If you are interested in being the next "green" model a la Summer Rayne Oakes, and you are passionate about environmental issues, then you might want to check out and enter Project Green Search, a modeling competition for those who bleed green.
From the website: "Take a stand, get noticed, align your modeling endeavors with your personal beliefs, be an advocate for the environment, animal welfare, fair trade, and human rights. Be the poster girl for what is ok to sell... and what is not."
To be eligible you must meet the following:
1.Candidates must be female at least 17 years of age and US residents.
2.Candidates must be dedicated to professionalism, environmental awareness and social responsibility.
3.No previous modeling experience or agency representation is required.
4.There are no restrictions on age (other then the minimum age) or height.
5.Must be able to attend Portland Fashion Week for final competition October 9th-12th, 2009.
All you need to do is submit a form, send in an essay, pictures and a short video clip and you'll be on your way to being the next green model. Registration closes on September 16th and online voting begins the next day, which will allow the public to narrow the entrants down to 10 finalists.
Ms. Crunchy Domestic Goddess has convinced me to enter and, since there's no age limit and us antiques are allowed to submit materials, I think I'll give it a whirl. If I do, I'll let you all know when you can vote online. Should be a hoot!
