NEW YORK, NY- APRIL 30, 2012 -- The “Are You the Next PromGirl?” international model search, hosted by PromGirl.com, Next Model Management, and Bakers announces its scouting tour finale on Saturday, May 12, 2012 at the Bakers store in the St. Louis Galleria from 1:00-3:00PM. After launching on January 2nd, 2012, candidates could enter the international search online through April 30th and attend scouting events at select Bakers store locations for a chance to be chosen as a finalist on the spot.
Jeff and Mary Clarke of Mother Model Management, affiliated with NEXT, embarked on a ten-city U.S. scouting tour for the “Are You the Next PromGirl” search where they met modeling hopefuls around the country. Having been in the business for fifteen years, Jeff and Mary have launched the careers of stars such as Ashton Kutcher and Karlie Kloss among countless others. Jeff and Mary Clarke as well as a representative from NEXT will also be present at the tenth and final scouting event in St. Louis.
"We have been on the road, scouting the country for the past few months and we are thrilled to come full circle by bringing the final open call back home to St Louis," says Jeff Clarke. "We can’t wait to see who comes out for the finale and are excited to begin the final phases of this amazing contest."
Industry executives at NEXT will review the over 2,000 entries and select ten finalists based on overall appearance and photogenic qualities. Each finalist will create a short video explaining why she should be The Next PromGirl. The videos will then be posted to the official website (areyouthenextpromgirl.com) and put to a public vote. After two weeks of public voting, the two girls with the highest combined scores (public votes 33%, judges’ votes 67%) will be crowned the winners. The prize package includes a standard modeling contract with NEXT, an all-expense paid trip to NYC with chaperone, one prom photo shoot featured on PromGirl.com, one fashion photo shoot, a $500 gift card to PromGirl.com, a $300 gift card to Bakers and a professional style consultation.
