We also can't wait to see what talent is out there and who will be the new face of Soma Model.tv.
SAN FRANCISCO, CA (PRWEB) March 27, 2007
Soma Management, an original content creator of short form and compelling video focused on women's lifestyle interests, has teamed up with Veoh Networks, the leading innovator in Internet television, to launch a nationwide search for the new face and host of its new Internet video channel, Soma Model.tv.
The channel recently debuted on Veoh.com and the Soma Model Show Host Contest, which begins March 14, 2007 and runs through April 14, 2007, is open to women ages 18 to 25 and will be conducted exclusively on Veoh.com.
Soma Management is looking for more than a pretty face. Although, all entries will be judged with a strong emphasis on beauty and desire to model, interested participants will be asked to submit a one to two-minute video through the Soma Model channel on Veoh.com that demonstrates their love for fashion, as well as showcases their ability to captivate, entertain and be fun on camera.
"We're thrilled that we can offer such an exciting and easy way for young women to give themselves exposure and have the opportunity to possibly begin a modeling career," says EC Morgan, CEO of Soma Management. "We also can't wait to see what talent is out there and who will be the new face of Soma Model.tv."
"We are pleased to be working with one of the leading digital entertainment creators of women's lifestyle content on the Web today," said Dmitry Shapiro, founder and CEO Veoh Networks. "Soma Management will have the unique opportunity to utilize the rising popularity of user-created content to find their new face while capturing interest from Veoh's online community."
In addition to hosting to company's online channel, the winner will receive a modeling contract valued at $25,000 with guaranteed work and promotional materials such as professional photographs, video and a work portfolio that will serve as an invaluable tool in kick-starting their modeling career.
Unlike other online sites that merely offer "video snacking" or short video clips, Veoh.com is an Internet television content delivery system that is able to distribute TV-quality, full-screen videos to hundreds of millions of users around the world. From the largest studios to up-and-coming independents, Veoh offers more than 10 million videos from thousands of broadcasters each month that are considered some of the most diverse and compelling long-form, high quality programs online today. More niche than cable, consumers can easily find programs of specific interest to them whenever and wherever they want.
