We are excited to announce the launch of our London City Guide. Following in the footsteps of the Vienna guide, the best city in the world* is now getting it’s own book. And it’s going to be written by YOU! (* FACT)
We Need YOU
This aint no ordinary guide book. It’s not about tourist attractions, hotel reviews or anything like that. We want to show London from a fresh perspective and capture the true spirit of the city. This is where you come in. The book is going to be written by YOU. No one knows the city better than the Lomographers who have explored it. So we want to know where you like to go to take photos, hang out, eat bacon sarnies, drink tea, chug beer, laugh, kiss, cry. All those secret locations that you’ve been keeping to yourself. Now’s the time to share them with the world!
How To Contribute
This is a call to arms. Get out there and get creative. Reflect on old haunts, or go out and find new ones. We need our team of Lomographic Journalists in the field giving us the best and most up to date content we can get.
Most of you will be familiar with LomoLocations, where you can upload photos and a few lines about your favourite places in the world. Well, now the spotlight is on London! Over the next few months we need as many LomoLocations as possible. And you don’t have to be a budding Shakespeare, the more personal, funny, witty or ‘out there’ the entries the better. We want this book to be filled with a thousand different voices. Here’s what you can do:
- Log on to Lomography.com and go to the LomoLocation submissions page
- 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
- Tag your entry with “LCG” (London City Guide) so we can find them.
Of course it wouldn’t be a Lomography guide without photos! We want to fill this guide to bursting with shots of the city. Look back over old photos, or go out and shoot afresh. We will be running Photo Rumbles over the next few months so you can send us your snaps. But remember, your chances of getting published in the guide are much higher when submitting LomoLocations – so don’t be lazy and add a few lines of text for international fame and glory.
So… What’s In It For You?
Are you joking? This is your chance to be published in the greatest city guide the world has ever seen! As well as a credit, everyone who makes it into the book will receive a free copy, so you can show your friends and family that you are now a published writer. In addition each LomoLocation that gets published online gets you five piggy points to spend at our store. To help inspire you, we will be announcing a new theme every week, and those who submit will have the chance to win lots of great Lomography goodies.
The Deadline for Entries is April 7th
Only 6 weeks to go! So, what you are waiting for? Go out and start snapping, papping, and tapping at those keyboards. For Queen, For Lomography, For London!
