A Guide to Piggies

Piggies, piggies, piggies! We just can’t get enough of them … and there are so many ways to win them!

Piggies, piggies, piggies! We just can’t get enough of them … and there are so many ways to win them!

But of course, there are certain guidelines and requirements to be followed so that you can attract these piggies all the way to you. Consider this as a friendly reminder ;) Read on!

Lomolocations – Please include at least FIVE images (at least 768px in width or height) along with your Location story. We’ve been receiving lots of entries containing only one image and one descriptive sentence, and we hate to see it go to waste. Tell us your experiences, shops to go to, and other interesting tidbits in the entry, and related links too. (10 piggies)

Camera Club – We will be dishing out 20 piggies for FULL REVIEWS AND GALLERY. When we say ‘reviews’ we mean your original reviews – what you like about the camera, what you don’t like about it, interesting features, tech specs, etc. (see previous camera reviews at the blog). Please include at least FIVE images
(at least 768px in width or height, but of course the bigger the better)! You can also upload nice shots for existing reviews, but these don’t get piggies – just lots of love and fame ;)

Round-the-Clock challenges – These 24-hour challenges occur 2x a week. Top 5 winners receive 10 piggies! For this we require 1 to 3 images, at least 768px in width or height, please.

Of course, there’s also the **Film Class**, LHOTD, Oktokino, Missions, Lomo Addicts, and so on!

Oink!

    Cinematographer Michal Dabal on the Petzval Lens

    Here’s what happens before we interview a photographer. We gush about the work though we have yet to find out the cameras and processes behind the brilliant composition or the light architecture. And even when they haven’t used a Lomo camera, we feature them anyway. But every once in a while comes a pro who uses one of our premium lenses at work and our fun cameras off-duty. This makes us mighty glad, more so when their images are good and worth sharing. We count cinematographer Michal Dabal's work among them.
