TMA is back with a new look...
Guaranteed to find...
THE NEXT BIG FACE IN FASHION
+ p h a s e s
phase ONE || THE APPLICATION
Gotta put yourself out there if you're ever going to be discovered! This is a two-round phase that will not only introduce us to you, but also determine which models we decide to take under our wing and allow into the agency. You will begin by submitting your polaroids to the agency. We will then make you over and shoot your compcards in order to see who has the potential to become a model.
phase TWO || SUDDEN DEATH ROUND
Before we send you out to clients, I want to make sure we are sending the best of the best. This is a test shoot round that will hopefully show us who has what it takes and who just isn't up to par. A number of you will be cut based solely on this single round.
phase THREE || CASTING ROUNDS
Impressing the right people will take you places in this industry. This phase, making up the bulk of the competition, will test your ability to market and sell yourself to high profile magazine editors, fashion designers and clientele that could possibly make or break your career. Your week will begin with a go-see to the client and end with a test job. The client will be a guest judge for the week. Out of the three sources you need to impress (public/panel/client), the client will have the largest affect on your weekly score, so it is crucial that you impress them.
phase FOUR || INTERNATIONAL ROUNDS
We want to find a model who can not only survive in New York City, but also around the globe. Each round, we will be jet-setting off to a different international location and having an extravagant shoot based on that city.
phase FIVE || THE FINALE
The three models left standing will compete in three final tasks. In the end, only one model will be left standing and make it to the top of the agency.

+Beginning with the Sudden Death round, there will be panel. Based on the weekly scores, a callout will be made. Not everyone will be brought in to face the panel. During the Sudden Death Round, only the Bottom 6 will face judging. During the Casting Rounds, only the Top 4 and Bottom 4 will be judged. Besides the Sudden Death Round, where elimination will be determined on the weekly score, the Bottom 2 will be put up for the public vote, which will determine who is eliminated.
+TOTA or "Top of the Agency". Unlike previous cycles, earning a first call-out comes with a few advantages. During the casting rounds, you will have the privilege of selecting the client for the next round from a provided list. During the international rounds, you get to pick the next international destination from a list. Throughout the competition, you will also earn a 24hr extension without penalty on the following week's shoot.
+Fan Favorite Creating a fanbase is significant in becoming a household name in the industry. Therefore at the beginning of the week, starting with the sudden death round and ending the week before the finale, a poll will open for the public to cast their favorite. It will remain open until panel. At panel, the fan favorite of the week will be announce. He/she will receive a bonus on his/her weekly score.
+Extension/Substitutions You will have around 5-7 days to complete each shoot, which I feel is a good enough of time, so unless you were TOTA the previous week, you will NOT be able to request an extension without a penalty. Your will lose 25% of your votes for each day you are late. I will allow late photos to come in 48 hrs past the deadline before posting the photos. You have until panel to get your photo in for the week. As for substitutions, you will only be able to request a substitute ONCE during the entire competition.
+Campaigning for votes beyond this thread and the TMA discussion thread is PROHIBITED, for BOTH the shoot AND the Fan Favorite poll. Any model caught doing so will have his/her votes negated.
