ELLE are in the business of making fashion dreams come true AND making us drool all over their pages for the fabulous fashion they feature every issue!
ELLE magazine and BlackBerry® are once again joining forces to create a remarkable opportunity for young fashionistas and street style spotters to launch an online career in the world of fashion.
I watched current ELLE Style Reporter Trevor Stuurman’s journey from beginning to end and I can only imagine the doors that have opened for him as well as the knowledge he has gained learning from the ELLE Belle’s. It is sad to see Trevor go because he has done such a good job keeping us up to date on trends with awesome visuals but it is an exciting time for all those who enter.
The ELLE and BlackBerry 2013 Style Reporter is a nation-wide competition, created to discover a young and aspiring style reporter that can capture fashion on the move, be it at a red-carpet event or a Saturday market, and can blog and Tweet about it in an engaging, intelligent way.
Apart from receiving a 12-month contract with ELLE and the opportunity to report for elle.co.za, the winner will also receive a monthly stipend of R5 000, a Fujifilm XF-1 camera and a BlackBerry® Q5 and BlackBerry® Z10 smartphone. In addition, a photography or desktop publishing course from Vega and the opportunity to be mentored by well-known photographer and head judge, Ed Suter, is also up for grabs. With the title comes the opportunity for regular exposure in ELLE as well as on the social media platforms of ELLE and BlackBerry and the chance to attend an international fashion week in 2013.
More information on the competition and entry details are in the August issue of ELLE that will be on sale from 15 July 2013.
This is such an opportunity for a fashion loving trend spotter and I urge anyone with the passion to enter.
