The Company Casting Call with River Island is back with a bang for 2012 - to find girls like YOU to model in our real reader issue! Last year, we opened up the competition to be able to reach lots more of you - and we can't wait to get started. This is the fourth year running we're working alongside the amazing River Island on our real reader month, where, each year, our May issue is officially a model-free zone with real girls from all over the UK taking over the fashion and beauty pages of the mag. That's where you come in...
Each year we celebrate the diversity of all you gorgeous British girls by giving over the entire May issue of the magazine to YOU - you lovely ladies will model the fashion shoots, contribute to the features and get glammed up for the beauty pages. Due to the massive success of our online Casting Call last year, instead of hosting the Casting Calls in major cities, this year we've staying interactive - you can upload your photos from your computer anywhere in the UK, which means that we get to see a lot more of you from all over the country. We can't wait to see all you gorgeous girls!
Were looking for girls of all different shapes and sizes with individual styles, looks and personalities to star in the magazine you dont need to be a size 8 and 6ft tall! To be in the running all you have to do is upload one or more photos of yourself to our Casting Call gallery and fill in a few details.
The Casting Call judging panel will be choosing their top 12 girls from the entries. The public will also vote for their favourite girl who will join the others in the final in London on 24th February. Finalists will have their hair and make-up done before having a professional photo shoot styled by the Company team. The lucky finalists will also get to keep their River Island outfit from the shoot. After the shoot the judging panel will choose their top six who will return to London for their Company fashion or beauty shoots.
The competition opens on January 20th and closes on February 9th.
However, before you upload your pictures, take a look at our judges's tips for what to wear and how to pose - and what we're REALLY looking for in our real readers... You can also take a peek at our gallery of previous real readers - from how they looked at the Casting Call final to their finished photo shoots for the magazine.
