When I was in my pre-teens, I greatly admired the likes of Gisele Bundchen, Adriana Lima, and a number of model-like actresses, and I secretly wanted to be confident, fierce, and graceful like them, complete with the stunning cheekbones and jawline! I remember one day casually scrolling through a top New York modeling agency website just for fun (I was more interested in gathering trivia than actually getting casted/noticed for anything, because let’s be real here), and my mother saw me and immediately freaked out thinking that I, like so many naive girls, was getting swindled in some so-called modeling gig.
I’ve moved on a little past that since then. But today, in addition to sharing this billowy summer look with a lace-insert blouse and a short floral skirt, I want to share an exciting opportunity for girls (and guys!) who are just like my pre-teen self, not only filled with fascination with the modeling world but also yearn for a learning chance to gain confidence and positive body image. Modelmanagement.com, one of the fastest-growing networks in the world for models, photographers, agencies, and industry professionals, has teamed up with the best modeling agencies in more than 30 countries for one of the most exciting international modeling contest: Fresh Faces 2015! Currently in its sixth year, the Fresh Faces contest offers winners an exclusive modeling contract with a top agency in their country and international exposure. A few past winners have gone on to walk the Armani and Prada catwalks in Milan and Paris as well as photographed by Karl Lagerfeld for the cover of ELLE France!
To apply to the Fresh Faces 2015 contest, one simply needs to create a modelmanagement.com profile and submit a photo. Qualified candidates will then be able to share their profile links via social media to collect as many votes as possible before the judges make their selection for the finals. Adriana Lima, Gisele Bundchen, and a handful of other famous supermodels started their careers from participating in modeling contests – and now you can follow that same path too!
Are you ready to be the next Fresh Face?
