Of all the fashion magazines based in Toronto, FASHION has really made the effort to establish a presence on to the internet this year. Not too long ago they launched a pretty impressive Myspace profile, linking up to stories on their website as well as directly to Canadian designer’s profiles. From their blog –
MySpace Fashion is the new black?
Perhaps. But we are definitely your source for exclusives from the best Canadian designers, magazines, stylists, models, shops, photographers, insider information from the industry’s best and your ticket to go behind-the-scenes at the best events and parties.
It is always a joy to see a such generous coverage of independent talent from a Canadian fashion magazine. Even if Myspace has not been the new black since 2006.
FASHION MAGAZINE is looking for 10 fashion bloggers across Canada. We want to hear about the fashion finds in your city or town, and share them with our readers. Winners of this exciting contest will become key players on our web site, reporting on the latest shopping scoop in their cities.
So the deal is, contestants submit their blog. 20 finalists are chosen, and FASHION’s readers get to vote for their favourites – ten finalists win a chance to blog about the shopping scene in their city on FASHION’s website. Ah, the fabulous life of a “pro” blogger. Is that all? No, the ten finalists also win a phone with 100 minutes from Virgin. And? The chance to win a trip to New York City.
Since writing shopping posts is not my thing I won’t be entering… but you can bet I will be watching, reading, and voting.
Sounds sort of like an internship right? You get bragging rights… and exposure? Perhaps.
If you are thinking of entering, here is a little tip, fashion blogger to fashion blogger. You better read the fine print.
