LOCAL modelling hopefuls are invited to strut their stuff at Westfield Tuggerah as part of the Woman's Day Miss Country Girl Australia competition.
The nation-wide model search event aims to give country girls aged 8-28 a chance to break into the national modelling industry.
With regional areas of Australia producing some of the country's high-profile models (think Miranda Kerr from Gunnedah and Jennifer Hawkins from Newcastle), the winner of this competition could end up on an international catwalk.
Gorokan entrant Chloe Walsh, 12, came second in the junior Central Coast section last year, and will be lining up again on May 26 and 27 when the competition comes to Tuggerah.
Chloe said the contest was all about having fun and acquiring new skills.
"I learned so much in the training last year and it gave me the confidence to want to model," she said.
"I just shot the European summer catalogue for French sportswear company Decathlon."
