Another day, another dollar. Another year, another awards ceremony. Pedestrian’s teamed up with Intel to once again highlight the sublime talent of Australia’s blogosphere. The competition this year is on a whole new level – pitting the best-of-the best against each other. With the help of Intel, we’re curating content that’ll explore all things blogging. This will include things like tips on how to create your own platform, and how to deal with the h8rs. Get keen, y’all. It’s set to be, like, the best year yet (here’s hoping).
Margaret Zhang – Shine By Three
Margaret Zhang is a writer, stylist, photographer, creative director and all-round achiever based in Sydney. She started her blog Shine By Three as a creative platform in 2009, and has since expanded it to the style bible it is, all while completing her Bachelor of Commerce / Bachelor of Law at The University of Sydney. She’s worked with brands including UNIQLO, Shopbop, Louis Vuitton and Clinique, and has made us regret all the time we wasted while studying.
The 19-year-old insta-babe from Sydney is queen of all things boho. Now residing in Byron Bay, she’s a self/ie-made model, and her blog is brimming with inspiring, travel-inspired fashion and photography – with everything from post-Coachella desert scenes to Paris Fashion Week snaps.
Sara Donaldson – Harper and Harley
Sara Donaldson is the blogger behind the ultra-chic Harper and Harley. In the six years since launching her site, she has stayed true to her mantra of style essentials in shades of black, white, grey and chic. And our wardrobes couldn’t be happier. Queen curator, Sara has also gone on to work with brands including Tony Bianco, UNIQLO and Swarovski, as well as starring in the Style Network’s series Fashion Bloggers.
Amanda Shadforth – Oracle Fox
Another fashion favourite, Amanda Shadforth is the brains behind Oracle Fox, a style destination. As a photographer and stylist, Amanda creates quality content for her own platform, as well as collaborating with leading industry creatives. Her previous life as an artist is evident in the visual appeal of her work – you’ll need a whole Pinterest just for Oracle Fox ~inspo~.
