The Blogacious Challenge

Write a user blog entry today and we’ll give you 5 Piggy Points!

At Lomography we don’t just love analogue photography, we love writing about it too!! So we want you to share some thoughts with the Lomography community by writing a Blog Post today. The Post can be about pretty much anything – Your favorite camera, a dream you had last night, an interesting article you read recently, what you want for dinner tonight….Just write what you feel like reading! And don’t forget to attach a few of your favorite photos to your post to make sure it catches the Lomographic eye! Once you’ve published your post, 5 Piggy Points will automatically be awarded to you.

THIS CHALLENGE ENDS THURSDAY 24th MARCH AT 23:59 UTC/GMT

Check Your Progress

You can check your progress on each of this week’s Piggy Challenges by taking a look at the Million Piggies Tracker which is displayed in your LomoHome – The tracker tells you what percentage of the Challenge you’ve completed, so you know exactly what you’ve got to do to earn those prized Piggies!

How to Create a Blog Entry

Never written a Lomography Blog entry before? No worries, you’ve chosen the perfect day to start! Here’s a little step-by-step guide on how to do it:

  • Head to the Blog section of your LomoHome*
  • Click the ‘Create new Blog Entry’ Button
  • Write your Blog – Give it a title, write a little summary text about your entry and then write the main text in the ‘Body’ text box.
  • You can also add photos to your blog post – You do it by using this code [Photo:xxxxxxxxx] and replacing the xxxxxxxxx with whatever number is at the end of the url of your photo, after the slash (/).
  • Then choose the time and date you want your entry published and click the ‘Create’ button – Just remember to publish the Blog today if you want your Piggies!
  • And Voila! You’ve got yourself a Blog Post!

    "Head to the Million Piggies Microsite to see how many Piggies have been given away so far!"... but the microsite just says that the piggies for stage 1 & 2 were given, but not "how many"....

    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.

    Show Us Your Perfect Timing Winners Announcement!

    There is nothing better than a photo shot at the perfect moment. Henri Cartier-Bresson's principle on "The Decisive Moment" is a principle that we should still follow to this day. A perfectly-timed photo creates impact, whether it's one of a friend jumping into the pool or a couple emerging from the ceremony on their wedding day. For this rumble, we want to see that breathtaking moment, shot at the perfect time. And you showed us what it's like to be on time.
