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!

    London based photographer Cat Stevens uses the softer, more subtle aesthetics of film photography throughout her work. Her shoots consist of the familiar light leaks and washed out tones that most film shooters will be familiar with. She has photographed artists such as Deerhunter, PJ Harvey and recently took a series of sun drenched beach shots which adorned The Charlatans' last album cover titled "Modern Nature."
