Rock Your Rack, the annual fund-raiser organised by Models Giving Back (MGB) in aid of the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF), will again take place between Saturday, October 3rd and Sunday, October 18th, 2020, inclusive.
Officially endorsed by the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Rock your Rack celebrates its eighth year of fund-raising in Second Life. Each year it brings together music, art and entertainment into a 14-day event that both raises for for, and awareness of the work carried out by, the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Activities at the event include designer booths, fashion shows, entertainment, an art show, and auctions and hunts.
I’ve previously covered applications for creators / designers (see: Rock Your Rack 2020: theme and designer registrations) – which I’ll just noted are open through the end of July 2020.
In the meantime, on Tuesday, July 7th, the organiser put out a call for bloggers interested in covering the event. However, those applying should take the time to read the blogging requirements ahead of any application, because as the organisers note:
Rock Your Rack is a little different event than your typical fashion event. Therefore, the expectations for bloggers is a little bit different than most events. We expect our bloggers to help get the word out for our musical events, press releases and other things which will not require you to style or set up a shot etc. So please understand this when you see the number of posts we are expecting. It may seems like a lot for a two week event, but some of the posts are given to you and all you have to do is post it as is. Be sure to read all of the information before you blog for our event. Those that are accepted and do not post the early press releases will be dropped before the blogger list is given to the designers to send items out.
Once read and understood, the application from can be found by clicking on the link at the top of the blogger requirements page.
Registrations are also open for live entertainers and DJs wishing to participate in the Rock Your Rack 2020 entertainment activities.
Those interested in participating should follow the links below:
Note that applications for both also close at the end of July 2020 – so if you’re interested, be sure to hop over to the Rock Your Rack website sooner rather than later.
