One trend-setting blogger could win $30,000

Home and garden bloggers, here's your shot at the big time.

Marketplace Events, a company that produces home shows including the Great Big Home + Garden Show and the Cleveland Home + Remodeling Expo, is conducting a national search for a Home + Garden Trendsetter of the Year. The winner will receive a three-month contract to make appearances at home shows — a prize worth $30,000. 

DIY, design and home improvement bloggers are encouraged to enter. The deadline is July 21.

Shelly Gepfert, Marketplace Events’ marketing director, said the company is looking for a blogger who can present onstage in a fun, informative and professional manner, and who has creative and trendy content to share.

"Through this search we are creating our own celebrity," she said.

Six finalists will be invited to create short videos, which will be voted on through social media. The top three vote getters will give stage presentations at the Orlando Home Show in October, where a winner will be chosen.
