The Awards are Back!


Is your trophy room feeling a bit bare and cold? It’s time to change that as we bring back the badges!

Photo by: dgpower

One of the most requested features of the old site from our loyal followers was the winner badges. We don’t blame you! Getting one of Lomography’s numerous awards such as Lomohome of the Day, Lomomission and Rumble Winners among others are a point of pride and rightfully deserves to be shown off! So we’re slowly bringing back all of your old awards including rumbles and so far, all awards from the beginning of old Lomography website to May 2009 have been migrated! Please wait for a few days for the cache to clear all these awards before following us up.

Curious as to where you stand? Just type this into your browser (replace with your own username) and you’ll see the accolades that you currently have. Give us a few days to complete the process though, before reporting any missing awards from your collection. The LomoStaff elves may be cross-eyed with the thousands of awards so your help will greatly be appreciated!

Give us until 26 February 2010 for the awards May 2009 below to appear in your account.

Please leave a message in Fookshit's Lomohome. Please make sure those missing awards are from May ’09 and below though! So for now, sit back, relax, and enjoy your shiny new trophies!

    Trusty Bags for Trusty Cameras

    We spend copious amounts of time stalking camera forums and researching specifications that "hunter" seems a more fitting term than "collector." And yet, when the time comes to pack all this game—the new or thrillingly ancient cameras—we DIY padding on the spot. (Guilty of trying to avoid the unappealing gear bag from the department store.) Last year though we stocked up on camera bags that are as cool as they are protective. Here are some of them.
