Can I submit sponsored content?
Yes, the content you submit can either be sponsored, not sponsored, or a mix of both - your choice.
When are applications due?
Applications must be submitted by Sunday, February 17, 2019 at 11:59pm EST in order to be considered.
How are the winners selected?
Applicants must submit their work through the application in order to be considered for the first round of selection. Our in-house InfluenceHer Collective team members will be narrowing the original pool down to initial nominees across the eight categories. Those nominees will then be presented online for a voting period, where they can encourage friends, family, and followers to vote for them! The voting results will narrow down our selection to three nominees per category, and our panel of judges will select the final category winners.
Can I nominate someone else?
You cannot fill out an application for someone else, but you can encourage her to apply/nominate herself! Simply send her the application link to submit her work.
Remember, applicants must be InfluenceHer Collective members to be considered! If your friend isn’t already a member, she can apply here.
What do I win?
All nominees and winners will receive significant promotion, publicity, and recognition for their work in the space. All nominees will be publicly displayed on influencehercollective.com/awards and promoted via Her Campus social channels, reaching millions of potential new followers.
The eight category winners will receive a weekend trip to Her Conference: Inspire in LA (May 31-June 2), with travel and accommodations provided. During this weekend, they’ll have the chance to meet and mingle with other IHC members, Her Conference speakers, and the Her Campus team - and be recognized publicly on stage at Her Conference. Winners will also receive two VIP tickets to College Fashion Week 2019 (Boston or NYC), a full-day takeover on the @HerCampus Instagram Story, re-grams to @HerCampusStyle and @HerCampusBeauty, and features on influencehercollective.com and hercampus.com.
