Win the Ultimate New York Life!

Think you've got what it takes to be Time Out New York's next great blogger? Enter now.


Time Out New York is holding a nationwide search for NYC’s next great blogger. We're looking for someone whip smart and funny who can comment on everything happening around them in their current city and NYC to come spend six months with us. 

As if working with us wasn't enough of an incentive, we'll also put you up in a rad apartment in a great neighborhood, within spitting distance of the best bars/restaurants etc NYC has to offer. We'll also take care of rent and all those pesky utilities, compensate you with a monthly stipend and make sure you're on the list for the best events happening in town while you're with us. (Did we mention we’re paying the rent?! In New York City!)

The lucky winner will stay in a one-bedroom apartment at The Ritz Plaza (235 W 48th St) with access to the member’s lounge, outdoor patio, fitness center, pool and rooftop sun deck, so needless to say, you'll be living large in New York.

To enter to win submit a sample lifestyle blog about the city you currently reside in. Remember to keep it light and funny. It might be a list of observations only people in your city will understand (and laugh uncontrollably at). Or a photo essay. Or a newsy piece about a just-opened tofu butcher (don’t laugh—they exist).

Stumped on where to start? Here are some examples of great posts:
