Russia Day 2012 - Show Us Some Love – Winner Announcement


A few days ago it was 12th June and the end of our massive competition in search of a Lomography Russia Day baby. Unfortunately it looks like no-one has won our grand prize of a Russia family van but we’ve still got 3 scooters to give away! Read on to find out if your competition entry has earned you a trip down the road to love…

Before we salute our 3 winners, we’d like to thank everyone who took part in our Russia Day 2012 competition and congratulate you all on the fantastic love-themed shots which were submitted. We had a great time searching through the entries for the top shots. Unfortunately it looks like there will be no grand prize-winning couple who have had a Russia Day baby born on June12th. But we are still super-excited to be giving away 3 scooter prizes for the best love-themed shots.

So it’s without further a-do that we congratulate our 3 winners matadorenwayne, disdis and tome-vardasca for these shots – We’ll be in touch about getting the prizes to you soon!
