Native Eyewear Opens Voting for the Storytellers of the Next Locals Only Project

Submissions are in and it is now time to vote on the storytellers to be featured in the 2014 Native Locals Only Project in Brevard, North Carolina.

Denver, CO (July 17, 2013) - Native Eyewear opens the voting for the next Locals Only Project storytellers in Brevard, NC on July 17 and completes voting on July 26th. The talent selection will be based on votes received on the Native Eyewear Facebook Page.

Native has collected portfolios from writers and photographers to help create the story for the 2014 Native Eyewear marketing campaign. Submissions are in and now it is time for fans to vote on the people that will tell the story of Brevard, NC from the local perspective.

For full bios, information on the talent selection and to vote, visit the Native Eyewear Locals Only Project page between July 17 and 26th, 2013.

The Locals Only Project is a fan driver program that seeks to find the best mountain towns, the best local talent and the best local adventures- all through fan nomination and votes via social media. Native then works with the locals to curate stories of the community. These stories become the content for the catalog and branding materials, as they truly embody the Native Eyewear brand of adventure, outdoors and the mountain lifestyle. Since Locals Only Project’s inception, Native Eyewear has traveled to Boulder, CO, Hood River, OR and Whitefish, MT.

“Brevard has impressed us with the level of talent in every category,” says Al Perkinson, Vice President of Marketing. “Competition is tight and we are excited for this opportunity to work with such a great group. Now it’s a matter of our fans, their fans and the Brevard community to help choose the crew.”
