Information

Our competition is open to all ages (18+) and all sizes and vintage styles - whether you are size 8 or size 18 or size 14 or size 24 (& so on) then you are so very welcome to enter! Perhaps you like 1940's or 1950's, Pin Up style or Rockabilly then the competition is for you! 

Rogue Model Management represents lots of different ages, types and styles of models - alternative looks, Pin Up, Burlesque, Vintage, Boudoir etc so don't think that you don't look like a typical 'model' or that you aren't a typical model's age or size. We are looking for someone that is totally fabulous - age and size doesn't come into it!

Competition Stages

Stage One: Entrants submit a photo. All photos will be shared via the Violet Loves Vintage Facebook page and people will be able to vote for their favourite/s. Entrants will be able to share their entry so their family and friends can vote and the competition will be promoted across all social media channels. All photos must be submitted by Thursday 15th February 2018. Voting will close at 12pm on Monday 26th February 2018.

Stage Two: The 15 entries with the most likes will automatically go through to the Semi-Final round, along with 10 Violet Loves Vintage Wildcard entries (selected by Violet Loves Vintage from all the entries). The 25 Semi Finalists will be announced on the Violet Loves Vintage Facebook Page. In order for the votes to count, voters must like the photo of the lady they want to vote for, PLUS like the Violet Loves Vintage Facebook Page. The reason for this is that Facebook likes on photos can be bought very cheaply and so the results can be skewed and unfair. Asking votes to like both the page and the photo ensures the person voting is a 'real' person and not a paid for, automated vote.

Stage Three: Semi-Finals - The 25 Semi-Finalists will be whittled down to 10 Finalists by Violet Loves Vintage and announced on the Violet Loves Vintage Facebook Page. The 10 Finalists will be invited to Manchester on Saturday 24th March 2018 for the Final. If any of the 10 Finalists are unable to attend the Final at Afflecks, Manchester on Saturday 24th March then they will forfeit their place in the competition. There will be reserve Finalists, and they will be invited to attend the Final if any of the original 10 Finalists are unable to attend. 

Final Stage: The 10 Finalists will be invited to meet the Judges, individually and  in person, at Afflecks, in Manchester on Saturday 24th March 2018 and the winner will be announced during the afternoon.
