What the hell is a CitySlicker?

A CitySlicker is a person hand picked by Lomography who regularly writes interesting lifestyle pieces about life in their town. Each month Lomography will set a writing task for all the CitySlickers, for instance….

‘Review a clubnight in your town or city’
‘Try out the brand new XXX camera and write about your experience’
‘Fill us in on life at your uni’

…….or something similar! Here are some UK CitySlicker articles that have already been published…

UK CitySlicker Marianne: Say Hello to Nottingham!
UK CitySlicker Claire: We Are Leeds!
UK CitySlicker Sam: Hello and an Introduction to Oxford
UK CitySlicker Georgia: Norwich - Finer Than Fine!
UK CitySlicker Marianne: Gamecity6 Festival
UK CitySlicker Sian: Oh Hey, Exeter!
UK CitySlicker Jessica: A View of London
UK CitySlicker Matthew: Welcome to Oxford
UK CitySlicker Sam: Christmas Parties at Trinity
UK CitySlicker Georgia: A Dark and Subtle Christmas in Norwich
UK CitySlicker Claire: Beer-Fueled Christmas Party Carnage

As well as setting your monthly tasks Lomography will give you support in publishing and publicising your writing. We also often get invited to festivals and events around the country that we can’t go to, so we will be happy to pass these on to you from time to time so you can go and shoot them and review them as your monthly task. Alternatively if there is an event you particularly want to cover we can use our evil powers to try and get you a press pass! (This has already worked for two of our City Slickers, lucky devils!)

How to apply

Please send an email outlining why you think you’d make a great CitySlicker to lomographyuk@lomography.com. Don’t forget to include which city you live in!

Please note that at this time this opportunity is only open to people who live in the UK. This is a voluntary, unpaid opportunity. We are looking for around ten CitySlickers around the UK. You do not need to be an experienced, published writer, but experience will help us to choose you, so please include any relevant links in your application.

    Do you have to be a student? I would be interested in being the Cardiff CitySlicker if being a graduate doesn't exclude me!

    Watch: 'One Day In A Lomo'Instant' Video

    A lot happens in a day, made up of those little moments that we usually take for granted. So we asked some of our friends from the Lomography team to capture some instant photos throughout one day, using the Lomo'Instant Camera. The result? A collection of memories that they could catch, hold, and cherish forever. We compiled their instant moments into a cool video, which you can check out after the cut!

    Analog By Nature

    It's late October in Copenhagen and summer was well and truly behind us. With the nights drawing in, the chances of going out with one of my cameras was slim. All was not lost at this time of year, however, as it allowed me time to focus on my own personal music projects—I am a professional composer/musician and audio engineer at my own studio by day.
