Important Update re: “The Benjamin Kanarek Blog & Fashion Indie” Fashion & Beauty Photography Contest #2


Important Update: 2nd Photo Contest Moved to November 1st

Due to the fact that we are in Summer Holiday mode, we have decided to move the Benjamin Kanarek Blog & Fashion Indie Fashion & Beauty Photography contest deadline to November 1st, 2010.

Please send your Fashion or Beauty editorial to:

Here is the contest outline:

We are pleased to announce that and are partnering for “The Benjamin Kanarek Blog-Fashion Indie Fashion & Beauty Photography Contest #2” The winner of both categories will be published in a separate post on both Fashion Indie and Benjamin Kanarek Blog and the 3 runner’s up will be featured on a special post as well and the  final winners will win a package of gifts from our supporters.  (To be announced shortly.)

Fashion Indie Media is a fashion lifestyle network that connects to over 350 independent publishers and 5,000,000 readers monthly. is the most read fashion news aggregator on the web, beating Women’s Wear Daily ( in readership and reach.

TheyEnvy.Us is a fashion social portal and the online home of ENVY Magazine.

This contest is quite different from our first offering.

There are two possibilities:

– You may chose to do either a 6 image MINIMUM, vertical or horizontal (landscape) mixed Fashion Editorial,

– or a 4 image MINIMUM vertical or horizontal (landscape) mixed Beauty Editorial.

This contest is  being done to replicate a real Fashion or Beauty Editorial in a Fashion magazine, so clothing styling is really important as is accessories for the Beauty Story. Do your research before submitting.

We at BK Blog & Fashion Indie expect to see a very well defined theme or story for this exercise, as would any Art Director, Fashion & Beauty Editor or Picture Editor. We expect that you will find a fashion stylist to choose the most up to date fashion and accessories. We will be very demanding in terms of the quality of hair & make-up styling and if need be we suggest you also use a manicurist. If you are serious about this profession you will understand what is required to produce a polished final product.

***Material for this contest must be original and has not been published in the past in any online or hard copy Fashion/Beauty Magazines.***

The deadline of this contest is November 1st, 2010.

There may also be a surprise prize, if I can pull it off that is 😉

Send your submissions to:

and make sure you indicate “Contest 2” Fashion or Beauty.

Good Luck
