The finalists are Elysha De Rybel, Eva Calje-Van Der Klei, Leanna Elliott, Charlotte Sullivan, Michaelee-Jayne McDonald, Sophie Richards, Shannon Middlemiss, Holly Mccann and Paris Thorman. Each contestant was required to send in a photo of themselves which were judged by agency director Mel Radford Brown and the agency’s model booker Rebecca Dore. The winner of the competition will be announced next Tuesday after the agency has met each contestant in person. Portfolio is an established agency in the city that provides a professional representation of models and actors for both the local and international stage. The winner of the competition will receive a portfolio teenage workshop valued at $299 and a Clemency Alice Facialist “modern facial” valued at $105.

Mrs Radford-Brown said due to the standard competition being so high they may offer a second and third prize. “I am looking at about four of them who will sign. We will be offering contracts for sure.” Eylsha De Rybel PHOTO: SAM BARROW Charlotte Sullivan Leanna Elliott Michaelee-Jayne McDonald DESIGNER FASHION AT OUTLET PRICES SMART BRANDS SMARTER PRICES HORNBY 409 Main South Road | Open 10am–5pm, 7 days
