FOR over 60 years, Vogue has held its Talent Contest for Young Writers in order to uncover and nurture fresh writing talent. Many established journalists started their careers after entering the contest - including the BFC's Sarah Mower and US Vogue's European editor-at-large Hamish Bowles - and recent winners have gone on to become successful poets, playwrights, authors and members of Vogue's staff - including Vogue's former fashion features director Harriet Quick and contributing editor Charlotte Sinclair. So, what are we looking for?
Journalists who can identify a story and tell it with pace, originality and wit. And the prize? £1,000, plus a month's paid work experience at Vogue, with £500 for the runner-up. If you are under 25 and would like to enter this year, read on...
How to enter - you must complete all sections:
1. Write about an experience you have had that you consider appropriate for the pages of Vogue (800 words)
2. Write a short feature article - a cultural or current-affairs review or fashion or beauty trend (500 words)
3. Write a short interview with a person who is not a member of your family (500 words).
Accompanying your entry should be a passport-sized photograph of yourself, attached to a sheet of paper listing your name, permanent address, telephone number, date of birth and occupation. The judging panel will include Vogue's editor Alexandra Shulman, senior members of the magazine's staff, guest editors and writers. Finalists will be invited to a lunch at Vogue with the judges, after which the winner will be decided. Closing Date: April 11, 2013.
