Are you an aspiring writer, photographer, stylist, website developer, graphic designer, statistician or super-talented slashie, passionate about the future of females?


Drumroll please… Introducing the Miss FQ Collective

Are you an aspiring writer, photographer, stylist, website developer, graphic designer, statistician or super-talented slashie, passionate about the future of females? Would you like to have your voice heard and amplified by a powerhouse brand (*ahem* that would be us BTW) while initiating conversations and helping to tell important stories? What about exclusive invites to Miss FQ parties, fashion shows and film screenings, access to the Miss FQ team and wider fashion and media industries, advance copies of each new issue of Miss FQ, and the chance to see your own work published online and in print? Most importantly, do you live and breathe Miss FQ?

Then we want YOU to be part of the Miss FQ Collective.


The Miss FQ Collective is a squad of switched-on readers, each with something to say and looking for a platform to say it. Part focus group, part contributors’ panel and totally VIP, the collective will be regularly called upon by the Miss FQ team to respond to topical questions, and to submit work that could be featured in our magazine and on our website and social media channels. Your diverse backgrounds and opinions will make you a voice for other young Kiwis whose thoughts and ideas we want to see and share more of in 2018.


As a member of the Miss FQ Collective you will contribute as part of a panel to a spread in the next three issues of Miss FQ. You will need to adhere to our editorial deadlines (no homework extensions here!), but don’t worry, we will give you plenty of time to do your thing, as well as guidance along the way from an appropriate Miss FQ mentor. You will be assigned additional tasks based on your area of expertise, whether that’s writing an article on the latest food trends or producing a photo shoot to be published on And as an official Miss FQ ambassador, you will receive a hot-off-the-press copy of each new issue to promote via your personal social media channels.


In addition to regular exposure both in print and online, with your own bio and a portfolio of your contributions housed under the Miss FQ Collective tab on, you will be sent amazing products and beauty samples to review — many of which won’t even be available to buy yet. And if that’s not enough to induce the envy of your friends, you’ll get all the perks that come with being in the inner circle of New Zealand’s best-selling magazine for millennials.


Apply below. We want you to tell us a bit about yourself, the causes you are passionate about, and what you would bring to the table as a member of the Miss FQ Collective. Applications are open now for the first round (we will recruit for our next round later in 2018). We can’t wait to hear from you!
