New York, NY (PRWEB) May 06, 2013
KidzVuz, the video review and sharing site and app for kids, and FPgirl, the style and fashion destination for tween girls, have joined forces to find the next girl fashion reporter. The search kicks off with a video contest asking girls to show off their fashion savvy and style.
"Fashion has always been a very popular topic for users of our site," explains Rebecca Levey, co-founder of KidzVuz. "So teaming up with FPgirl to help them find a girl fashion reporter just made sense."
To help decide who will be the next FPgirl fashion reporter, the contest, run on KidzVuz' COPPA compliant video platform, asks girls to leave a short video about their favorite outfit, fashion trend, or fashion icon. The top three entries, chosen by the FashionPlaytes team, will win a $50 FashionPlaytes gift card. Then, the top videos will be posted on the site, where the FPgirl community will choose a winner.
"At FPgirl, we are all about empowering girls to be creative and think for themselves,” says Stacy Coleman, Interactive Marketing Manager. “Our highly engaged community is constantly filling us in on their favorite styles, trends and more, so this contest is a great extension to those efforts. Partnering with KidzVuz, who has a similar community and the same values regarding tween safety and privacy protection, seemed like a natural fit.”
"Safety is our top priority," agrees KidzVuz co-founder Nancy Friedman "we watch every video and read every comment before it goes up. And it's not automated. We use actual human beings! That way, we know that kids are empowered, engaged, and protected."
The KidzVuz FPgirl contest gives tween girls – who are too young to be on YouTube – a chance to be content creators, and not just content consumers. Through the contest, they get to express their style, their opinions and themselves.
The contest runs through May 20th and girls can enter at http://www.KidzVuz.com/contests.
