There will be three winners each getting £1000 from FlipNpik to spend at their nominated location whose picture with most likes on their Instagram posts. In addition, there will be 20 weekly spot prizes, announced over social media.
The competition's mission is to increase awareness around local and responsible consumption while revealing London's most "charming" neighbourhood businesses…
FlipNpik's CEO Henri Harland said: "We are looking for London-based bloggers and journalists to get involved and help spread the word via our #SOSLondon competition, to contribute to the improvement of the local economy.
"We may expand the competition to other locations at a later date, but initially we are looking for Londoners to share locations that are special to them and maybe aren't so well-known.
"It could be a local restaurant, business or venue and the exposure on our Facebook page will hopefully encourage others to visit.
"By downloading the FlipNpik app, we hope we will reveal some fascinating new finds for Londoners that might be right beneath their nose."
