WEARSIDERS are already proving they have the wow factor as entries for the Face of 2011 competition come rolling in.
We launched our annual competition, in association with Reds, on Monday and readers now have just three weeks to strike a pose and send in their stunning pictures.
Lorraine Conlon, a sales team manager at 2touch, was one of our first entries this year. The 24-year-old, from Castletown, said: “I’ve always wanted to enter, I’ve followed the competition for a few years and I decided to give it a go.
“My mam has been pushing me to do it for a while and the prizes look really good so I thought why not?”
This years winner can get their hands on some fantastic prizes including , teeth whitening at Olivers on Durham Road, £100 voucher for Eleven, plus a photoshoot and portfolio thanks to David Lawson studios.
The king or queen of the catwalk will also get a years modelling contract with Glamrus Modelling Agency and a years free hairdressing at Reds.
Full time mum, Holly Geldard, decided to put herself forward for our glamorous competition when a friend showed her the launch piece in this weeks Echo.
The 24-year-old from Millfield said: “I have never entered before and if my friend hadn’t of mentioned it I don’t know if I would have gone for it.
“I don’t know if I have the right figure to be a model but I thought I would give it a try.”
