The StarNow Model Search press release


NEWS
Filed by Lucire staff/February 7, 2008/2.15


Creating a successful career in the glamorous world of modelling is the dream of many Australian models, but seemingly far out of reach for most. Getting started can not only be expensive, but like the rest of the showbiz industry it is often more about who you know rather than what you know that launches an aspiring model into a glittering career.
   Luckily for those wishing for their big break into this exclusive industry, one might have just come along thanks to a website internationally renowned for making stars.
   StarNow.com, an online provider of casting calls and auditions to the modelling industry, is offering budding Australian beauties a chance to win a complete start-up modelling package, including top industry connections and prizes, as part of an online nationwide model search open during February.
   Up for grabs is a dream package with thousands of dollars worth in prizes from top industry brands including a Lucire fashion magazine photo shoot, possible agency representation with Chadwick and Nova Models, a full portfolio photo shoot, a wardrobe and hair makeover, and more.
   But this is no Next Top Model reality show. Hopefuls need not even audition for their big break; they simply need to register online through StarNow.com for their chance to launch their new career at the click of a button.
   So what makes an aspiring model into a household name?
   Publisher of Lucire magazine, and model search judge, Jack Yan, believes that the model’s versatility will play a big part in selecting the winner of the model search: ‘We want a model who, depending on angle, poses, mood and just her look can convey anything from cool to sultry, playful to dramatic.’
   Other celebrity judges on the panel this year include Miss Universe 2007 finalist Laural Barrett, Martin Walsh, partner and co-owner of Chadwick Models, Caroline Barley, Director of Nova Models, Laura Ming-Wong, Editor of Lucire, and Samantha Fava, the winner of last year’s Napoleon Perdis Model Search hosted by StarNow.com.
   Applications close on February 29. Hopefuls can enter at www.starnow.com/modelsearch.
