Are you looking to be a model and looking for the top model searches and ways to get yourself noticed? Well look no further there is a good amount of modeling competitions and model searches that are scheduled for 2012 as well as 2013.
Many companies use model searches and model competitions to find new talent as well as bring some great publicity to their company.
There are some very famous model searches such as America’s Next Top Model – A hit reality series that travels nationwide to find the models. Also there are some less known model contests that take place in clothing stores and online such as ‘The GAP’ model searches, BabyGap model contest, Rip The Runway 2012, Baby Phat and ‘Torrid’ model contest.
Modeling contests are just that. They are a contest that potential models enter in hopes that they get picked to be on the show, the commercial or the photo shoot. Usually hundreds to thousands of aspiring models enter and a few will win the huge prize of being in the shoot, the catalog or the reality TV show.
Some of these modeling contests are local where you have to attend an open casting call or audition within a store or other venue to apply, while others are actually nationwide, travelling to different cities or taking submissions online.
No matter which type it is, it is always a great event to attend, especially if your goal is to be a professional model because many times like in past Torrid Model Searches, even some of the runners up got modeling contract with large agencies. It is a great way to be seen by the people that make the decisions on who to cast for what show and actually get yourself out there to do something about your dream and hope you get noticed. Truth is, if you don’t get out and only dream, most likely you will never get noticed. If you enter a modeling contest in 2012 you have a shot and with the right look, the right attitude and a great bit of luck you may in fact land your dream job of strutting down that runway or appearing in the catalog.
