It’s big news from ELLE and BlackBerry® (and perhaps bigger news for you) who have joined forces for the second year to find the next Style Reporter to join the ELLE team. Now its not just because I’m a judge that I will tell you that this search is the ONLY one of its kind in SA and that you ABSOLUTELY MUST enter if this makes your heart sing.
Here’s what you need to know:
The ELLE Style Reporter in association with BlackBerry® 2013 search has kicked off here.
You have until 18 September to create your own blog, create your first post communicating streetstyle – you need to shoot and convey fashion on the move.
Let’s be honest – who wouldn’t want to enter? The 2013 winner gets a 12-month contract with ELLE and the opportunity to report for elle.co.za
There’s a monthly stipend and a BlackBerry® Q5 and Z10 smartphone thrown in along with a photography or desktop publishing course from Vega and be mentored by photographer Ed Suter.
But what excites me is that the title comes with the opportunity to join the ELLE team, to absorb all there is to know about the world of online and magazines, to learn from Jackie Burger herself and to be a part of the ELLE engine room. And then there is the trip – the winner will attend an International Fashion Week in 2014. Enough. Said.
Meet the other judges here, and do turn to page 28 of the August issue of ELLE for dates to diarise.
I won’t wish you luck – you don’t need luck for this one, you need a strong photographic eye, your own ideas and opinions and a love of style.
