How do you decide who gets sponsored?

Each brand partner has their own judging criteria. You can learn more about the criteria when the application opens. Even if you don’t get the sponsorship in the past, you can apply again every time the opportunity comes up.

If I’m already a member, can I still get sponsored?

Yes! You can still apply for a sponsorship even if you’re a current member. If you are selected, REC will extend your membership for an additional 1 year. Free of charge.
