HCM CITY — The 2018 Việt Nam Top Fashion Models contest was launched in HCM City this week, with the organisers encouraging young men and women around the country to apply.
Organised by Phương Việt Performance Art Agency and its partners, the event aims to discover models for careers at home and abroad.
It also encourages amateur models to show off their modelling skills and offers them an opportunity to work professionally.
Contestants must be Vietnamese aged between 16 and 24.
Women must be at least 1.65 metres tall and men 1.75m.
They will be judged on their appearance in both modern and traditional costumes.
Poise and style of presentation will be the decisive factors in determining the winners.
Ten finalists will be nominated, with the top female and male contestants and first runners-up winning hundreds of millions of đồng in prize money.
The winners will go on to compete in international beauty and modelling contests this year.
Several talented designers, make-up artists, and stage directors, including 2017 Miss Globe Khánh Ngân and 2017 Manhunt International winner Trương Ngọc Tình, will help the contestants.
The contest’s selection rounds will be held in Hà Nội, Hải Phòng, Đà Nẵng, Cần Thơ and HCM City on March 10, 13 and 15.
The final will be held on March 31 in Bà Rịa-Vũng Tàu Province. — VNS
