One of my favorite issues of More magazine is the one where it announces the winners of its nationwide model search. If you're not familiar with the pub, it's for women 40 and older. That means all the models and all the articles are targeted at this demographic, which would include me!
Anyway, this is the eighth annual search, which More conducts along with the Wilhelmina modeling agency. What are they looking for? Well, it isn't someone size 0. It's women 40 and over who are "beautiful, accomplished and confident."
There are open calls in various cities. None of the venues is close to Sacramento - unless you're up for traveling to the Talbots store in Las Vegas on Nov. 10. Otherwise, if you think you've got what it takes, you can enter online with More or Wilhelmina: click here or or here.
Online entries need to be completed by midnight Nov. 15.
You can also mail an entry (current photo and a $25 processing fee) to More/Wilhelmina Model Search, P.O. Box 9151, Garden City, N.Y., 11530-9151. Entries must be postmarked by Nov. 15 and received by Nov. 26.
So, what if you get picked as a Top 10 finalist? You get to go to the Big Apple (free, of course) to participate in the finals on Feb. 20, 2008. The top three winners will be decided by a panel of More editors, Wilhelmina agents and other fashion big wigs.
The big prize is a modeling contract and a huge spread in an issue of More, likely next spring. The hair-care products and clothes are bonus perks!
So, come on Sacramento, enter!
