ABOUT AUSTRALIA'S NEXT TOP MODEL SEASON 9
The creative direction of Season 9 of Australia’s Next Top Model aims to focus more on the core values of fashion and modelling, while also bringing a bold, new distinctive style to the series. From thousands of everyday girls that auditioned, we’ve cast the best 12 aspiring models ever seen on Australia’s Next Top Model.
For the first time ever the models position in the competition will be based on a new Top Model scoring system. Each week the girls will get a challenge and photo shoot score to determine who stays and who goes.
Standing between them and the title of Australia’s Next Top Model is the judging panel consisting of Jennifer Hawkins, Alex Perry and a third special guest judge each week. The girls will have to impress some of the biggest fashion names in the industry with the likes of Alessandra Ambrosio, Jean Paul Gaultier and Linda Evangelista giving them feedback.
Didier Cohen and new to Australia’s Next Top Model, Cheyenne Tozzi will be mentoring the girls every step of the way and teaching them everything they should know about the competitive modelling industry.
10 weeks of the competition will be themed, highlighting the various elements of the industry. Challenges range from working with some of the biggest brands in Australia along with completing photo shoots, captured by the best Australian photographers.
Our girls will travel widely to real fashion events to get a taste of what life is like as a real working model.
The winner of Australia’s Next Top Model will walk away with a 12-month modeling contract with IMG Models, the world’s number one international model agency, and will feature in an editorial spread for leading fashion magazine Elle Australia.
She will also head to New York to be a part of New York Fashion week, valued at $20,000 thanks to TRESemmé and drive away in a stylish, all new Mazda 2 Genki.
