CAPPING its 29th year, Professional Models of the Philippines (PMAP), the country’s most esteemed models’ guild, held three casting calls for its model hunt that aims to discover the next game changers in the professional modelling industry.
The search is PMAP’s first project after the new set of officers lead by its president Raphael Kiefer were inducted last year.



The third casting call held recently at F1 Hotel in Taguig City yielded interesting and intriguing aspirants including 12-year-old, 5’8 ½” tall Kira Eowyn Manansala who does oil painting and ultimately ambitions to be a Miss Universe.
Aside from Kiefer, former PMAP president Angel Agustin, actress-model Marina Benipayo, beauty queen-model Patti Betita and top fashion designer Renee Salud, among others, conducted the auditions with select members of media joining in the interviews.
Reigning Miss Universe Philippines and PMAP member Maxine Medina, who is excited about competing for the 65th Miss Universe Pageant on January 30, 2017, also attended the casting call to support the search.



“An unknown or inexperienced model needs all the honing, polishing and nurturing on the rudiments of modeling that he or she can get to make it big in the modeling industry,” Agustin said.
The competition will have four preliminary challenges. Each challenge is to be preceded by a master class to be conducted by a fashion luminary such as model, photographer, stylist, director, etc. These challenges are Catwalk Challenge, the Model Look Challenge, the Face Challenge, and the Body Challenge.
Industry.
The search originally planned to select 10 pairs of finalists but with the rich harvest of potential models who could influence the future of modelling in the country, Salud said the final roster might be increased to 15 pairs. Females must be at least 5’8” tall with a maximum waistline of 24 inches while males must be at least 5’11” tall.



The final casting calls will be held at Marco Polo Davao (for the Davao/Mindanao screening), July 31; and Marco Polo Cebu (Cebu/Visayas screening), August 7.
The final casting call will be held on August 13.
The first Modele Philippines winning pair will receive a high level of exposure in the modeling world, the opportunity to work with the industry’s best, a one-year endorsement contract with Zen Institute, a fashion spread in a top fashion magazine, free trip to Thailand and cash prizes.
