Those of you who have followed us for the last few (17!) years will know that every year we run a model competition, where we pick two winners who go on to represent Friars Walk in advertising and across other bits and bobs. 
This year is no different - this month we are launching our annual model competition - but it’s had one heck of a lockdown glow-up!
This year, we aren’t just looking for two models - we are looking for someone who is the whole package - we want someone’s who is chatty, up for a challenge, from Newport, super positive about our city and most importantly - fun! This year’s winners will go on to work with us and Friars Walk on social media coverage, they will get the chance to partake in professional photoshoots - and even ge to star on the cover of Voice. Oh - and did we mention the fact that Hairplay are currently working up an immense prize for our winners AND Friars Walk are making plans too (pick up next month’s mag for more info!).
We are looking for people who share our values and ideals, and we want anyone who is up for the challenge to apply. We don’t care how tall or short you are, what size your jeans are or about your lockdown hair disaster! 

Are you up for it? If so, here’s what you need to do:
Grab some headshots (no filters please - the more natural, the better) fill out the entry form, which is here:

Small print The closing date for entries will be 5pm on 30th June 2021. Personality is as important as anything else, so this year we will be arranging short video calls with our shortlist of entrants to get to know them a bit better. During the second shortlisting period, we may give you some challenges (short ones) to carry out for people to get to know you better as part of the voting process. If you’re under 18 and you’re selected for the shortlist, we will need a signed permission slip from your guardian before we progress. Please be honest about your age - if we find out you’ve fibbed, you will be disqualified immediately, regardless of the stage in the competition. A guardian will also need to be present for any element of the competition for which we are directly in contact with you. There is no cash alternative to the prizes. If you send us images that are obviously PhotoShopped or super-filtered, we will not consider them - sorry! The winners will be announced in the November 2021 edition after two rounds of voting.
