Lomography has conquered the world. For the past few years people swapped their massive professional digital cameras to toy-looking, colorful lomos. Why? It's all about your attitude manifesto towards the world.

Lomos are primitive. You may say it's not an asset? Well look at it from this perspective: you can take it to a gig, a festival or any other copyright-protected event. When security guards see your pinky plastic camera they're like 'yeah right. You're not gonna take good pictures with that'. But actually, if you're lucky enough, your pictures can be better than those taken by pros. What's more, you won't get pissed if you lose, flood or break your lomo. It's not as valuable as a professional camera.

You can take your lomo everywhere. Most of them are pocket-size, so that you can picture everything everywhere you go. Lomography is not an interference in your life, but part of it. Just picture your life and stop thinking about proper framing, aperture and sharpness. Trust me, you don't need to know beforehand what you captured on your film. There's that great feeling of being unsure what's there when you first browse it.

Say 'no' to the digital mainstream world, throw away your shitty digital camera, buy a lomo! Or even better – get it for the price of nothing. We're giving away a 360 spinner lomo, the best panoramic camera you've ever used. All you have to do is to take it in one hand, pull the cord with the other and release it. How simple is that? You can take up to eight panoramas on one film of standard size. Your creativity is the only limit.

If you want the the spinner, just answer the following question: What nationality are the inventors of lomography?
