Ever dream of becoming a model, but too shy and intimidated to go through all those go-see’s? This is your chance! Solo, being a front runner of innovative ideas, invites you to its SOLO ONLINE MODEL SEARCH 2014.
The coveted modeling competition started back in 2009 and has been successful ever since. Yearly, close to 100 model poster entries are submitted to Solo’s site , which allows viewers to vote for their fave model. The 2012 grand winners, Ganiel Krishnan and Derek Espinosa, both had the chance to play out their modeling dreams with last year’s Online Model Search featuring Tonton Young’s Pupung. Past featured collections include Tony Velasquez’s Kenkoy, Larry Alcala’s Slice of Life. Solo’s Online Model Search is ingeniously launched with its Pinoy Cartoonist Memorabilia Series as contestants are tasked to wear one item from the featured collection and model it in their photo entries. Past featured collections include Tony Velasquez’s Kenkoy, Larry Alcala’s Slice of Life and Tonton Young’s Pupung.
This year, it’s all about Manix Abrera’s Kikomachine. Men and women’s apparel ranging from t-shirts, collared tees and shorts are all dawned with graphic images of Kikomachine’s trademark cartoons and beloved characters.
Running on its 5th year, Solo’s much-anticipated modeling competition starts on August 15. Contestants, male or female, should submit photo entries of themselves modeling one (1) item from Solo’s Pinoy Cartoonist Memorabilia Series featuring Manix Abrera’s Kikomachine while adhering to the theme: Street Life. Photo entries must also include at least one of the design elements found in the design pack which contestants can download at solo.com.ph. Contestants must then log on to Facebook and upload their entries, all of which will be screened by our moderators, through the Solo Online Model Search App/Tab.
Entries can be submitted until October 15 but voting of all approved entries will last until October 27. The contest is open to Filipino citizens at least 16 years old. Contestants below 18 years old must submit a parental consent form before joining which they can send via e-mail. Remember to focus on creativity, photo layout and styling! After the contest period, 20 finalists (Top 10 males and Top 10 females) will be chosen and invited for an interview. Solo is on the hunt for one male and one female with the most photogenic appeal and the best personality fit for representing the brand. These two individuals will be deemed as grand winners by our panel of judges and will each win cash prizes, gift certificates and of course, bragging rights as they see their images in all Solo stores! Their partner photographers/graphic artists will be receiving cash prizes as well. Model grand winners will also get the privilege to do two photoshoots for Solo’s 2014 campaigns with one of the best photographers in the business, Doc Marlon.
