  1. Y’know, a lot of Americans I’ve met think Ireland IS Britain, so with that in mind, how about an Irish blogger?!! Free People is sold here through Urban Outfitters, and is very popular. Writing for Free People would be a dream come true, and I think I’d have a lot to offer readers and that my blogging style would be suited to the brand.

  2. Do you have to be an established blogger or do you have the same chance if you’re just starting out?

  3. I want to enter really badly, as I really love free people and blogging- however I am only 14! :/ anyone have any alternative suggestions, I’d really appreciate some good advice.

  4. Hey guys! I just read the rules and I’m confused by 4 (i). I’d like to talk about the hot spots in my city but they’re all run by businesses – even the art gallery. I’ve skirted around it but I’d really like to cover it in more detail, with names and places. I’m also concerned that if my blog post breaches any of the rules you’ll just disqualify me!

    Sorry to be so nitpicky, but I’ve put a lot of effort into my entry and don’t want to get disqualified.

  5. Hi Sarah! It’s totally fine for you to name local businesses. If it’s a clothing brand, it may be best to leave out the name just because we are one also! :)

  6. Hello!
    I live in Birmingham, UK and one of the things I LOVE to do is visit National Trust places. You pay a yearly membership and you can visit as many NT places as you like. They usually include a big house with lots of history and huge grounds to explore. I think it it oozes British culture, one that you imagine to be the sweet English countryside including afternoon tea, picnics and fields of green!

    It’s about exploring the out doors and possibly *cough* pretending to be a character from Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice! *sigh*

    Here is my post:

    Thank you!

  7. What’s up Free People!?
    =) Here is my ‘short and sweet’ Blog entry:

    http://www.gabriellatavini.co.uk …scroll down a bit and there it is!

    It’s quite personal and intimate. I hope I don’t come across too pretentious – that seems to be the downfall of being an English Lit student… =/ It’s just I wanted my writing to be as inspiring as these places are to me.
    Anyhow, cheers ma’ dears for having a gander over my stuff.
    My fingers and toes are tightly crossed!

  8. How exciting!
    Just to clarify, it says in the Ts&Cs that we are not allowed to include pictures of any other person? I have photos I’d like to post which show my friends. I have their permission but am a little confused,
    Thank you!

  9. Hi – I just had to repost my entry because the link is now different as I am working on updating my website. THANK YOU! Please see below for new link!

  11. Hello Free People!

    I’m overjoyed that you’ve come to the UK and have absolutely loved showcasing my favourite, quintessentially British hangout for you… the Royal Town of Windsor! I’ve been a massive fan of your clothing for many years now and had a wonderful time popping into your Pop-Up Shop in Selfridges this week. My post combines my much loved local hotspot, with just a splash of Free People glamour!

    I hope you enjoy: http://www.beleza-byems.blogspot.co.uk/2013/08/walking-in-windsor-wonderland.html

  12. Hi there – I’m really excited to enter the UK Blogger competition. I was just going over the rules, and it says that no mention of any brand or company etc. can be made, nor can you include any photos of friends etc. Is this right? My blog post includes both of these (it’s quite tricky not to) and I don’t want to be disqualified for those reasons!

    They suggest the ATF can last the life of the assembly.
    If you do feel a need to say something, the word “transgender” is correct.
