Benetton’s Having A Model Contest!

Finally, a chance for normal people to represent: United Colors of Benetton is holding a global casting competition for its spring campaign, and they’re looking for non-models to do the job. All you have to do is build your profile by uploading your best pics–at least one close-up and one full-length–and explain a little bit about why you’re awesome. (That should be the easy part.) Then, browse the community to vote for other interesting faces. One-hundred finalists will go to New York to be whittled down to 20 by a group of judges. So, what are they looking for? “Something different, something unconventional, something surprising, something real. It’s not just how you look but how you are.” Which means you probably fit in there somehow, right? Submit your entry by March 16. []
