Online voting and participation in the final round:

Taking part in online voting on the OUTLETCITY METZINGEN Facebook page gives applicants a chance to win one of two wildcards. Winning a wildcard guarantees a place among the 14 candidates, irrespective of the jury's decision. To do this, the applicant must publish an additional photo on the MODEL ACADEMY app at www.facebook.com/outletcitymetzingen. From 29 April 2013 to 03 June 2013 at 12 am, visitors and fans can judge the images with Likes and comment on them. The Promoter reserves the right to display the most popular photos separately on the FASHION & MUSIC and OUTLETCITY METZINGEN homepages.

The votes from users of the voting platform determine only two of the participants in MODEL ACADEMY. All other votes and evaluations by third parties represent only a recommendation for the jury and have no binding effect of any kind.

The candidates chosen by the jury will be notified from 14 June 2013 and the two winners of the online vote (wildcard) will be informed from 03 June 2013 at 12 am by e-mail. The winners will also be announced on the websites named above. Should a selected candidate not respond within 4 weeks of receiving notification of the win, his or her claim to participation in the MODEL ACADEMY will cease to be valid. All candidates undertake to take part in the semi-final and final rounds at FASHION & MUSIC 2013 in OUTLETCITY METZINGEN on the event days 26 and 27 July 2013, unless force majeure or a change to personal circumstances can be proven.

The Promoter reserves the right to conduct further castings or other campaigns which may have influence on the total number of participants of the MODEL ACADEMY.

Ascertaining the winners

The participant who takes first place among the female contestants will win a modelling contract with PARS Management, the participant taking the first place among the male contestants will win a modelling contract with KULT Model Agency. Furthermore, the Promoter will keep open the option of offering a special prize to be drawn for among the remaining participants in the final in the form of an advertising shoot for OUTLETCITY METZINGEN GmbH or any other company affiliated with the Promoter.

 

The jury alone is charged with choosing the male winner of the modelling contract with KULT Model Agency and the female winner of the modelling contract with PARS Management. The members of the jury are Peyman Amin, Ty-Rown Vincent und Pascale Jean-Louis.

 

The jury will choose the winners in a competition consisting of several stages, with a semi-final round on 26 July 2013 and the final on 27 July 2013. One application is deemed to be consent to possible participation in all the following competition rounds.
