Apply to become a Spotter

We aim to show visitors (and locals!) the real culture of a city beyond the tourist highlights. We are always looking for locals who’d like to share their passion for their city by blogging about their favorite spots. Browse around our current 80+ city blogs and learn more about our amazing community & vision!

What do we require from you?

When you start as a Spotter we ask you to write about your favorite 20 spots in your city, and keep your articles up-to-date.

It’s our job to make it fun and easy to be a Spotter. You don’t need to be fluent in English – we have an editor who will check all your articles and help you. We created a simple website where you write and manage your articles, and we take care of the publishing (on this blog and in our app) and promotion of your articles.

What’s in it for you?

Consider this a volunteer opportunity. You will be entitled to a share of the income of the your blog & app, but we think it’s important that you are motivated by other factors.

First of all, you’ll make our users – people who are genuinely interested in your culture – very happy with your tips. You’ll help reduce overtourism, and support local entrepreneurs by writing about them. Also, you’ll join an awesome community of Spotters! Read more about us and our mission here.

You’ll get free access to all cities in our app. And finally, of course you’re free to promote your website and/or social media accounts on your profile page.
