From now until March 15, 2010, Next Direct Children’s Model Competition invites US parents or legal guardians to submit pictures of their children or legal wards for public online voting. The fifty contestants who amass the most votes by the closing date will be flown to Los Angeles, California for a fun-packed two-day finals event at Universal Studios on April 24 and 25, 2010.
At this event, the overall winner will be selected by a judging panel drawn from top executives at Wilhelmina and Next on the basis of photographs taken during the program of activities, together with an ability to represent the spirit of the Next brand as well as work confidently in front of a camera within a fashion setting.
Up for grabs is an exceptional prize: a $100,000 college scholarship fund, plus a one-year modeling contract with Wilhelmina Models. In addition, the winner will participate in a fashion photo shoot for Next.
Next is one of Britain's leading fashion names, specializing in quality, stylish but affordable clothing and accessories for men, women and children. In addition to over 500 stores in the UK, and 170 others in Europe and Asia, Next is already the biggest fashion e-tailer in Europe.
