FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Australian Super Model of the Year ( ASOTY ) is a fashion focused beauty pageant that aims to represent women ( and men ) of diverse ethnicities and cultures. Australia represents this diversity naturally with people from all over the world living here and calling it home. We want to extend this inclusive platform to models and creative talent from other nations and cultures too. And that is the idea behind taking the event to other countries from our next season. We are including Indonesia and India this year. And of course, New Zealand. the goal is not as much to establish who is the most beautiful but to understand and communicate that everyone is beautiful.

The theme for this year is going to be ‘I am beautiful’, ‘I am strong’ and ‘I am enough’. We want to represent beauty within. And not just outside.

The registration fee structure will remain the same across all countries. An equivalent of AU$ 100 needs to be paid online while completing the registration form. For details, please refer to the COMPETITION page of the official ASOTY website.

We have a Sponsorship Programme in place for limited number of contestants who qualify but are not able to find a sponsor. Please contact the ASOTY team on kal@supermodeloftheyear.com after the auditions.

A tattoo is not going to make a difference as long as it is not on the face or the neck/ head area. It definitely is a limitation still in commercial terms but the industry is changing. we will be accepting models with tattoos however. ASOTY is all about inclusiveness and diversity.

A basic outfit that is used for casting is sufficient. A fitted denim or a pair of shorts, a fitted top and heels or boots would do. You can also bring a formal dress and a bikini for photo opportunities if you like.
We can schedule Skype calls and get videos from approved entrants in case the auditions are not held in your city for any reason.

We have a Sponsorship programme in place supported by our vision partners @worldofjass
There are limited sponsorships for entrants who are exceptional but unable to find any sponsors for various reasons. We do however require every finalist to try and secure a brand partner before they can decide that they haven’t been able to find one ready to support them. Securing a sponsor will also speak volumes about your drive, understanding business, networking and communication skills which are going to be vital in the modelling career anyways.

Absolutely. Having made it to the finals is a great achievement and we have loads of gifts and gift vouchers for all finalists worth thousands of dollars sponsored by our vision partners and some sponsors. You will be taking home some cool ASOTY 2020 merchandise. And there are many more prizes for those who support the vision partners and their individual brand partners the best.

Absolutely. Signing up for ASOTY does not change your agency status in any way. Please speak to your agency and let us know if you have any questions.

ASOTY will only choose to represent you if you are not signed and only in countries you are not represented in. The contracts, however, will only be done after discussions and approval from your agency.
