Out of State Models (Please Read Carefully)
1.

So, that means you must submit your two photos (see above), a video and your application to be considered.
2. You should upload your video clip to www.YouTube.com and send us the URL to the YouTube.com page in the space provided on the application below. If you indicate that you live out of the state of New York but do not send us a link attached to your application, your submission will be voided upon receipt.
Tips for Submitting Your Video:
Please keep your video short and to the point (no longer than 3-5 minutes in length).

Please check the lighting on your camera and make sure that your video is well lit.
Please make sure that your cameraperson pans up & down and captures your entire body in the frame as you are walking.
Please make sure that your video captures you walking both towards and away from the camera
3. Transportation and lodging - While we want to give everyone an opportunity to participate and will consider models who live outside of the city of New York, if you are selected, transportation to the audition and the show will not be reimbursed. We understand that transportation to New York City can be costly and strongly urge you to consider this before making the commitment to participate in this event.
Note to ALL NYC and Local Models:
There will be a closed casting (date TBA). Only those models with which there is an interest will be notified of the date and location of the casting.
There will also be a 3-hour runway intensive rehearsal prior to the show to tighten up your runway walk; attendance at this rehearsal is MANDATORY for participation in the show.
