The Wanderer Best-Dressed Edmonton of the Fall Contest Opens Today | The Wanderer Online

Over the last week, we’ve brought the “Who Needs Feminism?” project to readers, taking a concept originally developed at Duke University and bringing it to Edmonton, Alberta. The project was a success, and we’ve decided to make this section a permanent part of the website.

Today, however, we begin a new contest: The Wanderer Online Best-Dressed Edmonton of the Fall. From October 27 to November 15, our Wanderer photographers will be out and about in Edmonton, looking for the most stylish post-secondary students. We’ll be on campus, we’ll be downtown and we’ll be on Whyte all throughout the coming weeks, looking for candidates for the title of best-dressed. On top of this, students from any Edmonton post-secondary school, such as the U of A, Grant Mac and Concordia, can send their photos in to us at We’ll post the leading candidates online for all to see, with the top 10 male and female entrants  being narrowed down to three via an online vote. Following that, a panel of judges made up of Wanderer style critics and fashion leaders from the city will select the top male and female entrants.

Winners will receive a photoshoot with our photography editor, Skye Oleson-Cormack, styling by fashion leader Jessica Clark and a spread in our initial Wanderer Magazine. As the contest unfolds, we’ll announce other perks for the winners, so you have to stay tuned!

Submit up to three photos in your staple clothing to, along with your full name, school, and a short one-sentence description on your personal style. When you submit, you acknowledge that The Wanderer can post the photographs online (along with entrants’ names and schools) and that only our favourite photographs will make it to the final cut for voting.

    School is expensive. Fashion is too. Showcase true style and creativity. What about a “best dressed on a student budget category”?

      If you’re a student, it’s a student budget, and money is not fashion, man.
