Pitch Your Heart Out! Pitching Competition for Emerging Fashion Brands
Tue, 25 Apr 2017, 09:30 – Wed, 26 Apr 2017, 18:30 BST
Are you a fashion start-up or emerging brand in need of a content boost? Win a content package worth £10,000 courtesy of content specialists I Heart Studios.
Who is this event for?
London-based fashion companies no more than 2 years old.
The Department for International Trade (DIT) has teamed up with digital content specialists I Heart Studios*. We are giving one lucky brand a head start with their content creation with the choice of either 2 days of studio photo shoots or 1 day of studio and 1 day of creative shoots. This includes visual direction, styling, hair, make-up and post-production. The package is valued at £10,000 – a huge help to follow in the footsteps of I Heart Studios clients such as Hunter, Lyle & Scott, Nicholas Kirkwood, Ted Baker and more.
What do we want from you?
In order to participate in this competition you will be required to first register your company details via this eventbrite page then send us a five-minute video pitch to firstname.lastname@example.org via Wetransfer by Friday 31 March 2017 telling us why you deserve the prize.
Your 5 minute video should include:
- Back story – your brand and how it developed
- Product – what you make and why it is unique
- Marketing – your strategy and knowledge so far
- I Heart Studios’ prize – what you would do with it and why
We will select ten finalists who will be invited to attend a morning session on ‘How to refine your pitch’ with help from an angel investor, founder and brand consultant on 25 April 2017.
Live pitching sessions will then take place on 26 April 2017 in front of an industry audience and judging panel who will select the winning brand.
Regardless of whether you reach the finalist stage or not, we invite you to join us on 26 April for a series of workshops on creating and maximising content led by I Heart Studios' experts and DIT’s international e-commerce team.
