Face of Foothills Model Search Holds Valley Casting Calls

Do you think you have what it takes to be Arizona Foothills’ next Face of Foothills? Well AFM has already begun its search and has even teamed up with Westcor to find its 2011 poster girl. The dynamic duo will hold open calls for local models at specific locations in the Valley starting May 1 in the famed Scottsdale Fashion Square!

The second-annual Face of Foothills Model Search is a contest to find the best “face” for not only a cover feature and six-page spread in the printed magazine, but also as the featured model at the top of the booming azfoothills.com Web site for an entire year. Plus, the winning model will receive more than $10,000 in cash and prizes!

It doesn’t matter if you are older, younger, short or tall because all ages, heights, sexes and sizes are permitted to enter. But if you are a minor, you will need a parent or guardian present at casting call.

“We can’t wait to see the entries this brings in,” says President & Publisher Michael Dee, “Between our Web presence and the exposure at Westcor’s shopping centers, we’re sure to command the attention of the best models in the Valley.”

The Casting Calls will be opportunities for models to meet representatives from the magazine, fill out entry forms and submit headshots to the contest, or have a headshot taken by a professional photographer.

There will be two types of casting calls…

Tier One Casting Calls
Tier One Casting Calls will be an opportunity for the magazine to choose a model from the pool of that center’s entrants, who will bypass the voting rounds and make it straight to the Finale Party as a finalist. The magazine will meet all entrants and accept all photos and information before choosing a finalist, who will be announced at the end of the Casting Call. All other entries will be submitted to the Face of Foothills pool of entries and are still in the running to win the title. These Casting Calls will have music, informal modeling and Westcor beauty bars. The Tier One Casting Calls will be held:

  • May 1, 1-3 p.m., Scottsdale Fashion Square
  • May 8, 1-3 p.m., Chandler Fashion Center
  • May 15, 1-3 p.m., Kierland Commons

Tier Two Casting Calls
Tier Two Casting Calls will be an opportunity for the magazine to meet entrants and accept photos and information from people from across the state of Arizona. Though a finalist will not be chosen live at these events, it’s a chance for those who may not live in the Phoenix metro to meet the staff in person and enter the contest. These casting calls will also showcase fabulous food and fun from Westcor. The Tier Two Casting Calls will be held:

  • May 4, 5-7 p.m., Promenade at Casa Grande
  • May 6, 5-7 p.m., Biltmore Fashion Park
  • May 7, 5-7 p.m., Fiesta Mall
  • May 11, 5-7 p.m., Flagstaff Mall
  • May 12, 5-7 p.m., La Encantada Mall in Tucson
  • May 13, 5-7 p.m., SanTan Village
  • May 14, 5-7 p.m., Arrowhead Towne Center
  • May 18, 5-7 p.m., Prescott Gateway Mall
  • May 19, 5-7 p.m., Desert Sky Mall
