Ford Model and V Magazine model search and modeling competition 2013 / 2014
Ford Models and V Magazine have teamed up for a nationwide model search going on now. ARE YOU THE NEXT FEMALE FACE OF FASHION? You can now submit your modeling application online to find out.
This is a modeling competition that will be judged by a panel of fashion and beauty insiders. The winner of the modeling contest will get a chance to be in a photo shoot with a famed fashion photographer.
In the spring of 2013, Vman and Ford teamed up to do a male model search. The winner of that search appeared on Vman magazine and was also in a photoshoot that was taken by fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld.
The full prize for the winner of the 2014 model search has not yet been announced, but looking at past contests, I’m sure it will be great.
