Our good friends at MTV FORA, MTV Canada’s blog about fashion, beauty and lifestyle, are feeling extra excited for Valentine's Day, and so are we! Valentine’s Day isn’t just about being sappy with your loved ones – There are also those funny Valentine moments that really make the memories. That’s why we decided to make the theme for this rumble all about the awkward couples!

Perhaps it was just a bad angle, or you really just are that awkward, it doesn’t matter when you’re in love! I’m sure we all have that one, or multiple photos, maybe of yourself and your significant other, maybe of your friends and their partners. Regardless of who it is, we want to see it! Show us your funny Valentines by uploading your photo from your Lomohome here, or through MTV FORA’s email and you could win some neat prizes with Lomography Canada and MTV FORA.

We’re fizzing with excitement to introduce our latest Kickstarter project: the Lomo’Instant Square. We’re talking about the world’s first analogue camera to produce square-format Instax pictures. It features a 95mm glass lens for super sharp photos, an advanced automatic mode that takes care of exposure, all of Lomography’s signature creative features — and a compact, foldable design. The Lomo’Instant Square has launched on Kickstarter. Come join the fun and back us on Kickstarter now to save up to 35% on the planned retail price, and scoop all sorts of extra treats. Be sure to snatch up the deals before they run out. Be there and be square!
