked the world with a show of confidence in the Pigonomy.

All Lomographers who have been active on Lomography.com in the last 12 months will receive a one-off pay-out of 5 piggy points. These piggies are worth €1 or $1 US on shop.lomography.com based on today’s exchange rate. Piggy points can be used to get a discount off purchases on shop.lomography.com. Lomographers MUST have a registered Lomohome to receive this piggy windfall. These free piggies expire on 1st December 2008 so Lomographers are urged to re-invest them on shop.lomography.com quickly!

The head of The Bank of Lomography had this to say: “We’ve decided to inject some Piggies into the accounts of our Lomographers for the following reasons”:

1)Lomographer loyalty – we want to give these piggies to our Lomographers as a thank you for investing so much of their time and effort into making Lomography.com the creative place it is.

2)It’s a chance for first-time Lomohome owners to get on the piggy ladder.

3)This free injection of piggies into the accounts of Lomographers will make it easier for them to afford the Lomographic object of their affection. You have to speculate to accumulate in the world of piggy high finance!

4)Lomography’s stock is at an all-time high. There are now more Lomographic products and goodies in stock than ever before!

5)To celebrate the growth of beta.lomography.com – more features are being added all the time.

Turnover to Beta.lomography.com

Maybe you have not moved over to beta.lomography yet? Even if you have not – your 5 free piggies will be safe ‘n’ sound in your exisiting Lomohome. Make the turnover to Beta and start using all the great new features we are always adding.

A single Lomohome can grow a piggy empire!

To receive and benefit from the Lomography Piggy Pay-Out you need only to have a registered Lomohome on Lomography.com. If you sign up and create a Lomohome in the next 2 weeks you will also get 5 free piggies! Once you have a Lomohome you can exploit all the ways to collect piggy points on Lomography.com

    ha ha, like all governements in the US & Europe, massive state investment to (try to) stop the crisis! :))) Hope there's is no such crisis in Piggyland and in the Lomoconomy!! :) But these piggies are going directly to us and not to the bank & insurance companies...! :)))
    Thanks LSI! :)

    Thank you very much!

    But my piggies' expiry date didn't get update itself, like extended for another 90 days?
    How about after I got my LomoLocations' piggypoint?
    Is that it will just stick to the current remaining days?

    Please correct me if I'm wrong :)

    THANK YOU KINDLY, LSI =)

    Too bad i was 5 minutes too early with my Ringflash snatch! purchase... But I'm sure I'll get around to order more stuff before they expire...

    However, Reinertlee raised a question I've been meaning to ask for a long time, what happens if you have several piggies with different expiration date stuffed in your bank?
    Let's say these 5 piggies expire on Dec 1st, but by the end of November I get an injection of 10 lomolocation piggies that are due to expire just before New Year. Does these 5 free piggies extend to the latter expiration date or do you still withdraw 5 of them on Dec 1st?

    Once again, thanks for the freebie and cheers from Sweden!

    @ reinertlee

    All piggies earned in the magazine (locations, films, rumbles, etc) are valid for 30 days. Piggies earned someplace else are still 90 days (lomo home of the day). For the piggy giveaway a date was set in the email that was sent out. We also extend the date only if your current date is less than what you would of earned with your current award. So if you have 40 days left and get an award worth 30 days, this means that your date does not change. If you have 10 days left and then get some piggies your deadline will extend to 30 days. Hope this helps :)

    Photographs with sprocket holes exposed are practically a dime a dozen these days but, of course, this wasn't the case more than 50 years ago. However, former freelance photographer Michael Ciavolino was already able to create one of the earliest examples of this technique back in the early '60s in his groundbreaking photograph called "Boat Ride, Rye Beach."
