Are you the undiscovered supermodel of tomorrow?
Participating in model contests is an excellent tool for promoting your modeling career. You'll find a variety of modelling contests: model of the year competitions, local contests, and competitions for any age, from kids' contest to even contests for seniors. Prizes vary, sometimes cash, sometimes gifts, often contracts, but always they create exposure in one form or another.
If you're a new or aspiring model, modeling contests can be a perfect springboard to launch yourself into the public or professional eye. Established models often enter contests to boost their careers or branch out into another direction.
If you've set your sights high, major modeling agencies such as Ford, Elite, Karin, Wilhelmina and others run regular model competitions, vetted by scouts looking to scoop the supermodel of tomorrow.
As a competition participant (or a parent of one) there are a few pointers you can bear in mind that can help you maximize your chances of success: First impressions count. You only get a few minutes to catch the reviewer's eye, so be sure to select the best photos from your portfolio when entering fashion modeling contests. Start slow, especially when it comes to children and babies. Look for free modeling contests. If you are just starting out, free modeling contests may be the best way to get a lot of exposure in a short amount of time.
These free contests often pass on the photos entered to top executives at modeling agencies and fashion magazines who are looking for the latest fresh face. The Internet has a variety of free photo and modeling contests you can enter. These often get more competition than offline competitions because they are open to so many entrants. Entering these model competitions can be as quick and easy as simply uploading a photo and filling out a form.
