Step One – Create your Personal Account
Your account information is critical and will be used to book travel, verify that you are a real person, and will be seen by judges, brands, and modeling agencies. To give yourself the best chance possible, make sure you have accurate information. Incorrect information is grounds for disqualification. Modeling agencies may view your profile even if you do not win a contest.
Step Two – Choose a Contest and Submit a Photo
First make sure that you look for contests that match your age and sex. Secondly, follow the directions of the contest. Most of the contests provided by Model Launcher require a non-professional photo. A non-professional photo not only keeps the contests fair, but it also is what agencies want to see. Keep the photos raw with minimal make-up if you really want to attract attention. Also, be aware whether the contest calls for a headshot or a full-length photo. You might get passed the moderators but you won’t win. Keep your chances good and follow the directions.
Step Three – Get Social
Sharing your contest link and getting votes is especially important in the early rounds. This step lets the judges know who is serious about this opportunity. Successful models know what it takes to self-promote. Social media makes this easier than ever.
Step Four – Voting
Model Launcher has developed a two-part voting steps. The first round of voting is called the seeding round. The seeding round calculates all contestants from top to bottom and rounds the contestant field to the closest geometric sequence (2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, etc.). Each round after the seeding round is considered an elimination round, where half of the field will move forward. (Hint: Being social is very important in the early rounds, before the judges get involved.)
Step Five – Winning
If you are talented, determined, and quite frankly lucky, you may end up winning a Model Launcher contest. Model Launcher winners become part of our family. We become your personal public relations team. Every winner will get a press release, submission to a fashion magazine, and model agency outreach. Beyond that, if you ever go to another casting call, you can tell the director that you are a Model Launcher winner and that Model Launcher will promote that shoot, film, movie, or commercial just because you are in it. Once you have won a Model Launcher contest, we want you to be as successful as possible and we will do everything in our power to help you make it to the top.
