More bloggers. More votes. More last-minute submissions than ever before. And, well, a whole lot of blog scouring (oh, yes, we scanned hundreds!), we've narrowed the talent down to a cool five in Refinery29's 2nd Annual Next Big Style Blogger Contest.
This year’s crush of worthy competitors made narrowing the field over the last two weeks a titanic — if inspiring — feat. To the 1,000+ who threw their gorgeous hats in the ring — we thank you for sharing a little peek into your personal style POV and making this our most exciting contest to date. And, to the thousands upon thousands who voted — here's a hell yeah for helping us hone in on all this amazing new talent. Now, more than ever, we know we have the most endearing and taste-making readers out there.
But, again, only five can square off in our series of blogger challenges and compete for the Grand Prize of $1,000 in cash and a week-long internship here in our New York offices, the First Prize, which includes touring America’s best flea markets as a brand ambassador for bar III (available exclusively at Macy’s ), or the People’s Choice Award, the honor bestowed on the candidate garnering the most votes.
Now, to meet these five inspiring women and vote on which one will ultimately become the Next Big Style Blogger, click over to our contest page. For the final phase of this killer competition, your presence is most definitely requested!
