It’s back . . . and it’s bigger and better than ever! Launching on Monday 30th May, Make Me the NEXT Model 2011 Competition is NEXT’s latest nationwide search for new modelling talent.
As well as the opportunity to star in photo-shoots for NEXT and be a part of the SS12 marketing campaign, this year’s two overall winners will each have a £2,000 shopping spree at NEXT plus an introduction to leading model agency Storm.
The action kicks off with a fabulous six-date road show tour, starting at London Westfield on 30th May. We’ll also be travelling west to Bristol and north to Glasgow. And, as well as crossing the sea to Dublin, we’ll be in Birmingham and Manchester too. At each venue, the NEXT and Storm teams will be on hand to offer help and advice on entering the competition. We’ll even have someone on hand to take your picture. It could be the gorgeous snap that launches a glittering career as the next big name in modelling.
Entry is open to guys and girls aged 18 and over, who permanently reside in the UK or Republic of Ireland. And it couldn’t be easier to get into the running. All they have to do to enter the Model Competition is upload a picture (plus contact information) at next.co.uk/model.
Once approved, every entrant’s picture will be displayed in our online gallery at next.co.uk/model. An online public vote will decide the top 250 – each of whom will be invited to attend NEXT’s fabulous one-day Runway Academy in London on 29th July. This will be a unique opportunity to meet industry experts and gather invaluable advice on all aspects of modelling. Our judges (drawn from NEXT, Storm and Grazia) will be there too, choosing the lucky 50 who’ll return for the following day’s exciting live grand final.
Doesn’t Make Me the NEXT Model 2011 sound like something every girl and guy out there ought to know about?
