-- BOSTON, MA - After the successful launch of their inaugural Themed Pictorial Challenge in April 2011, Linger Magazine (Linger) has launched the highly anticipated 2nd Annual Themed Pictorial Challenge, a visual story-telling opportunity created for photographers, makeup artists, hairstylists, fashion stylists, designers and models to display their cohesive talents to a global audience. This year’s challenge is accepting submissions until August 15, 2012.
“My goal with creating the annual challenge is to unify creative talents,” states Tiffany Tate, founder & editor-in-chief of Linger Magazine. “Whether participants host a casting call to create a team for the challenge or work with their own established team, my goal is to initiate the process of unifying creative forces all over the world.”
This year’s challenge is also very special to Tate for two new reasons – the implementation of theme options and an established philanthropic effort. “We have created 6 different themes for teams to choose from. I really felt that these options would help exemplify each team’s talents,” Tate explained. “I feel that the themes provide each team with the creative spark needed to think outside-of-the-
box. Just look at our past issues. It quickly becomes apparent that we have a totally different view on fashion…and our readers demand it!”
Dedicated to making a difference in and out of the fashion industry, Linger is dedicating 50% of all registration fees received to support Cradles to Crayons. Cradles to Crayons provides homeless and low-income children newborn to age 12 with the essentials they require to thrive - to feel safe, warm, ready to learn, and valued. During the months of July through September, Cradles to Crayons focuses on getting local children ready to learn through their Ready for School initiative. Funds raised through Linger will help to provide children in-need with everything they need for a new year of school including footwear, clothing and school supplies. “We are dedicated to joining Cradles to Crayons’ efforts to make sure that every child starts the school year off on the right foot,” Tate shared. “We are asking that you join forces with us in this very important cause too!”
