Hola elskans! We can officially announce that our fifteenth edition will be made in Bogotá, Colombia. It’s our first time in a Latin country (or does Portugal count?); it’s also our first time in the southern hemisphere (well, not quite, but really close).

So if you’d like to be photographed by us and write a story for our Elska Bogotá edition, send us a message, preferably by email, to We’ll be there from 8 – 15 November.
