THE Miss Teen Model Competition hosted by the Fiji Fashion Week Limited began on Thursday at the Fiji Arts Club.

The Nivea-sponsored competition, which aims to identify young women with modelling interest and potential, is part of the lead-up to the Fiji Fashion Week 2014 next month.

The competition started with auditions and eliminations before the training of the final 20 contestants for the finals which will take place on April 12.

"Those successful in the final 10 have the opportunity to go on and forge a career internationally," said FJFW managing director Ellen Whippy-Knight.

"But they also need to be business savvy and this can be taught along the way with good management."

The successful model will also be offered a two-year contract with Model Fiji. "The Miss Teen Model Competition was created to recruit models for Fiji Fashion Week as a starting block," Ms Whippy-Knight said.

Reigning Miss Teen Model Mykaela Powell, a student of Yat Sen Secondary School, said the only way to win the competition was to compete without fear.

This year's winner will receive $1000 cash prize, with the first and second runners-up receiving $750 and $500 respectively. Three prizes of $200 will also be available for the contestants chosen as Miss Personality, Miss People's Choice and Miss Photogenic.
