There has been a lot of talk about Elle UK lately. With their July cover starring a man (for the first time ever!) and that man being the rather handsome Mr. David Beckham, it is no wonder people have been talking.
BUT, that isn’t what has me talking about Elle UK. Instead I am fascinated about a contest they are holding for interns.
Now, this isn’t your average “win a 2 week internship” contest run by magazines and other media outlets on a daily basis.
Instead these interns are faced with an actual serious task: produce Elle UK’s October issue! How cool is that?!
The contest is called “Edited By The Interns” and according to the contest site, 10 individuals will be hired as the editorial staff that produces the October issue! Jobs include everything from the Fashion Art Editor, to the Make-up Artist, to the Fashion Photographer. This is not your average internship! They are even hiring an editor! And yes, for those of you concerned, this is a paid internship.
I am completely intrigued to how this edition will come out. (So much so that I intend to pay the international cover costs when the time comes, unless one of my UK friends offers to ship it to me!)
So I have to ask you:
What do you think of this contest idea? How much power do you think the interns in charge will be actually given?
