Glam Asia, a publication of the world’s second largest social media company Glam Media, launches a region-wide search for Asia’s next big thing in the fashion blogosphere.
Singapore, 16 Jan 2012 — Come 1 February 2012, Glam Asia will be officially launching Asia’s Top Glam Bloggers, a region-wide competition that aims to find talented and passionate fashion, beauty, lifestyle bloggers — existing or aspiring — from Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, The Philippines, Hong Kong, China and Thailand.
The competition seeks participants who are passionate about fashion, beauty and lifestyle, boasts a unique flair for writing for a savvy and sophisticated audience, has sound opinions on the subject(s), and knows exactly what it takes to keep readers on the edge of their seats.
Winners of the competition stand to win a contract to be one of Glam Asia’s resident or partner bloggers, offering them a unique opportunity to reach out to a wide audience of as many as 250 million from the global Glam Media network. In addition, there are also fabulous prizes to be won —including luxury resort stays for the two top winners of the competition.
The search for Asia’s Top Glam Bloggers is open to (1) Established Bloggers, whose blogs are at least one year old and active; and (2) New & Aspiring Bloggers, who may or may not have an existing blog, but would love to make a name for themselves in the fashion blogosphere in the region. (Those without an existing blog are required to create one to be eligible for the contest.)
“One of the main objectives of this competition is to find and gather quality bloggers under one roof here at Glam Asia as part of our efforts to discover blogging talents and, hopefully, help raise the standard of fashion blogging in this part of the world,” says Karman Tse, Editor of Glam Asia. “Through Asia’s Top Glam Bloggers, we also hope to give aspiring bloggers a solid kick-start, and who knows, pave their way to celebritydom,” she adds.
