Runway Requirements for Newbies

Requirements – A Look Inside a Runway Modeling Agency

Ever wondered what it’s like to audition for runway modeling? What are the runway requirements for newbie models and how do you compare?

Many girls in their teens to early twenties dream of getting discovered and becoming famous like Tyra Banks or Cindy Crawford but, in reality, most don’t make the cut.

And, the better known the agent is (i.e. Elite, Ford, IMG, Etc.) the tougher it is to break into the industry.

Males and females alike are getting turned down for different, and sometimes obvious, reasons.

Most can’t figure why.

But, watching this short clip will give you an idea of how quickly you’ll be tossed out if you don’t have what it takes.


Wait! I am not writing this to discourage you in your quest to realize your dream job – not at all.

I’m giving this lesson so that you will be better prepared the next time you go to even a local open call.

I want you to realize that there is work involved (lots of it) to become a model and get listed even with the smaller local modeling agency.

Take this to heart. Do your homework and learn all you can about walking the catwalk before going to that first open call to get a jump on the competition – there will be plenty!

The more you know, the more you practice, the more impressive you’ll be during your audition.
