ASOS, Look Intern competition UPDATE



So over the last couple of days I have been inundated with support for my post about the ASOS, Look mag intern competition.

I can tell you this evening, I have finally had confirmation that the competition has been cancelled.


I am hoping that they will, in the future be holding this competition again but with better entry criteria.

If they do, I will fully support this competition. My issue was never with the internship, or the photo being PART of entry, my issue was with the competition being judged PURELY on a photograph.


And ASOS and Look magazine have listened.


I'd like to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who got involved, commented, retweeted, wrote about it themselves and helped make our voices heard.

We CAN make a difference.

Especially when we all stand up together for something we believe in.


So thanks again.

I'm off to burn that onesie.

  1. Woo hoo! Go Kellie!! Good to see they have bowed to the consensus that what they were doing was not only wrong but incredibly insulting to anyone who wants to write for a living but finds it tough to do so.

  2. Power to the People!!! PROUD DAY.

    Yes I agree Kellie, if it comes back no with reasonable terms and conditions it'll be a great opportunity.
    I reckon they started to panic when they realised you had the highest votes :-) loved the onesie!

  5. Late to the party in finding out about this, but what a result! It amazes me that people who presumably worked so hard to get into such positions at Look and Asos found it appropriate to run a competition that demeans hard work and talent in favour of looks.

    I was a finalist in an Asos blogger competition a few years back that at least gave a chance to submit work that showed what you were capable of. Let's hope the competition returns with fairer and less shallow terms and conditions this time!
