Pitch Your Mate
In this round you will pitch your mate in the comments section of the Aussie Owned Blog. 6 pitches will make it through to the editor round. Not only will your mate love you forever if you score them an editor request, but we’ll be rewarding the mate with the most requests a prize—cause you’re such a good mate and all. Good on ya!
In this round, you’ll pitch on your own blog. We’ll have a linky list here on Aussie Owned you’ll need to join. The Aussie Owned Team will be visiting all the blogs on the list between the 14th and 16th June. Each of us get 3 picks. So that will be a total of 24 pitches through to the editor round.
We’ll announce the editor line up and wish lists next week. Make sure you don’t miss it, we’ve got some great names!
Until then catch us on the #pitcharama twitter hash tag.
