Every year some 100 lifestyle and fashion journalists attend ITS. Some of them have been in our juries too, like Hilary Alexander, Cathy Horyn, Susie Bubble, Imran Amed, Colin McDowell and Angelo Flaccavento (to say but a few).
The press coverage in 14 years has been amazing: over 2,700 articles were published in the international press, written by more than 1,250 journalists from 36 nations. And over 70 TV channels have reported the event.
In this social networks era we’ve seen impressive results on platforms like facebook and twitter too. Last year for instance the hashtag #itscontest on twitter generated an exposure of over 33,400,000, a reach of more than 7,900,000 with over 8,300 tweets and 1,400 contributors making ITS 2014 the 9th global trending topic on the final evening of the event, Saturday 12 July 2014.
We’d like to share with you just a short selection of the most impressive coverage we received.
