Miss Newcastle is once again recruiting this February to find a hopeful young woman to crown their winner.
The winner is entered into Miss England and receives a modelling contract with Tyne Tees Models.
This weekend, Tyne Tees were scouting girls in Eldon Square, Newcastle for potential models and Miss Newcastle candidates.
Twenty girls will be shortlisted and will take part in the competition at Newcastle Civic Centre on June 6 for the Great Gatsby themed event.
Last years winner, Shannen Steinson, gave advice to this years contestants: “Confidence is they key in my eyes, it’s all about having fun. I think if the girls are genuinely enjoying themselves their confidence shines through naturally. So just relax and be sure to smile.”
The competition allows young women to kick-start a modelling career. Since last year’s competition, Shannen has gone on to model for ETC Magazine, along with general photo-shoots, days at the races and the official Great Gatsby themed photo shoot for this years contest. One of the images from the shoot is pictured below.
She added: “I absolutely loved my experience so I think this years will be so much fun. I can’t wait to judge.”
