ARE you the next Kate, Naomi or Agnes? If so, Wakefield’s Next Top Model needs you.

We’re searching for the next face to make an impact on the fashion scene.

And the once-in-a-lifetime prize is very much in your reach.

Wakefield’s Next Top Model 2012 is open to all women, of all sizes, over the age of 16, we’re looking for an ambassador for Wakefield.

The winner will receive an introduction to top modelling agency, Catwalk Model Management, be used as the Express’ model for fashion shoots and promos, and also be the face of Trinity Walk shopping centre.

It’s an amazing launch pad for any woman with ambitions to make it as a model.

On Saturday, the Next Top Model talent spotters were at competition sponsors Trinity Walk to pluck shoppers from the crowd.

Among those who entered on the day were 21-year-old Hannah Buxton from Altofts.

Just like last year’s winner Ovidija Zemaityte, she could be in this year’s glittering final, and so could you.

Here’s how it works:

Send in a picture of yourself along with a completed coupon, available in this week’s Wakefield Express, and don’t worry it doesn’t have to be professional, we’re looking for raw talent.

You can also post in the coupon and e-mail your high-resolution picture to After nominations close on July 30, all the pictures will be printed in the Express and then put to reader vote.

The top tier will then make it to a second stage of reader voting, and then the final ten will be invited to a special fashion photo shoot, and then to perform at a glittering red carpet catwalk show to be held in Trinity Walk in front of a panel of judges.

All entrants will need to be available for the final event at Trinity Walk on Sunday, September 9, and fittings on Tuesday, August 28 and Friday, August 31. Hair, makeup and the clothes will be provided by Room 97 and the Trinity Walk outlets.
