Tamblyn Models 26thYoung Model Discovery Grand Final

th Young Model Discovery Grand Final over the weekend with seven major prize winners and one International winner announced. For the first time in the history of the YMD, an entrant from the Intermediate division was awarded the coveted International prize, which among other things includes a chaperoned trip overseas to meet with top International agencies. It was a unanimous decision from the judging panel to award Vanessa Harris, twelve, of indigenous background from Longreach in outback QLD the International Prize due to her striking features and high fashion editorial look. Taking into consideration to her young age, Tamblyns will postpone Vanessa’s international trip until she is older, and in the mean time will focus on her development meaning she will travel between Longreach and Brisbane in her school holidays for model training and photographic shoots. The story is similar to Indigenous top model Samantha Harris’, whom shot to fame at thirteen years of age after entering the Girlfriend magazine model search and has gone on to shoot for top designers and magazines including David Jones and Vogue Australia. The future looks promising for Vanessa who at twelve years old already stands at 171cm tall. From the Junior category, Che Watson representing Orion Springfield took out runway winner, Zakiah Enterman representing Inala Plaza took out Photographic Winner and Luca Pennisi representing Riverlink Shopping Centre took out Personality Winner. From the Intermediate category, Lauryn Watson representing Brookside shopping centre took out Photographic winner and Naeva Williams representing the Myer Centre took out Runway Winner. From the Senior category Anthea Lilley representing Inala Plaza took out Runway Winner and Keeley Douglas representing Kawana Shoppingworld on the Sunshine Coast took out Photographic winner. All major prize winners have secured a modelling contract with Tamblyn Models among a range of other prizes. The YMD is a charity event and the night was a success with all proceeds donated to Childhood Cancer Inc.]]>
