Welcome to the NEWbie Model of the Year Competition!!!
We have decided to present the models who have been chosen as the NEWbie Model of the Week
in the year of 2009.
These programs are very important to me and I have found my involvement to be very rewarding. It is really gratifying to watch these new models learn and develop their skills ... and IMHO we are strengthening the model pool by helping new models get started on the right foot.
The LIST ~ a list of veteran photographers dedicated to helping "new" models build their portfolios.
The NEWbie Model of the Week Contest
is a members only
weekly competition exclusively for TheList
photographers and the newbie models who have connected with them through The List
. This is a chance for members of TheList

Rules and Regulations for the NEWbie Model of the Year Competetion:
This is the general populace's only opportunity to vote on a NEWbie Model competition until next year. Please bear in mind that when this contest is complete, the NEWbie Model of the Week Contest
will continue to be voted on only by members of the Top Drawer in private e-mails to the moderator.
Purpose and Mission for this contest (what you are voting for):
The NEWbie Model of the Week Comtest
is intended to help new models gain recognition and exposure by showing off their abilities. We hope that this yearly contest will continue the spirit of the weekly contest.
WARNING, OLD PHOTOS BELOW!!!
Take some time to go and review the profiles of the contestants. I've used the composites that were offered in the weekly contest = this means that the photos you see below are most likely very dated and most of the models have progressed beyond what is presented here.
be fair to the contestants and look at the recent work in their profiles before making your decision. I have tried to facilitate this by making the composites "clickable" - a mouse click will take you to the profile. Those using tabbed browsing can right click then "Open Link in New Tab" and so on.
