OUR Face of 2013 winners got their hands on some of their sparkling prizes this week thanks to Collinson Jewellers.
Hannah Jo Orrell and Daniel Corner were the judges’ favourites at the Stadium Of Light final, and part of their prize package was a selection of jewellery from the family-run jeweller’s in Sunderland’s Crowtree Road.
The pair each received a new watch plus other goodies, and owner Harry Collinson says they were clear winners.
“It was a unanimous decision by the judges,” he said. “This year’s entries were fantastic, and it was great to see so many boys getting involved.
“I’m confident both Hannah Jo and Daniel will be a great asset to the city, and they are already championing Sunderland wherever they go.”
The 18-year-olds have been signed to Tyne Tees Modelling Agency and are both looking forward to their portfolio shoot with Scott Spock Photography.
Hannah Jo, from Shiney Row, who is studying dance at Blackpool Dance College, said: “I just want to get started on the modelling now, and hopefully Tyne Tees can get me lots of work. I’m over the moon with my gifts from Harry.”
Daniel from Roker, who is studying A-Levels at Newcastle College said: “Receiving our prizes is making the whole experience feel more real.
“I think the photoshoot will be fantastic, and that’s when it will sink in.”
