Last year, we were blown away by our readers’ creative entries in our first-ever Rookie Stylist competition – more than 1 400 entrants displayed their favourite nooks in their own homes on Instagram. We’re passionate about all things beautiful and love to celebrate the ways in which South Africans decorate their spaces, a philosophy we share with MRP Home, so the Rookie Stylist competition is back in 2020!
Every week, one lucky entrant will win a MRP Home voucher worth R2 000 (the recipient will be selected by the Home team) and, ultimately, the overall winner and Rookie Stylist for 2020 will receive a R15 000 MRP Home voucher to spend on whatever delights their senses. This winner will also be chosen by the Home team, and as an added bonus, the winner’s home will be shot for publication in an upcoming issue of Home, SA’s best-selling décor and gardening magazine.
HOW IT WORKS
1 To participate, take a photo of any nook in your home, using your cellphone (take it in natural light for best results). Do a close-up or step back for a wide-angle shot. You could choose a room, a stoep, a focal wall, shelf or bed – anything goes, as long as it’s pretty and styled to your satisfaction.
2 Upload this picture to your Instagram account. If you don’t have an account, create one by downloading the app in the Apple app store or on Google Play.
3 Write a short caption, add the hashtags #rookiestylist2020, #tuishomemag and #mrphome, and also tag @mrp_home and @tuishomemag – and off you go!
The competition runs from 25 May to 17 July 2020.
