So you think you can be a model?

Tomorrow at the Eaton Centre in Toronto, Ford Models is holding an open call for the Supermodel of the World contest.

The open call is being held on level three of the Eaton Centre from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Here is some background:

From the world’s best modelling agency comes Canada’s next face of beauty and fashion.

Ford Models is the world’s largest global fashion talent management company. Each year, Ford Models searches the globe for its next female Supermodel to join the Ford Models' prestigious Women's division.

Three Canadians have been crowned the Ford Models Supermodel of the World: Monica Schnare in 1986, Tricia Helfer in 1992, and Leanne Spencer in 1996. Who will be the Canadian finalist this year? Is it you?

Stay tuned as Ford Model Scouts visit Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Toronto, and Montreal and select models from each region to participate in the finals.

Want to know the prize? The winner receives a $250,000 (US) modeling contract with Ford Models. 
The runners-up also receive modeling contracts with Ford Models for
$150,000 (US) or $100,000 (US). Sweet deal!

I will be there with a friend who is entering the contest, taking pics and asking model hopeful questions about why they think they have what it takes to be a supermodel.

Also check out editor Laura Lanktree's blog about the contest; if you have any questions, she is the one with the answers.

Here is a pic of last year's winner, Shelby Furber.

Good luck!
