Ex-beauty queen and Chief Executive Officer of Prive Luxury Wedding and Event, Elohor Elizabeth Isiorho, has said that she is exploring her international experiences, to discover promising African talents and give them a pedestal to become supermodels internationally, whilst promoting and developing the modelling industry within Africa.
Explaining the importance of the initiative to journalists on the theme “Africa’s Largest Model Search” at Wheat Baker Hotel, Ikoyi, Lagos during the week, Isiorho said whilst promoting and developing the modelling industry within Africa, Future Face Africa will be granting opportunities to people from various backgrounds and skin tones, aiming to go beyond the buzzwords of “diversity” and “inclusivity” to create an initiative that truly celebrates the range of beauty that the industry has to offer.
“FFA will be equipping selected models with the knowledge and skills to achieve international success and to have long-lasting careers in a very competitive industry. For these models, Future Face Africa will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that could change their lives forever,” she said.
She said that while the past decade has witnessed a meteoric rise in recognition and appreciation for African models and African fashion all over the world, there is still so much untapped potential waiting to be discovered. She noted that FFA seeks to fill this gap.
“This explosive new talent search will be the largest scouting competition Africa has ever seen. Future Face will focus on new talents, both male and female, and will attract thousands of candidates within Africa to take part in this extraordinary competition. Selected models will be competing for a chance to win a 2-year international modelling contract with a Top International Modelling agency, as well as a USD 5,000 cash prize, offering hopefuls, not just a launchpad for modelling but a career on the world stage,” added a statement from the organisers.
