The London City Guide Needs A Cover Shot!


Our editor and designer have been hidden away in a dark cave in the Outer Hebrides for the last three months, piecing together all of your submissions for the best guide to London, ever. However, they’ve crawled back to London to tell us there is one vital piece of the jigsaw missing – the cover shot!

Greg the editor – he is VERY excited to see daylight again

Let’s face it, we all judge a book by it’s cover, so the Lomography London City Guide has to have a cover that somehow, in a single shot, conveys the almost nuclear level of awesome contained within it’s pages.

This is a guide to London, written by Lomographers, so we need you guys to give us that most important shot- the one that will make people want to grab the book, crack it open, and be drawn into our wonderful creative world (even boring people in book shops who might not have even heard of Lomography. Gasp!)

What we are looking for..

- the brightest, boldest, most striking image you’ve got
- if it features a nice clear face, or a group of people having fun/looking crazy that’s brilliant!
- we are also fans of animals, so a great clear shot of an animal’s face could be good
- Ultimately, it could be anything, so long as it’s bold, clear, and SMACKS of Lomography!
oh, and it must have been shot in LONDON!!!!

Here are the other Lomography City Guides, for inspiration

The Prize

The winning image will go on the cover of the London City Guide, you’ll get a free copy, and you’ll be able to see the book in shops all over the world.

The editor and designer will crank up their rusty old cave computer this weekend to have a look through all your submissions. Don’t let them down, you don’t want to get them angry…..
