Hello everybody and welcome to Coach’s Corner, the place where we’ll tell you about the challenge set each day in the grueling, arduous, exciting and exhilarating Analogue Marathon. As you might already know, each day this week, we’ll set you a task in your LomoHome – Complete the task and you’ll automatically receive 5 Piggy Points as reward. Leap over the jump to read about today’s upload challenge!
Day One: Upload Hike – Upload 50 Photos
This challenge runs between 12pm CET July 30th until 12pm CET July 31st
For this challenge, you must upload 50 photos or more to complete the challenge and get your 5 Piggies. We know we haven’t made it easy for you folks for the first Analogue Marathon challenge. But we also know you’re a community of hard-working snap-shooters so are confident you’ll complete Upload Hike and still have enough in you for the next task. Also remember that we will have individual achievement awards for each days challenge for the people who go furthest beyond the goals set – So if you have a whole pile of analogue snaps sitting by the computer, now is the time to upload them. If you aren’t able to make this challenge, have no fear, we’ll be back with another task for you to try! This challenge ends July 31st at 12pm CET.
*Just make sure the photos you upload are public – You can do this by ticking the box next to ‘Everyone can see the photos you upload’ in the upload section of the Lab!
