Refinery29 Announces Its 2nd Annual Search for The Next Big Style Blogger
NEW YORK, Jan. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Last year, thousands entered. And thousands more voted, tweeted, and watched as five amazing finalists squared off against one another in a series of nail-biting blogging, styling, and reporting challenges until Refinery29's Search for The Next Big Style Blogger reached its thrilling conclusion. Now, Refinery29's most popular original contest is back—and better than ever.
Refinery29, the award-winning online destination for all things fashion, shopping, and personal style, is calling for its millions of users to raise the stakes in the style blogging community by entering the Second Annual Search for The Next Big Style Blogger—the only online competition that starts with just a laptop and a camera and ends in the New York City headquarters of Refinery29 or as a style ambassador for Bar III, the high-profile fashion brand sold only at Macy's.
Launching Tuesday January 31, 2012, Refinery29's style-savvy readers can nominate themselves in this inspiring contest by simply submitting a photo and blog entry showcasing their original work at styleblogger.refinery29.com. From there, Refinery29's top editors will narrow the field to five finalists who will compete against each other over the following weeks in a series of challenges testing their skills in breaking fashion news, whipping up unique looks, street-style stalking, and more. Regular features will cover each phase of the Search for The Next Big Style Blogger contest at Refinery29.com, where readers and fans can vote for their favorite finalists.
Ultimately, one contestant chosen by Refinery29's editors will win the Grand Prize – $1,000, a week-long trip to New York City, and a guest blogger role with Refinery29. First Prize—chosen by the team at Bar III—will represent the brand in a nationwide tour of America's best flea markets for summer shopping. Finally, the contestant with the most votes from Refinery29's readers will win the People's Choice Award. Winners will be announced at the end of March.
Refinery29's search for the Next Big Style Blogger kicks off Tuesday January 31, 2012.
