So I've heard being a model isn’t easy. It’s not all about looking beautiful, strolling down acatwalk and admiring your 50ft-tall face on a Times Square billboard.
But, if you think you have what it takes, ShortList can help. They have joined forces with DKNY and top agency Premier Model Management to launch a competition to find the next male supermodel.
There are, as you might expect, rules for entry. Firstly, they need you to be a UK resident, aged between 17 and 24, and be between 6ft and 6ft 3in in height. If you fit the entry criteria, enter using the web address below and upload two good photographs — one that clearly shows your face and another shirtless, head-to-waist shot (feel free to cc me in!)
Throughout the competition ShortList’s very own style director Adrian Clark will whittle the entrants down and pick his top ten every week - so make sure they get your best snaps.
Further down the line a panel of judges, which includes Clark, will then pick a list of finalists who’ll face a public vote, with the winner being revealed in a ceremony in March 2012.
The winner will be represented by Premier, receive £1,000 to spend in store at DKNY, and star in a ShortList style shoot. So I recommend you start practicing your best ‘blue steel’ — you might soon be unleashing your inner Derek Zoolander.
