Paris, Milan, Saskatoon? FASHION Magazine Reveals Twenty Finalists for National Reporter Search

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 8, 2008) - Will Guelph, Halifax or Saskatoon be the next fashion capital of the world? The entries are in, the submissions are combed and the competition is fierce for FASHION Magazine's Reporter Search 2008. The editorial team has short listed 20 finalists - only ten will make the cut to join the esteemed ranks of Canada's best read fashion magazine for one year.

The final decision rests with the public and voting commences today, July 8, 2008, at www.fashionmagazine.com/reportersearch. The site features bios and profiles of the 20 finalists, who hail from Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Toronto, Belleville, Guelph, Montreal, Halifax and St. John's.

Reporter Search 2008, sponsored by Virgin Mobile, is just one example of FASHION Magazine's objective to bring the world of fashion home to style-conscious Canadians, in every pocket of our vast country. "The team at FASHION has been so impressed with the submissions," said Ceri Marsh, FASHION Magazine's Editor-in-Chief. "But we're even happier that the final decision is up to the public, as we would have had a really hard time choosing winners from this fantastic group of contestants."

Winners will be unveiled in September 2008 and the one candidate who generates the most public votes will win a trip to New York City, provided courtesy of NYC & Co. Full details are available at www.fashionmagazine.com/reportersearch.
