NAM Provides

  • This super fun contest puts you on the set of a real live photo shoot. You will work with professional modeling industry experts who will help guide you through what it would be like on a professional editorial photo shoot.

  • Bonus! You get all the photos the photographer takes to use in building your modeling portfolio!

  • Try to select poses and expressions that project a happy smile and reflect a positive personality. Pictures that show a too mature or demure look generally do not do well.

  • At pageant check-in, you will be assigned a time to go to the photography area for your photo shoot.

  • You want to achieve “Personality” during your session. Poses and expressions that convey excitement or emotion often do well.

  • Each entry is judged separately and each session provides another opportunity to win.
