Online consumer and lifestyle magazine OPEN Publication is offering a unique opportunity to young writers and requesting a 300-word article regarding the entrant’s chosen fashion topic.

OPEN will choose the winner on 11/09/2012 and they will win a press pass and get to accompany OPEN at London Fashion Week.

OPEN Publication was developed as a platform for graduates and young people with an interest in writing to allow them the opportunity of writing for a widespread magazine, build a portfolio and make various contacts to help progress their careers. All of their writers are volunteers and many have already built up an extensive networking system. OPEN also uncovers undiscovered talent and feels that this competition will provide the stepping-stone needed to break into the consumer and lifestyle industries.

What’s more, the winner will be asked to produce event coverage for OPEN and their feature will be read by the 3500 unique visitors that OPEN receives weekly.

Ama Ukpe, an aspiring journalist and volunteer writer for OPEN Publication says:
“knowing that my article is being read by thousands of people gives me a great sense of achievement.”

Hayley Smith, Editor of OPEN Publication, adds:
“As young people ourselves, we developed OPEN Publication to offer multiple opportunities to young workers. We hone their writing skills and help them develop a portfolio to present to prospective employers. Many of our writers who have gone into employment, still write for OPEN on occasion.”

The competition also offers experience beyond London Fashion Week, with other writing and coverage opportunities potentially presented to the winner. So we are urging people to get their fashionable thinking caps on and get writing. All entrants must send their articles to by 11/09/2012
