Over the last few months you may have noticed that I have been talking quite a bit about a mall that is not only local to me (a five minute drive!), but it’s one of my regular shopping destinations.
I’m talking about The Oshawa Centre!
They have announced some very exciting changes which will be revealed soon (fall 2016) and are part of their $230 million dollar renovation.
260,000 sq. ft. will be added to the mall which will include 60 new stores, and also a 1,000 seat food court and 2 new restaurants.
The Oshawa Centre has decided to launch an incredible new contest starting today to find it’s first ever Style Icon. The search is for a sassy and stylish local to act as an Oshawa Centre Ambassador.
The style ambassador will promote the Oshawa Centre, it’s retailers, and the exciting changes leading up to (and beyond) the unveiling the incredible revamp the mall has underway.
Here’s how to enter!
Starting today, April 5, 2016, through Friday April 22, 2016, style mavens are invited to enter the contest on Instagram.
1. Follow @OshawaCentre and participating retailers @LeChateau and @Lululemon on Instagram
2. Post a photo or video of a styled ‘outfit of the day’ on Instagram tagging @OshawaCentre and participating retailers using the hashtag #OCStyleIcon.
Contestants may post more than one photo to showcase multiple styled looks.
Up to 20 semi-finalists will be selected on Tuesday, April 26, 2016, and asked to submit a sample blog post on an assigned topic for a chance to be a finalist and featured as a guest blogger.
Three finalists will be invited to Oshawa Centre on Tuesday, May 10th, 2016 for a final judging competition where they’ll be asked to style two looks (one daytime and one ‘athleisure’ look).
A panel of judges (including yours truly!) will select a winner based on a set of criteria.
What will the Oshawa Centre Style Icon Win?
They will receive some incredible prizes including a grand total of $8,000 in Oshawa Centre gift cards, a guest blogger position, VIP and priority access to events, collaboration on Oshawa Centre campaigns and retailer perks.
Sounds amazing right? Well what are you waiting for? Let’s see your stylish looks on Instagram!
