capture the cover competition

Hawthorn Sunset via @houseofturtle #capturethecover @yellow_auSunset view from my balcony in Hawthorn on Thursday night

Whilst this winter has been ridiculously cold, we’ve also been blessed with some beautiful sunshine and amazing sunsets. This week I’ve seen some truly incredible shots from everyone on my Instagram feed. Imagine if these shots could see you share in more than $60,000 worth of prizes and star on the front cover of your local Yellow Pages!

Sound appealing? Well, here’s my challenge to you this weekend and for the next couple of months! Get out of bed (always a good start), put on your comfiest (and of course most stylish) clothes and wander down to your favourite cafe, shops, park and hidden haunts in your local area. Take your camera with you or be sure to have your smartphone handy. Snap lots of pics on your journey of what you know and love about the place you call ‘home’.

When you’re done, hop online and enter your best pics into the 2014 Yellow Pages Capture the Cover competition. Or, better yet, do it straight from your phone while you’re out and about via Instagram. Simply tag your pic with #capturethecover and mention @yellow_au in your post! Be sure to tag the name of your suburb also to give it the credit it deserves!

As the theme of this year’s competition is ‘Only Locals Know’, photos must be of your local area. And, no head shots or selfies!

So, go on… get out of bed, head out the door and get snapping!

Visit Capture the Cover for full details. Competition closes 1 September for Adelaide; 8 September for Perth; 22 September for Brisbane; 6 October for Sydney; and 20 October for Melbourne (2013).

Competition Update: And the winner is… Distressed Denim

House of Turtle recently ran a competition for readers to win a prize pack including a fabulous range of new L’Oreal Paris Cosmetics and a Chanel wide-angled mirror and Noir Ceramic.

The challenge for entrants was to tell us their fave items for spring. There were some great entries, which made it a tough job for the judges to choose the winner.

That said, the fabulous prize goes to Jamie for her inspiring entry, which even included a fully styled look via Polyvore. One hundred points for going the extra mile!

Here’s Jamie’s entry:
“My favorite? Has to be distressed denim, particularly the heavily distressed Siwy Hannah in Tempest. And with that must, MUST come a bit of a glam look.

It was hard for me to really try to explain it, so I wanted a visual. Polyvore was perfect.

And, the Noir Ceramic goes AMAZINGLY with the fashion-forward look, if I do say so myself!

We also loved Felicity’s ‘Mimco swan brooch poem and Silvia’s White t-shirt‘ entry, so we are sending you both a L’Oreal Paris Glam Shine.

A big shout out and thank you to L’Oreal Paris‘ Dorothy and Chanel‘s Luisa for their time to judge the entries and for donating such fabulous prizes.
