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!

Coach’s Corner – How to Upload a Photo

If you are new to the Lomography community, you might be looking for a few tips on how to upload your first snaps. Well, you’ve come to just the right place! Read this step-by-step guide on how to do it:

  • Head to the Lomography Lab and click on the Upload tab
  • In the Upload section, click on the browse and upload button
  • Select the photo(s) you want to upload – please only upload JPGs. One side of the image – be it width or height – should be at least 576px (the bigger the better). The file size itself should not exceed 5 MB. You can select multiple images to upload more at once.
  • You can add and edit information about your newly uploaded photo(s) in the Photos section of the Lab – Here you can share information about what camera and film you took the pic with, where it was taken and even when it was taken!

Play for your Country

In addition to the individual prizes on offer for participating in the Analogue Marathon, we also have a daily country bonus offer for the country with the highest ratio of users who complete the challenge. You’ll find information on each day’s winning country in our daily Analogue Marathon update articles.
