Deadline August 20 | Win a Stylish Career: The Search for Blackberry - Elle Style Reporter 2012 (R10,000 monthly stipend | South Africa)

Deadline: 20 August 2012

ELLE, in association with BlackBerry®, is looking for a Style Reporter to join their fabulously fashionable team!

Yes, the search is officially on for South Africa’s own Sartorialist or Face Hunter. We are looking for a style scout with that perfectly tuned instinct and unerring eye for what’s new and noteworthy as well as the fashion knowledge and credibility to take his or her place in the front row.

WHAT’S THE BIG IDEA?

The ELLE Style Reporter, in association with BlackBerry®, will enter a seven-month contract to report on trends and events. Between December 2012 and June 2013, the winner will receive regular exposure in ELLE as well as on the ELLE and BlackBerry® digital and social media platforms, receive a stipend of R10 000 per month and be equipped with all the resources to carry out the Style Reporter role, including a BlackBerry® BoldTM 9790 smartphone – plus the opportunity to have an international experience and meet a top international fashion blogger.

HOW TO ENTER?

You will have to submit a blog post either on your existing blog or on one that you created for the competition to demonstrate your creative ability and fashion flair. Your post must be inspired by the ELLE edits section on page 17 of our July issue – it’s on shelf today – where leading South African style bloggers unpack trends.

SUBMIT THE COMPLETED ENTRY FORM TOGETHER WITH THE FOLLOWING:

  • the URL for your blog post that demonstrates your creativity and eye for style. Choose any trend featured in the ELLE Edits section of ELLE July 2012 and interpret it in your own way, illustrating it with pictures you have taken yourself.
  • a brief motivation (150 words) telling us why you should be our first ELLE Style Reporter in association with BlackBerry®.
