Call the Shots

You’re picky, opinionated, and have impeccable taste. You’d make a great DailyCandy editor — and now’s your chance to give it a try.

Take part in the Insider Candy Contest and see your ideas in all their glory on May 31, in a DailyCandy e-mail! But that’s not all that’s at stake; you can win Kodak’s brand new EasyShare V610 dual lens digital camera.

Here’s how it works: You submit an idea for what you think would make a perfect DailyCandy story (a secret hotspot, your favorite new designer, or just something hilarious) by May 18. A panel of DailyCandy editors will select the ten most genius pitches. (Remember, writing style counts.) These ten finalists will win an amazing new Kodak V610. The winning pitch will be revealed on DailyCandy* within a few weeks.

The sleek new EasyShare V610 is the world’s smallest 10X optical zoom digital camera — small enough to fit in your pocket. It takes stellar pictures and has embedded Bluetooth® wireless technology, so you can e-mail pics to your pals on the spot.

On your mark, get set, take your best shot.
