Known as the fashion capital, New York City is the place to be for aspiring models and actors. Now, there is a website, that can help a new model reach their dreams. it is called Model Launcher. With the site, models enter monthly to win all expense paid trip to Miami for a career launching photo shoot.
Model Launcher LLC. has announced the official beta launch of their innovative new website ModelLauncher.com. The site is an original concept where aspiring male and female models can submit their photos each month according to their age range to participate in themed contests such as T shirt and Shorts, Little black dress, swimsuit & more. Once submissions are received, the submission process is closed after 21 days and public voting officially begins. The public is then allowed to vote photos up or down in order to participate in the selection of each categories winner. Winning ModelLauncher.com models will win an all expense paid trip to Miami, A stay at the W hotel, and a Professional photo shoot with photographer John Fisher, and publicity support by the Model Launchers PR firm in order to assist them in directly kicking off their careers. Models must be at the amateur level in order to participate and submission photos must follow themed guidelines in their entirety. Photos should not be professional for submission, but instead can easily be snapped via cell phone or standard cameras. Chances to win each contest will never be more than 1-999 as each contest immediately closes as soon as 999 entries have been received to truly provide models a chance to be seen and compete fairly.
“Within the modeling industry it is often extremely difficult for aspiring amateur models to find and access reliable and trustworthy contests that can truly benefit their careers.” States Model Launcher LLC. President and CEO Bill Staniford. “There is a definite beauty in our running contests online where the general public can participate and guide the selection process.”
Modellauncher.com is currently in Beta and though development is expected to be an ongoing process as with any social site, it is expected to announce its main launch within August of 2012. The site is free to the public, and registration is mandatory in order to submit votes, comments or to participate within any of the contests. Contests are broken out into male and female categories, along with a wide range of age ranges from 3-7 years old, all the way up to 35+. The website is the brainchild of CEO Bill Staniford and CTO Andy Cary. Staniford is largely known for his previous role as the Chief Executive Officer of PropertyShark.com, a website which aggregates real estate data and listings from hundreds of public and proprietary sources into an easy-to-use yet comprehensive property research website covering a dozen major markets. No stranger to online engagement Bill is excited to enter the modeling and entertainment industries.
“During our pre launch via Facebook our page the traffic well exceeded my expectations. The page currently has over 15,000 followers and interest level is high. The models are excited about this contest and are engaging us daily. This is such a simple yet effective business model and we really hope that we can help launch some wonderful careers.“ Continues Model Launcher CEO Staniford. “We are currently in the process of developing partnerships for winning models to have significant opportunities once they have become ModelLauncher.com winners.”
