Do you fancy yourself a super sleuth with keen detective skills? Then we at Lomography have a surprise in store for you! All you have to do is to figure out our riddle before Friday 5th October!
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, involves the recovery of a top secret riddle. You will need to work together as a team, and pay a visit to Lomography’s Gallery stores. Each store is in possession of single, solitary code word. Your team will need to extract the word from each store from all over the globe, arrange the words in alphabetical order by gallery store cities (so our Amsterdam store would have the first word, then Antwerp, then Austin etc.) and assemble them into the final riddle. The team can use this post, and comment on which words are found in which cities. There are 31 words to the riddle in total (there is only 1 code word to be found in cities with 2 stores). Once you are in possession of the full riddle, you must post all 31 words in the correct order here and a coupon code will be released. You have until October 5th to complete the mission. Remember, if you get caught, we at Lomography will disavow all knowledge of your actions. This message will self-destruct in five seconds. Good luck!
Whilst this is a team game, we know that no-one works for free. So, we are also offering a 5 Piggy Point reward for the 1st person from each city to post their word from the riddle. The piggies will be handed out at the end of the mission.
How to get the Code
In order to unlock the code word at each gallery store, you must simply go up to a member of staff and take part in this mini dialogue below. Once you have spoken these words, our undercover Gallery Store staff will tell you the word! Once you have the codeword from your nearest store, post it here along with the store city so that the team can build-up the complete riddle.
Lomographer – It’s a beautiful day in Casablanca.
Gallery Store- Yes, but my canary flew away.
Lomographer- Have you tried calling the police?
Gallery Store- Yes, they said they will make a coffee and call me right back.
A Helpful Hint
Are you looking for a Lomographer in a certain city to help on this mission? Perhaps you need a stealthy damsel who lives in Paris? Or an intrepid Lomographer who works his way through the streets of London. The All page in the Homes section allows you to search Lomographers by the city in which they live; use this tool to find Lomographers in each Gallery Store city and then send them a message asking for their help on this top secret assignment. You’ll need to work together to solve the riddle in its entirety!
