Are you your squad’s resident selfie taker? Do your brunch photos crush on Instagram? Do you find your subway serenity by scrolling through all the amazing shots that you’ve taken of New York? Well listen up, then! We’re on the hunt for some gorgeous words and pictures about your favorite neighborhood haunts. We want your beautiful photos and lyrical descriptions of the local places you love—restaurants, bars, stores, parks, museums—anywhere in NYC that you think is special and want to share.
To take part in the competition, you’ll need to write a review and submit it (with a photo attached) to our site. You can submit as many as you like, and you can find some useful tips on how to write a Time Out review here.
We’ll feature the best of the best online (and in print!), so you may actually be able to say you’re famous on the internet and really mean it. We’ll also pick one overall winner, who’ll receive a $200 restaurant voucher at one of Time Out New York’s favorite restaurants. (Start figuring out who you want to invite—or hoard all that food and drink for yourself, we won’t judge.)
The deadline for entries is September 1, 2016. Winners will be chosen by our editorial team, so get snapping (and writing) and try to impress the pants off us. (And please remember to have a read of our terms and conditions.) Good luck—may the best Annie Leibowitz in training win!
