SEARCH FOR A MODEL
LAST CHANCE TO VOTE FOR THE 26 FINALISTS
THESE ARE the 24 gorgeous ladies and two handsome men in the running to win this year's 'South East Search for a Model' competition. These finalists have been chosen from hundreds of hopefuls in Carlow, Wicklow and Wexford who entered this great event.
The winning model will receive a magnificent prize package, including a grooming and deportment course from Catwalk Modelling Agency, a makeover and photo shoot sponsored by Bella the Makeover studio and €500 in cash from the People Newspaper Group.
They will also get the chance to win the top prize of €5,000 in the national final in May, sponsored by Gosh Cosmetics. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for each of the aspiring models to fast-track their modelling career.
A text vote number is allocated to each entrant, and as well as the public vote, Mandy Maher from Catwalk Modelling Agency faces the difficult task of deciding which 12 will take to the catwalk in Wexford for the regional final.
She will carry out a brief interview with every candidate and bring her professional opinion to bear alongside the all-important text votes.
The winner will be picked at the Ferrycarrig Hotel fashion show on April 27, with Mandy herself in one of the judges' seats, with Amy Beamish - manager of Monart Spa, and stylist & fashion writer Elaine Scully also on the panel.
The finalists will join models from Catwalk Modelling Agency to model the latest collections from some of Wexford's top fashion houses, when the winner of the People Newspaper Group South East Search for a Model is crowned.
Regional finals will also take place in Drogheda, Kerry and Sligo before a national final is held in Athlone on May 27.
