We offer one scholarship spot in every city and we just love browsing through all those creative entries in order to pick our winners. This latest batch certainly didn’t disappoint, with both of our favourites flexing their artistic muscles and creating these utterly brilliant pieces.
Congratulations to you both, we can’t wait to meet you in New York and Minneapolis really really soon!
If you’d like to try out for the scholarship spot in Austin, London, Brisbane, Melbourne or Auckland it really couldn’t be easier. Simply pull together a blog post and let us know, in whatever format you like, why you should win!
You could draw a picture, make a video, create an animated gif, start a Facebook campaign, get a tattoo (we’re only half joking!)… Anything that your crazy little brain can come up with. Remember: the more creative the better!
Publish your entry on your own blog and then simply post a link to it on our Facebook page. Applications are due 30 days before the date of the class you’re applying for and make sure you state in your entry which city you’d like to attend.
PS If you’d like to book in to either the New York or Minneapolis classes in June, don’t delay. There are not many sleeps to go (and yes, we are counting!)
Planning two workshops at once may be double the work but it’s also double the fun - especially when it came to picking our scholarship winners for both cities at the same time.
The three of us trawled though all your amazing entries late one night, emailing back and forth with our favourite ones. Although we were pretty unanimous that our Los Angeles winner had to be Danielle. Her entry was so cute, creative and fun. We can’t wait to meet you (although shh, Kat already has - and yes, she’s just as adorbs in real life!)
Then for Portland we pickedJessica. Her creative design skills really shone in her video. We love how she took a completely different approach to her entry by using her skills as a graphic designer to really show us what she’s about. We know she’s going to be a fantastic addition to the Portland class.
See you both soon ladies!
Lots of love, squeals and over excited kisses
Your headmistresses, Kat, Gala & Shauna
Just a little reminder that you have until next Friday (15th February) to get your scholarship entries in for either the Portland or Los Angeles workshops. To read more about the scholarship and how to enter, check out the bottom of our FAQ page. We’d love to see you there!
Love from your always-excitable headmistresses,
Kat, Gala & Shauna
Penny, we loved your creative video. We had some seriously (SERIOUSLY!) amazing entries this time round. You can check them all out on our Facebook page – we had everything from sketches to sequins and interactive videos to fancy dress! It really was a tough job to pick just one winner, and we debated every entry back and forth for ages. But in the end, Penny’s cute stop motion video won us over. We loved how it showed her personality, and it really demonstrated the value she’d put on attending the workshop.
And here was her reaction…
OMFG!!!! Can’t tell you how excited I am! Thank you all so much!
Will definitely be shouting from the rooftops, once I come down from the clouds!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
I guess she’s excited, yes?! Well, so are we! We can’t wait to see you in January, babe!
Did you know that we offer one scholarship spot in every city!? Yep, that’s right, one completely free pass to the whole workshop!
For the London classes we’ve mixed it up a little, so to enter we’d like you to pull together a blog post and let us know, in whatever format you like, why you should win!*
You could draw a picture, make a video, create an animated gif, start a facebook campaign, get a tattoo (Kat’s idea and she’s only half joking…!) Basically anything that your crazy little brain can come up with.
Publish your entry on your own blog and then simply post a link to it on our Facebook pageby 14th December 2012. The winner will be notified via email shortly after so be sure to have a contact page somewhere obvious on your blog.
We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
With much love from your headmistresses,
Kat, Gala & Shauna
*The scholarship winner can choose which date they’d like to attend.
Julia, we love you so much for the effort you put into your scholarship video. You made our decision easy! Gala was particularly vocal and ridiculously over-excited about the prospect of having another Kiwi at The Blogcademy…
And this was her response when we emailed her to tell her she’d won!
This is just what went down in my flat…
Oh! new email….OOooooohhhhh NEW EMAIL FROM BLOCADEMY! ech!
OOOOOoooOOOOOh it’s long…and the first sentence….Holy crap…SCREAMmmmy screechhh! Laptop and me to the floor while flatties leap up looking at me in terror having received obviously shocking news!!….tears. Hugs! A top up of the bubbles! And then off to call clever clever John Jo who helped make the vid and then Mum and Dad who said ” YOU DIDN”T?!?!?!”
Guys, this is just nuts and very exciting!! While I had had pretend scans of New York flights and accommo while procrastinating at work I didn’t actually think I would end up winning and putting myself in a situation where I simply HAD to go to NY no matter what my bank account was yelling at me! So thanks so much, talk about best foot forward! I am actualllllyyyyy going to go to MOMA and Jonathon Adler and Central Park and as all my flatmates have said bump into the cast of “Friends” no doubt.
So thanks for giving me the opportunity and push in the right direction ladies. Simply can’t wait to meet you all!
Pack those bags Julia and we’ll see you in New York City baby!
Just wow you guys! We’ve been utterly blown away by the response to The Blogcademy announcement yesterday. Spaces have been selling super quickly and we’ve got people flying into New York from all over the world to attend. We are SO EXCITED to meet you all and to make fun of each other’s crazy accents!
I just wanted to pop by today to highlight our scholarship programme which may have got overlooked by some of you in all the excitement. When planning this event, we decided that we’d very much like to offer the opportunity for one of you, who maybe might never be able to afford to attend the workshop, to be able to experience what we have to offer.
All you have to do for your chance to win a ticket to the event (the prize does not include travel or accommodation) is make a video telling us why you think you should come to The Blogcademy (hint: be creative!) Upload the video to YouTube or Vimeo and simply email us the link! You have until Sunday 16th September to get your videos to us. Then collectively we’ll pick our favourite and that lucky duck will be invited to hang out with us all weekend! Now wouldn’t that be fabulous?
Good luck everyone, we can’t wait to see what you come up with!
