Here's How YOU Can Become An R29er For A Day

At the risk of sounding too braggy, we've got to admit that the Refinery29 HQ is a ridiculously fun place to work. We're big fans of impromptu fashion shows, we love to bounce ideas off one another, and we've never met an office-wide happy hour we didn't like. Yet, while we occasionally open our doors for parties or share BTS snaps via Instagram and the official #insider29 hashtag, most don't get a chance to see exactly what goes on behind closed doors.

Now, we're about to change that for two lucky people, thanks to our Pitch R29 competition. Inspired by The Internthe new movie from Nancy Meyers (writer and director of It's Complicated, The Holiday, and Something's Gotta Give) and starring Anne Hathawaywe're encouraging YOU to pitch us your best R29 story idea via Twitter. Between September 15 and September 28, tag your pitch with @refinery29 and @wbpictures and add #R29xTheInternContest for a chance to win round-trip airfare to New York, a two-night hotel stay, plus (drumroll please!) a day at R29's HQ. You'll meet with key editors and creatives, go out to lunch with the staff, and even attend one of our in-office photo shoots before heading home with a tote full of R29 swag. So pitch us your cleverest, most original idea, and we'll see you at the watercooler soon.
