Season 6 of America’s Next Natural Model is the Social Media season, where Facebook, Twitter and Instagram will be the hotspots for promoting all participating models and our amazing sponsors. Models will be in the public’s eye throughout the season, as almost every challenge will be accompanied by videos via our YouTube channel, to ensure that ANNM and all participants are given even more exposure. Additionally, models will participate in hairstyle challenges and fashion challenges where natural hair becomes a part of the styles showcased.
It’s not just about taking an amazing picture, it’s also important that models are able to promote themselves via social media effectively, while sharing their personality with the viewing public. In this way, even more depth will be added to the competition, as models will get a true picture of what it takes to be in the modelling industry, while simultaneously honing their skills.
Models, there’s still time to register, so don’t miss your chance to be a part of this amazing competition. Show off your natural beauty, while growing as an exceptional individual.
Looking forward to the latest instalment of America’s Next Natural Model competition, which will begin in January 2015!
