ONE of the beauties vying for your votes could be the next face of a top fashion chain, thanks to the Kells Modelling Competition 2009.
This year the competition is giving its winners the ultimate prize – the chance to compete to become the face of label Unique Boutique, who distribute clothes across the UK and Europe.
The Evening Mail is today launching round one of the competition, which has been split into two categories, under 18 and over 18. One winner will be picked from each category.
This year, Kells and Unique Boutique have teamed up to offer the following prizes:
- The chance to attend a casting session to go up against professional models to become the face of Unique Boutique throughout the UK and Europe – which would include a three day photoshoot on location modelling for Unique.
- A three-day all expenses paid trip to London to model for Unique at the Pure trade event, the UK’s biggest fashion and accessories trade show.
- A spot on the Unique Boutique stand with professional models at the Pure event.
- An all-inclusive trip to Fuerteventura in September for a photoshoot and a modelling portfolio worth £500.
The Kells team is now recruiting for contestants for rounds two and three of the competition and need 20 girls for each category in each round.
Girls must be 16 or in their last year of senior school to enter.
The 40 girls chosen for the final will wear a Unique Boutique outfit, which will be provided by Kells Clothing.
This year the judging panel will be tougher than ever, as a fashion rep from Unique Boutique will be at the grand final to decide who will get their hands on the star prize.
The competition venue has now moved to the Bluebird Function Suite, which will be transformed for the final of each round so the girls can strut their stuff in a catwalk face-off.
Dawn Kells, competition organiser, said: “I really think this year’s prize brings the competition to another level. The girls were absolutely ecstatic when I told them about the prize. It’s unbelievable. Just think, a girl from around here could be the face of Unique Boutique. It’s fantastic.”
