It’s time to get your smooch on.

The Downtown Victoria Business Association is searching for the best kissers in the city.

It’s looking for lip-locking submissions for its annual Kiss in the City contest.

The popular Valentine’s Day contest encourages Victorians to photograph themselves, lips in smooch mode, somewhere in downtown Victoria.

Photos and video are posted on the DVBA Facebook page to be evaluated by a panel of judges.

Top prize for the winning kiss is a romantic night at the Fairmont Empress, dinner for two at the Bengal Lounge and a 60-minute spa treatment for two.

The package also includes a gold and pearl locket donated by Violette Boutique, flowers from Poppies Floral Art, movie tickets to the Cineplex Odeon topped off with goodies from Roger’s Chocolates.

Two runners up will also receive dinner in downtown Victoria, chocolates and movie passes.

To enter, upload your photo or short video (must be taken in 2012) to the DVBA Facebook page. Submissions will be accepted until midnight Feb. 12 and winners will be announced on Valentine’s Day morning.
