Modelling competitions are all over the place at the moment. I blame Tyra Banks and her super-successful America's Next Top Model. Even Britain's Next Top Model (which last season was more like a reality show than a modelling competition) is coming back later in the year for a second season, this time with Lisa Snowdon at the helm. Hopefully this time the girls won't be forced to get naked in cold showers and eat ice cream while moaning orgasmically, and will do more decent shoots instead.

NaomiI get sent emails about modelling competitions quite frequently (well, this site is called Catwalk Queen) but I thought the latest one was worth a mention. It's being run to celebrate the launch of the new FreshLook® ONE-DAY daily disposable coloured contact lenses, and the winner will become the 'face' of the product in a big advertising campaign, as well as getting a contract with Naomi Campbell's modelling agency - Premier - and taking part in a photoshoot worth £1000 with a professional photographer - a great way to start off that portfolio.
