Submit your best color headshot (half body is also acceptable). We prefer natural happy photos with smiles that show personality. Please turn in photos during registration. Glitz photos will not be accepted, however, photos may be slightly retouched. Pictures must be of only the contestant. Maximum photo size 8x10. Optional available at all competitions.
Select your very best high quality pictures (select a variety of poses and outfits, not just head shots). We are looking for pictures that could be seen in a magazine. Please submit your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org and type in the subject line the contestant's name, and the words “Print Model Submission.” Once you submit your photo and the text you would like added to your print model ad (it can be good luck from your supporters or anything you like), our staff will create a one-of-a-kind ad featuring your photographs. The National Cover Model will be selected based on her print model photo submissions. In order to be considered for National Cover Model you must submit a minimum of 2 print model photos. Each contestant's photos will be judged as one portfolio. Every contestant that enters at least 2 print model submissions will receive a beautiful Cover Girl tiara on stage. Optional available at National competition only.
