CheriChictopia 's Thoughts:
What is a Style Icon?
Style Icons are members in our community that have amazing style, contribute regularly to the community through photo and blog posts, and have a quite a few fans that follow their style.

How do I become a Style Icon?
First, start by uploading quality photos of yourself and writing a blog post about your look or your day – anything you like really! It helps to build a relationship with other Chictopia bloggers, so it’s beneficial to comment on others’ posts and show your appreciation. This is all a part of being active in the community. By having quality style and positive relationships in the community, you are likely to get a lot of fans. When you get enough fans, you’ll be featured on our Community page under Rising Stars. These are the members in our community that have a good chance to getting considered for Style Icon!

How often do you pick Style Icons?
6 Style Icons are chosen each month.

Who chooses Style Icons?
The community and Chictopia Editors. We look at the users the community votes for (by becoming fans) and compile our list from there. Sometimes, we will choose members that may not be in the Rising Stars section but who we feel have amazing style, great attitudes and have contributed consistently to the community. It’s all about rewarding the best members who support and encourage other members on Chictopia.

Can you break down the criteria for becoming a Style Icon?
1. Original style
2. Quality photos
3. Contributes often to the community by supporting and encouraging other members.
4. Fan base

Thanks!!! I hope to become one one day. Cheri - I had a question, sorry that I asked you in several places! But I was wondering to be able to become a contributing editor for Chictopia, can I post writing samples that I have written for a website, or do you want samples of newly written ones? Just wondering! Thanks Cheri! ; )
