Anyone can enter Modelsearch
There are no restrictions. If you read through the agencies section on this website, you will see that modelling is not just about good looks and specific dimensions, but about character and individuality. You could be just what they're looking for. "The advertising industry is crying out for models who have character rather than size eight waists", according to Diane Jones of Model Bank.
"The new face of glamour is the man of the street." Modelsearch is the perfect opportunity for you to get up on the catwalk and show off what you have to offer the modelling industry, have some fun and find out whether you've got what it takes.
When a Modelsearch event is organised at a Shopping Centre near you, you're sure to know about it. The local press and radio are likely to be closely involved with the whole event, giving you plenty of opportunities to enter. There will be entry forms in newspapers, leaflets distributed throughout the shopping centre as well as on-street promotions inviting and encouraging people to take part. You need to fill out and submit an entry form along with a photograph. Entries are divided into four categories: ages 4 to 6, 7 to 10, 11 to 15 and 16+. You will then be invited personally by letter to the heats at the Shopping Centre, with details of where and when to register.
At the finals, the contestants are painstakingly whittled down, leaving just eight winners, a boy and girl from each age category. One lucky winner receives a years modelling contract with the agency that has sponsored that particular Modelsearch event.
