Girlfriend, Australia’s number one teen magazine brand, announced the six national finalists in its coveted Girlfriend Priceline Pharmacy Model Search – Australia’s only national model search roadshow, which famously launched the careers of Samantha Harris, Catherine McNeil, Abbey Lee Kershaw and Ruby Rose.
The six national finalists, who hail from New South Wales, Queensland and South Australia, were selected after competing in the nationwide search, which toured the country throughout the month of July in search of healthy girls with a unique look and confidence.
The six national finalists:
- Madelaine Thomson – St Ives, NSW
- Sameerah Osman – Kellyville Ridge, NSW
- Jodie Nolan – Glenelg, SA
- Tamara-Kate Wilson – Salisbury, SA
- Nevaya Adkins – Springfield Lakes, QLD
- Taylor Clark – Ashgrove, QLD
Editor of Girlfriend, Tamara Davis says, “Once again the highlight of my year has been meeting so many Girlfriend readers across the country. Narrowing the nationwide search down to a final six doesn’t get any easier year on year – I am continuously blown away by the scope of talent our country has to offer – but these six girls definitely brought their own individual style and confidence to the competition.”
Allana May, Priceline Pharmacy Marketing Manager says, “Every year we are so impressed with
the amazing, confident girls that enter the competition and this year certainly raised the bar. We’re delighted with the national finalists and look forward to working with them over the next 12 months.”
Ursula Hufnagl, Managing Director, Chic Management comments, “For the last 27 years, we have uncovered Australia’s future modelling talent and again this year, the scope has been incredibly impressive. We’re confident that this year’s national finalists have exciting international careers in front of them and we look forward introducing them into the industry over the coming years.”
The top six finalists were determined via an esteemed judging panel, comprised of Priceline
Pharmacy Sister Samantha Harris, Tamara Davis (Editor, Girlfriend), Ursula Hufnagl (Managing
Director, Chic Management), and Allana May (Marketing Manager, Priceline Pharmacy).
The overall winner will be revealed on the cover of the Summer issue of Girlfriend, on sale 4th
