The competition among the participants will be very tough, as the selection criteria are very demanding. It all takes place as dictated by professional practice. In order to take part in the competition, prospective models have to register online at and send in two photographs of themselves (one portrait and one full-length picture). Applicants must be at least 1.70 meters tall. The pictures of the applicants will be displayed at the Young Faces website, where users can evaluate them.

Photokina model contest - Sessions and Finals
A panel of experts will choose the 200 most suitable candidates, who will then be invited to four regional casting sessions and photo shoots. The regional casting sessions will be documented by professional photographers from AWI. These photographs will be compiled into a sed card for each prospective model and displayed once again at the YOUNG FACES website for online viewing and evaluation. At each regional event, ten participants will be selected for the final round in Cologne.
