What the hell is a CitySlicker?

A CitySlicker is anyone (a newbie film photographer, a hardcore Lomographer, a student, or even a professional) hand-picked by Lomography who regularly writes interesting lifestyle pieces about their city. Each month, Lomography will set a writing task for all the CitySlickers! For example:

‘Cover a local exhibit/gig in your town and share it to the community’
‘Fill us in on life at your university’
‘Try out the brand new XXX camera and write about your experience’

… or anything that’s analogue, creative, and inspiring under the sun!

You will earn special Piggy Points for every article published. You will also have the chance to try out a range of Lomography products! Above all, we will support you in publishing and publicizing your writing.
