The City Guide New York City Gets Down to Specifics


Time is running out to submit your locations and be part of the City Guide New York City!

With New York section call outs being a huge success; an amazing 100+ locations were submitted in just a few weeks, it’s time to think about our very best and beloved NYC spots.

To help with the brainstorming, Lawrence, our trusty NYC editor has come up with an ocean full of Lomography minded locations that could be included. In no way are they musts but we generally wanted to get the creative juices and locations flowing.

REMEMBER…images locations are great but having you and friends, pets or family in each is our driving force. So laugh in the park, smile with your huge pizza slice and give toast to your favorite bars in beautiful lomographic glory!

How to get involved:
- To see all the sections that will be included in the Lomography City Guide New York, take a look here
- If you’re not sure of what a location should look, our handy dandy step-by- step guidelines will help walk you through it with ease.
- Upload 3 or 4 or more great photos (higher resolution the better – your photos should have at least 1200 pixels in either width or height)
- A few sentences on why you love your location and why people should check it out
- Tell us the exact address where it’s located and how to get there
- If you have a LomoLocation to submit that does not fit in the above, please go ahead and submit it anyway, it will still be considered for the book (so long as it’s about New York of course!)
- Just don’t forget to tag your location with “NYCG” so we can pull them out easily and provide you with 15 piggies (10 for the Location and 5 if it’s from New York)

Good Luck!
