A : Yes, we encourage girls of all shapes and sizes to enter, as we want to relate to and represent all women through the media we put out, but the person has to portray and promote a healthy lifestyle and image. We are all about promoting self love, we will not choose someone who is actively abusing their body, that’s not what we promote.

A : We look for 2-3 of your best photos, photos must consist of close up / portrait photos as well as full body shots, or alternatively full body shots where you can see the face clearly as well.

She’s someone who is confident, not afraid to take chances and chase after her dreams, someone who’s a hard worker and is passionate about everything she touches, and above all someone who’s kind to others, because without kindness, there is no beauty.

A : It’s considered as a factor but not something that’s gonna sway a decision in any one way.

A : We are looking for someone who can represent us in photographic and videographic campaigns. So while you don’t have to be the prettiest, the slimmest, the most muscular or the tallest, you have to have an overall general appeal, or have something interesting about your look or who you are that will appeal to our customers.
