The first runner up will be awarded a professional fashion photo shoot including hair and makeup, fifty color composite cards plus the one year membership to The Models Guild of Tampa Bay and afull year of online exposure on the First Impressions website.

According to Ms. Torretta, this type of event is vital to anyone getting into this industry for a host of reasons.
