Many competitions and pageants charge an Entry Fee to just be considered and then add lots of hidden costs and charges on top. Top Model is FREE to enter and apply.

However. If an Applicant is selected for a place in the TOP MODEL competition and Finals, the Applicant is required to fund a Place Confirmation as their commitment to the competition and to the charity.

Payment of the Place Confirmation becomes due at the time of an Applicant being accepted and offered a place as a Finalist for the TOP MODEL competition.

The Place Confirmation commitment includes all of the following for the Finalist;

  • A confirmed place in the Top Model competition and finals
  • Official Top Model branded Finalists Access-All-Area’s VIP Pass to use and keep
  • Official branded TOP MODEL finalists merchandise (where applicable)
  • Free entry to all Top Model finals shows and VIP parties
  • Professional Coaching & Mentoring
  • Professional Make-Up & Hair at the Finals
  • Dressed by Designers at the Finals
  • Access to official images from the Finals
  • Career Management Advice & Guidance from leading professionals

The Place Confirmation for Top Model 2018 has been frozen for the 7th year in succession at only £175. This can be funded from one person or by a company or from multiple sources or be paid by the Finalist – it’s entirely the finalists decision.

If a company or business provides the Place Confirmation on behalf of a Finalist, the company or business is also entitled to;

  • Their business name and web-link prominently positioned with the Finalists personal online competition profile for the duration of the competition to advertise the business.
  • Two tickets to the Top Model show that the Finalist is appearing in. Tickets need to be claimed by a pre-specified date in order to be used and can be upgraded to VIP by paying the difference between the ticket prices.

There is also the obvious additional post event exposure potential for a business should the finalist being supported go on to collect a major Top Model award or WIN!
