Thank you to all the aspiring writers who entered the ELLE Writing Competition.
We were overwhelmed by the response and received nearly 1,000 entries following our brief to pen a memoir about 'The Outfit I Will Never Wear Again'.
Due to the huge number of entries, which described an array of experiences, some sad, some inspiring and some utterly blissful, we have had to delay announcing the winner until our August issue, on news stands 18 July.
We're sorry to keep you waiting, but we know that the winning memoir will be worth it.
The winner and five runners up will receive a monogrammed Smythson notebook from Selfridges.
We will also be publishing their memoirs on elleuk.com.
Watch this space.
