In the mood for love? Want to join our Baby for a Car Competition but don't have a loved one? We want to send a lucky Lomographer or two on their dream date - Read on for details on how to participate!

Credits: bxlomo

To celebrate the birth of our Limited Edition Russia Day Lomo LC-A+, we’ve got a lovely love-themed competition for you! We’ve got a budget of 250 Euros and we want to know how you’d spend the money on a dream date with that lucky boy or girl you have been dying to ask out – Write a Blog Post giving a detailed breakdown of what you’d like to do on your date and how you would spend the cash – Then post the link to your post on this page – The date idea that we like the most will win the money for real!

And if you still don’t have someone to go on the date with, let us know in the comments too! Maybe another Lomographer in your city would like to join you!

To give you more of an idea, here is an example of what info we’d like to see in your Blog Post:

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Lomography,

I would really like to win this dream date competition you are running so that I can surprise my girlfriend for our 1 year anniversary – Here is how I would spend the 250 euro budget:

  • Dinner at an Italian Restaurant – 50 Euros
  • Trip to the cinema – 20 Euros
  • Romantic Boat Ride on the River – 30 Euros
  • Trip to the theme park – 20 Euros
  • Late night bottle of champagne and food at the hotel – 30 Euros
  • Hotel Room for the night – 100 Euros

TOTAL: 250 Euros

Kind regards,

Lomo Love

P.S We’re sure you can come up with something more romantic and creative than this! So get writing!
