Modeconnect launches its first International Fashion Writing Competition run in partnership with The Woolmark Company, Polly King & Co and Laurence King Publishing.
The competition offers aspiring fashion writers and journalists a unique opportunity to gain experience and exposure. It aims to promote “good” fashion writing, writing on fashion that is researched, reflective, insightful, critical, stylish and engaging.
The competition is International. It is open to anyone born between May 1, 1986 and May 1, 1996 who writes in English. The competition has two categories, 18 to 21 and 22 to 27 year old. For each category the first prize is a five weeks Writing Residency in London, UK, during which the winner will have the unique opportunity to collaborate with Modeconnect, attend major London fashion events and interview Holly Fulton or another designer, partner of The Woolmark Company, to be confirmed. Studio accommodation in central London will be provided for the duration of the Residency.
Each of the two rounds of the competition requires the submission of one 600 to 1000 words article. Only those candidates shortlisted following Round 1 will be invited to Round 2. The deadline for Round 1 is February 21, 2014.
