A great attitude! Two non-professional photos that you can leave with the judges. No portfolios or books will be considered. You will not be judges on your photos…they are for recognition only.

WHAT HAPPENS AT THE CASTING:

You may wait in long lines to be seen by the judges. Once in the casting an OFW team member will take your measurements, an OFW photographer will take two pictures and then you will meet the judges and walk for them, which will be videotaped. Those images and videos will be uploaded to a private website that OFW designers will have exclusive access to in order to select the models they are most interested in using.

This is your chance, which typically lasts approximately 30 seconds, for you to shine in front of the judges. Make sure to make eye contact and answer questions clearly and concisely…tip – try to give more than just one word answers.

Following the casting, model who are selected will be notified by July 4 at midnight if you are selected to walk for a particular designer(s). Keep in mind that you will NOT be notified if you are not selected.

Occasionally, there are last minute replacements needed so please make sure that you are checking OFW’s Facebook and other social media outlets to ensure you don’t miss your opportunity to jump in at the last minute if needed.

From an OFW News Release that went out earlier today... For Immediate Release

OFW to Host First-Ever Model Search 

Omaha, Neb., June 12, 2013 - Omaha Fashion Week is hosting its first-ever Model Search on Saturday, June 22. Organizers will select three winners who will receive a prize package that includes a modeling contract, a feature in Omaha FASHION Magazine and guaranteed placement to walk in the OFW Finale on August 24.

“The thing that makes the model search different from our regular OFW model calls is that we are giving away prizes to three top models,” said OFW Producer Brook Hudson. Model contestants must meet requirements to participate. Female models must be 12-30 years old, 5’8”-6’0” tall, sizes 0-14. Males must be 15-30 years old, 5’11-6’3” tall. Models are asked to bring two non-professional photos, walk the runway, and pose for a mini-photo shoot.

The first thirty participants will receive a free gift bag and all participants will receive free hair and makeup touch-ups by Sirens Salon and a mini-photo shoot with professional photographer, Greg Higgins.  Photos will be available for sharing on the OFW Facebook Page following the event.

"It's really remarkable that in just a few short years, several models who got their start at OFW are now working with agencies all over the world - from Singapore to New York.  I'm looking forward to discovering new faces who will follow in their footsteps," said Alyssa Dilts, founder of Develop Model Management. "We are really excited to back this new event with OFW by offering contracts to the winning contestants."

The OFW Model Search, sponsored by Develop Model Management, will be held at the Westroads on the second floor next to Dick’s Sporting Goods from 2 – 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 22. This event is free to the public and those who have already attended an OFW Model Call are welcome to attend the Search and vie for the prizes.
