Over the past four years, some great models have emerged thanks to this campaign, including Lizzie Haines, Laura Butler, Emma Donaghy, and Lauren Colfer. All of these ladies were just regular people like you and me before taking part in the competition which changed their lives and launched them as lingerie stars. Curvy Kate are now looking for their new face of 2012.
Are you thinking of entering? Already 300 ladies have done so and this number is growing daily so you'll need to find a way of making your application stand out and catch the eye of the judges before the deadline on 16th March 2012.
So how can you do that? There are heaps of useful blog posts and web pages available on the internet, including:
The recurring theme in all of these posts is to take good, natural photos of yourself. You'll need to upload three full length lingerie/bikini shots and two head shots, so make sure you show yourself at your smiling, photogenic best in every picture! If you are taking the photos yourself, use your camera's timer rather than holding the camera away from yourself as this way you can pose more naturally and at different angles. Lighting will also make a big difference to your photos so take lots of test shots to find what works best for you.
Above all, enjoy the experience! As I have found from taking numerous photos for my blog, it can be great fun posing for pictures and discovering what angles suit you best.
Don't forget - the competition closes on 16th March 2012 so don't miss out! You can enter the competition via Curvy Kate's Facebook page here.
