Try Out for Top Model 2015 – All Heights, Even Petite / Short Models May Apply

America’s Next Top Model” has removed the height requirements for cycle 22. Aspiring models, both short and tall, can now apply for the show.

For over 20 seasons short models have been left out of the competition but in 2015 they are finally able to apply to be on Top Model and actually be considered. The show has certainly been changing these last few years. The last cycle added male models to the competition and dropped the height requirement down to 5’6″. The new cycle will drop the height requirement completely and allow models of all heights to go after their dreams. Fans will have to wait until cycle 22 begins to see how the Tyra Banks series incorporates the petite models.

ANTM is now casting for cycle 22 and tryouts may be coming to a city near you very soon. The show will be holding auditions in various cities beginning in December and the current list of audition dates and locations may be found below.

So do you want to be on top? If you do, here is your chance to get on Top Model. Better start practicing your walks now because the first casting call will be coming to Fort Smith Arkansas in just a couple of weeks. The show will then be headed to California, Georgia, Ohio and Pennsylvania. More cities may also get added to the current schedule.

Here are a few of the requirements for cycle 22

  • You must be 18 to 27 years of age at the time of application.
  • Producers have removed the height requirement for all models on this cycle; however, Producers reserve the right to change this at any time, including returning to a height requirement. Participants may be all female, all male, or a mix of sexes, in Producers’ sole discretion.
  • You must be a United States citizen and live in the United States. Producers reserve the right to make exceptions on a case-by-case basis.

    I had already sent my photos in to the Casting department. I was wondering if i was able to maybe send a different set of pictures in to them, or am I not allowed to do that because I had already sent 3 photos to them already?

    1. admin

    Lovvve her and would love to meet her.
    Thank you!!

    1. admin

      Casting calls are usually handled by the casting directors for the show and their assistants. Tyra, probably will not be there.

  28. Ariel Wulu

    Do we need to send the email with name, age, height and 3 pictures before attending the audition or is that only for those who cannot attend the audition.

    1. admin

      Those instructions are for those who would like to tryout but don’t come to one of the live auditions. It is to possibly setup a Skype audition. Probably wouldn’t hurt to do both.

  29. TEL Milburn

    Is there actually an application or just send the what’s asked above in the email. Because after reading the requirements it keeps speaking of an application and I want to have everything in order for this audition.

      I don’t see where they ask for an application.

        So what if I am not able to come to the open calls due to the distance, will that jeopardize me being casted?

  34. Sydney Wright

    I was just wondering if they will have any auditions in Phoenix Arizona because I really want to go to one and don’t have the money to travel.
