Are you always first in line at the latest restaurant openings? Is your Instagram feed one big FOMO-inducing party? Was your last quiet night some time back in 2008? You could be just the person we’re looking for.

Time Out is looking for a team of Tastemakers–a crack squad of city-scouring explorers who’ll uncover the latest, greatest, most fun things going on around Los Angeles, then write reviews about them on Time Out Los Angeles.

As a Time Out Tastemaker, you’ll influence how millions of Angelenos spend their spare time, and—as a good review from Time Out can often mean a line down the street—you’ll also make sure the great venues in your area get the love they deserve.

Tastemakers will also be at the top of the guestlist at many of our events and get exclusive access to movie screenings, exhibition openings and more. It’s basically like having the keys to the city, without having to become the mayor or anything.

Now for the important stuff. You won’t be working for Time Out or getting paid to write reviews. Your reviews will show up on the user reviews tab with a shiny tastemaker badge beside them, rather than a critic one. BUT, you will sleep well knowing you’re helping inspire thousands of people each day to choose great places to eat, drink and have fun. Oh, and did we mention those awesome free events you get to come to?

Use the form below to tell us why you’d be a great Time Out Tastemaker—we’ll be in touch in April if we’re interested in getting to know you a little better. Confused? Read these FAQs.
