Are you a hardcore New York Lomographer with experience as an editor and writer, who knows the ins-and-out of the Big Apple and has dreamt about doing something with all that knowledge? If you answered with a yes, yes, yes and yes - then you may have what it takes to become the editor of the Lomography City Guide New York, our official guide to New York and how it should be seen.
Inspired by the pages of the original Lomography City Guide Vienna, New York’s version will be a 250 page city guide packed with New York’s finest tips and Lomographs. As the editor, you’ll be responsible for the complete content of the city guide which includes setting the locations (LomoLocations), gathering photos and tips, directing the call for online submissions from the worldwide Lomography community, contributing your own tips and photos and working closely with the project graphic designer.
This is an amazing opportunity to be part of an exciting project from start to finish and work directly with the Lomography team on making the Lomographers’ bible to New York City reality!!

There’s something about New York that attracts people, something that makes both visitors from the most bucolic places and tourists from the most cosmopolitan of cities fall in love.
