Newsworks is showcasing the very best of vintage with top stylists and journalists at MAD//Fest, and we’re giving three agency fashionistas £200 to spend on preloved clothes and the chance to flaunt their eye for fashion on the Newsworks runway
All you have to do is send in a 60-second video or up to 150 words telling us a little bit about your style. We want to hear about what inspires you, what you love about pre-loved and vintage fashion and any top tips for putting together an outfit.
The three chosen entries will be given 10 days and £200 to put together a showstopping, preloved outfit from any shop or platform of their choice, which they will then model at our lunchtime fashion event at MAD//Fest on Tuesday 4 July.
They will have the opportunity to have their outfits critiqued by top style journalists and judged by our audience, with the overall winner on the day taking home another £300 in pre-loved fashion vouchers.
We’ll also accept nominations from colleagues (with your permission, of course!) and you’re welcome to submit any images or social media accounts that back up your case.
This competition is now closed.
This form is currently closed for submissions.
Terms and conditions
Entrants are required to submit a 60-second video or 150 words answering the prompt to enter. Attaching images or social media profile links to entries is welcomed but not obligatory.
Three entrants to the competition will be given £200 in cash (paid via bank transfer) to spend on preloved and vintage clothing from vendors of their choosing. This prize is non-transferable. Only entrants working in the advertising industry are eligible to enter and the winners selected by Newsworks will have been judged to have given the best answers to the prompts given.
The submission deadline for the competition is 23:59 on Tuesday 20 June. Colleagues are welcome to nominate entrants on their behalf, but they must have the entrant’s prior permission and entrants can only enter once (either by themselves or through nomination). The winning entries will be announced in Newsworks’ News from Newsworks newsletter.
Entrants must be available on Tuesday 4 July between 13:00-14:00 and willing to appear on stage in Newsworks’ MAD//Fest fashion event, where they will model their outfit on our runway and answer short questions about the outfits they created.
On the day, one winner will be chosen by popular audience vote to win £300 in preloved fashion vouchers. This prize is non-transferable and not redeemable for cash.
Entrants must spend the full £200 on their preloved outfit to qualify for the final prize, as well as be able to provide proof of spend upon request. Entrants may keep all clothes purchased upon appearing in our show. We reserve the right to ask for these funds to be reimbursed to us if an entrant fails to participate in our Newsworks’ MAD//Fest fashion event.
